In June, it seemed impossible for Logan Paul to one-up the Floyd Mayweather fight. However, it seems the 26-year-old has done it again.

As unbelievable it might seem, ‘The Maverick’ could soon be the only human alive to have fought two of the sport’s greatest athletes of all time – Floyd Mayweather and Mike Tyson.

That’s right. After fighting boxing’s ‘Pretty Boy’ earlier this year, he is now reportedly scheduled to fight Mike Tyson in February 2022. Much like the last time, even this fight has now sparked a series of conversations across the internet.

This fight was initially announced by the host of a YouTube show called ‘Drama Alert’, Daniel Keem or more commonly known as ‘Keem Star’. He tweeted out a picture of Paul and Tyson and mentioned a target date for February 2022. He highlighted that he confirmed this through direct ‘sources’.

No official confirmation has been received from either Mike Tyson or Logan Paul; however, the February target seems to fall in line with Tyson’s original plan.

I am going to have a return fight in February and we are pretty skeptical about the opponent, but it will be a really stimulating opponent,said Mike Tyson.

Logan Paul recently even had surgery to treat an unknown hand injury; taking everything into consideration, could this fight actually happen?

Naturally, it can be fairly unsettling for long-time fans of the sport to watch the youngest heavyweight champion step into the ring against an opponent with a 29-year age gap. However, age is not the only thing ticking off boxing fans about this matchup.

It’s the ‘Paul’ tag that is pushing people towards thinking that he does not deserve to fight ‘Iron’ Mike. However, what people forget is that the Paul brothers are very good at what they do – not necessarily boxing, but selling.

Here are some mixed reactions to Logan Paul vs Mike Tyson –

While there is no legitimate confirmation yet, but if Logan Paul wanted to top his fight against Floyd Mayweather, Mike Tyson would definitely be on top of his hit list.

In this new age of celebrities becoming actual boxers and fighting some of the all-time greats, no rational person could make a logically sound prediction for Paul vs Tyson. However, what we do know is that Logan Paul is 29 years younger and Mike Tyson is still ferocious at 55.
