Jake Paul may have other plans now

Paul, on the other hand, has big plans of his own, having agreed to fight boxing legend Mike Tyson before the end of the year. On Jimmy Kimmel, Tyson threw down the gauntlet and said there could be a fight, but only by the end of 2022.

Paul stated: “Thank you to the great Mike Tyson for the respect and the opportunity. This year we are making it happen.” Throughout Paul’s five-fight professional career, which began when he defeated YouTuber AnEson Gib Tyson has been his biggest supporter.

Then, the YouTube star fought on the Tyson exhibition card against Roy Jones Jr.which gave him an important platform to launch his career outside of the ring.

Paul has already announced that he will return to the ring on August 6, but he has yet to name an opponent, and it is rumored that Tommy Fury and the UFC legend Anderson Silva are in the mix.
