Tyson said he will end him . I think it’s going to be another hard sparring. They seem to be buddies still.
I think Jake likely wins, just on size & young muscle.
If they are pals, I can see hard sparring between 2 skilled capitalists.
If Tyson is genuine, this is must-see TV;
this is a fight even at 58 yo.

I do understand Tyson going for the payday, but man he's old as fuck in terms of fighting.
I still hope he makes Jake eat a month or two through a straw.

So is this an "exhibition" match with 1000 rules or straight up boxing rules?
it will be exhibition

i hope jake paul does some ignorant shit that lights that fire inside of iron mike . that being said mike only has a chance in the first few rounds then jake will out cardio him and run him in to the ground. it is basically young ,fit ,currently active ,tall and rangey boxer vs savage powerhouse that is 100 years old and has boxed 1 time in the last 20 years . i would love to see mike peekaboo a body, body ,head, uppercut combo and end jake paul but i aint holding my breath

How big is Jake? Tyson's career was 220-230lbs. I'd imagine he is somewhere in that range these days as well. Jake has been fighting guys smaller than him for his short career, like Anderson (187lb), Tyron (191lb), Tommy Fury (185lb), Askren (191lbs), but I know he is cutting. Tyson never had to cut weight. Maybe Jake walks around in the 230lb ballpark?
Jake is going to be faster and he has youth on his side by 30 years. I don't see this going well for Tyson, but I hope I'm wrong.

I just looked up Tyson's weight vs. Jones Jr. and it was 220. Apparently Paul's last fight was at 199. They are probably the same weight.

I am sad/angry Tyson is taking this fight. I hope Jake completely flatlines him in the first round. What a joke. People are so dumb today, that if Jake wins they will say he is a better boxer than Tyson.

Dude, what in the holy fuck are you talking about.
There's like 3 people on the earth that would entertain such a stupid proposition.
I'm not sure where the other 2 are.

Not a fan of this fight

Tyson's mind isn't that of a young hungry fighter, Jake is 30 years younger

I can see it being a planned decision like most of the Paul fights, a payday if you will

This is just a gimmick that Jake will use to pump up his cred.

No way Tyson takes this to the limit.

I'm not buying it
Money grab and clicks
Unspoken agreement on outcome

My thinking on this is that it's all about Tyson's fitness. If his legs can still move him around real well he should get inside on Jake. He should be able to beat Jake up. This will take conditioning. He still has his power.

Either way it should be fun to watch. Both guys will come in fit and trying to win. Even if Tyson wins, Paul can still benefit if he puts on a great showing.

Speaking to reporter Radio Rahim, Chisora said: “I know for a fact they are using 18oz gloves and head guards. So we’re watching a sparring match. It’s a f***ing joke. You think I’m paying to watch that?”
