Paul said, “It’s so hard. Can I be honest with you? It’s like I’d love to fight Mike Tyson because it’s a legacy thing and I think I beat him, I really do and a lot of people laugh like I f**king beat him. He’s just too old.”

“But at the same time, if I beat Mike Tyson, you know, living legend. The narrative is you beat up an old man. And I have to beat up one of my heroes. That kind of sucks.”
