Heavyweight icon Mike Tyson believes that Jake Paul and his brother Logan Paul breathed new life into boxing when the sport was at its lowest.
Tyson saw Jake Paul knocking out Nate Robinson in his undercard on November 28th and was left mesmerized. Although Jake Paul is just 2-fights old, Tyson still puts him on the top and urges the boxing promoters to set up a belt for him.
It might sound bizarre to a lot of fans, but ‘Iron Mike’ has already pitched his idea in doing so. Taking note to Jake Paul’s superstardom and the ability to garner views, Mike Tyson tags it as “beautiful”.
While Jake and Logan are just beginners in the sport, a compliment from the legendary Mike Tyson will clearly boost them for taking more fights in the coming days.
Hailing the 23-year-old’s boxing abilities, ‘Iron’ said, “That is beautiful. Jake Paul and his brother man, they are god gifted YouTube boxers. I mean boxing should give them a belt. You know because these guys brought boxing back to life.”
He added, “I know it’s hard to believe, but these guys brought it back. 25 million views to see this guys with some gloves on. The fight ended, and he has fought Nate Robinson right in there, right?”
Meanwhile, Jake Paul has already sighted some big matchups for himself. The list begins with UFC star Conor McGregor and goes all the way round to YouTuber KSI. It seems that ‘The Problem Chid’ is ready to go up against them all.
Jake Paul has 2 knockout wins under his name and remains unbeaten. Thus, he is moving rapidly towards the ultimate boxing glory. Meanwhile, he is yet to be tested against other celebrity boxers before he wanders into murkier waters.
