Logan Paul Mocked for Claiming He Could Beat Mike Tyson

Logan Paul sharing the ring with Mike Tyson? Stranger things have happened.

However, the YouTuber turned boxer is today being mocked after he claimed he could beat the legendary Tyson in a boxing match.

Fresh from his bout with Floyd Mayweather, the controversial internet star has set his sights on another exhibition match—but boxing fans found the thought of the 26-year-old beating one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time simply laughable.

"Bro, he's old, old!" Paul said of 54-year-old Tyson during an episode of his podcast "Impaulsive" on June 10.

"Someone mentioned Mike Tyson, like how funny is it? One great at a time. Or is it like you can only fight one?

"My lawyer mentioned it and he was like: 'No, Tyson will rip your head off, you don't stand a chance.'

"I'm like: 'Bro, I literally just went through all of this, you can't tell me I can't beat Mike Tyson.'"

His brother, Jake Paul, then added: "You did better than Conor McGregor against Floyd Mayweather."

Mayweather defeated McGregor by TKO in Round 10 in 2017. Earlier this month, Mayweather and Paul went eight rounds in Miami with no winner declared.

Logan's confidence about his ability to possibly beat Tyson resulted in widespread mockery on Twitter, as boxing fans shared endless jokes and memes about the champion boxer knocking out the YouTuber.

"The Mike Tyson-Logan Paul fight would look something like this," one tweet reads along with a clip of the Hulk destroying some poor soul.

While film producer Tariq Nasheed joked: "YouTube troll Logan Paul is now claiming he believes he can beat Mike Tyson. After seeing the way Floyd Mayweather owned him, Logan Paul couldn't beat Cicely Tyson."

Another added: "Man logan paul really has a death wish, I can't see Mike Tyson holding back for him like Mayweather did and Mike can do this to him and Logan would be out cold."

While another poked fun at Paul's disappointing match with Mayweather, tweeting: "This just in Logan Paul plans to hug Mike Tyson and make millions."

Tyson fought in his first fight in 15 years in November, an exhibition match against Roy Jones Jr.

He famously bit off part of rival Evander Holyfield's ear and also spent about three years in prison for rape.
