Jake Paul is known not only as a boxer, however, his personality prevents him from turning down job offers with high media impact, therefore, after Mike Tyson‘s challenge to fight him, the reaction was more than predictable.
“Thank you to the great Mike Tyson for the respect and opportunity. This year we are making it happen.”
Paul’s response came because of Mike Tyson’s interest in seeing eye-to-eye with the controversial boxer, after all, both are characters who are not afraid to say and act the way they think, even though they don’t always receive the best feedback from critics.
“Anything is possible but it has got to happen this year,” said Tyson disguised as a bee during his interview with Jimmy Kimmel.

With just over 20 million followers on YouTube, Paul was flattered by the former heavyweight champion‘s deference to him.
“Even if he is fighting fighters that aren’t meant to be good enough, they should still be beating him but they can’t. He is beating people that he shouldn’t really be beating so you have to give him credit.
Tyson shows respect for Jake Paul
It’s really hard for Iron Mike to be good to someone he wants to fight, however, miracles happen all of a sudden and it may be related to the fact that Tyson knows what it’s like to be in the eye of the storm because in his career, both in and out of the ring he has been involved in controversies like biting Evander Holyfield’s ear or even being jailed.
“The champions of the world don’t have that many people following him so what he is doing for boxing is sensational,” Tyson said. “That could be really interesting. He’s skilled enough, I’m going to give it to him, he’s skilled enough because he keeps winning.”
