Hotboxin ‘with Mike Tyson
Mike Tyson is down to fight Jake Paul … in what would be one of the most talked about boxing matches ever.
There’s only one catch – Iron Mike wants a BILLION dollars.
55-year-old Tyson commented on his “Hotboxin ‘” podcast this week … as his conversation with boxers Jermell Charlo and the Boston Celtics legend Paul Pierce turned to a rumor fight against Jake.
Pierce said he heard Mike wanted to fight Jake, but Tyson seemed unaware of the rumor.
“Nobody told me that,” Tyson said. “Hey, I have no fucking money. So where’s the damn contract?”
“I’ve never heard this from anyone, I’m just heard this from you.”
Now Tyson and Paul are friends.
In fact, one could argue that Jake owes at least some of his boxing success to Mike. The problem child’s career exploded after he had flattened Nate Robinson at Tyson-Roy Jones Jr. undercard in November 2020.
The men have become good friends … and Mike even said they were together in St. Louis recently. Barts, where they partyed.
When Pierce asked Mike if he would ever fight again, specifically against Jake, Tyson quickly said “a billion dollars” … put up his price tag to fight Jake.
Tyson has previously denied reports that he was in “advanced talks” about fighting Jake in a $ 49 million boxing match … though his recent comments seem to suggest the fight is not completely off the table.
That is, if anyone can find an extra bill lying around.
