Mike Tyson sends five-word taunt to Jake Paul as he ramps up training for fight

Tyson will return to the ring for a one-off fight against YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul on July 20 and he delivered a five-word taunt after a recent training session




Mike Tyson has continued to taunt Jake Paul online whilst training hard for their fight in the summer.


Boxing icon ‘Iron Mike’ is gearing up for a comeback fight against YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul on July 20 at the AT&T Stadium in Texas. Tyson, who will be 58 by the time he steps foot in the ring, retired from professional competition almost two decades ago but did fight fellow legend Roy Jones Jr. in a November 2020 exhibition.


Paul has been warned by Tyson that you can’t play fighting as the 57-year-old posted a series of photos and videos to his Snapchat story of him training. “Jake Paul, where you at?” Tyson wrote in a picture of him drinking from a bottle after training, before adding: “Fighting is a sport: if you’re not humble, it’s going to bring humbleness to you.”

Paul extended his professional record to 9-1 earlier this month when he knocked out unknown boxer Ryan Bourland in one round. ‘The Problem Child’ had his third fight on the undercard of Tyson’s exhibition against Jones as he left NBA star Nate Robinson facedown on the canvas with a brutal KO.
