In a split second, Mike Tyson put Jake Paul in his place right away and praised him at the same time –

So f**king easy. But I would never, my whole f**king family and everybody loves him! That little white motherf**ker. He’s got balls, he’s got f**king balls. When you see a white boy with balls, I’m talking about for real like, ‘f**k you motherfu***r’,” said Mike Tyson.

Bob Menery then dug deeper into his earlier question and asked him how fast he would knock the 24-year-old out.

Mike Tyson then completely shut down the idea of fighting Jake Paul –

Nah man, let him have his fu**ing reign man, let him have his time.  Jake Paul is the only white boy I know that white boys hate. Why everybody don’t like him man? But when he’s doing his job, he’s putting on his shine, it’s an act.

Listen, they’re not real fighters, they’re exciting fighters. I don’t want to fight them, man. I fight real fighters, I fight fighters that hurt big, strong, scary men, those are the fighters I fight,” Tyson added.

Well aware of the fact that he’d make headlines and get people talking about him, he then made a bold claim that he is Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, and Floyd Mayweather of the new era.

I am on a trajectory to become the biggest prizefighter in the world.

Before the boxing purists take the storm to Twitter to slam Jake Paul for comparing himself to these legends, it is important to truly understand what he’s doing here.

It really doesn’t matter if his statement makes any sense or not, Paul got the job done by getting people to talk about him. This is what separates him from the rest and this is why some of the biggest fighters want to fight him.
