Mike Tyson has an opponent in mind for Logan Paul’s next boxing fight.
Paul, who’s 0-1 as a pro boxer, had an exhibition bout against Floyd Mayweather on Sunday in Miami and held his own. He went all eight rounds and landed some solid shots. After the event, many wondered who would be next for the YouTube star and according to Tyson, he likes the idea of Paul facing Badou Jack.
“I’m trying to get Logan Paul to fight Badou Jack. I wanna see what he says about that,” Tyson told former champion Zab Judah during an Instagram Live interview (via BoxingScene).
Judah also agreed with that as he says that is a legitimate fight and one that makes some sense.
“Yeah, that’s a real fight now. He fights Badou Jack, Logan Paul is gonna be in a big fight,” Judah said. “That’s a whole different fight. You fight that guy, Badou is gonna give you a fight. Badou coming to fight.”
Although Tyson wants that fight, it’s unlikely that will be next as Jack is around the same size as Paul and is a lot better than him. Yet, if Paul does take the fight and win, it would be hard to deny him as a legit boxer. As well, there wouldn’t be a ton of money in it as opposed to boxing another YouTuber or celebrity. However, Paul has been adamant to the fact he is getting good at boxing and wants to continue stepping into the ring.
