JAKE PAUL’S sparring partner has ruled out a fight between the YouTuber star and Mike Tyson.

Both Paul and Tyson confirmed their interest in facing each other despite their 30-YEAR age difference.

But Anthony Taylor, a former sparring partner of Paul’s, warned the boxing stars are too friendly with each other to fight.

Taylor, 33, told MyBettingSites: “I really don’t see Jake Paul and Mike Tyson fighting just because they’re very good friends.

“They have too much mutual respect between them to be involved in having a fight.

“Maybe I’m missing something, maybe they are going to fight, but I just don’t really see Mike going in there any time soon with Jake, I would be surprised.”

Tyson, 55, had a shock comeback fight in 2020, drawing over eight-rounds against fellow boxing icon Roy Jones Jr, 53.

But Iron Mike later lost interest in a second fight to avoid hangers-on looking to profit from him.

That was until YouTuber-turned boxer Paul called out the youngest heavyweight champion in history.

The celebrity prizefighter is only 5-0 himself, most recently knocking out Tyron Woodley, 40, in December after beating him on points before.

It added to KOs over gamer ‘AnEsonGib’, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, and retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37.

Paul, 25, is set to return on August 13 for his sixth professional bout having not yet faced a recognised boxer.

But the American audaciously claimed he would beat Canelo Alvarez, 31, in just three years after the Mexican lost to Dmitry Bivol, 31.

And Taylor responded: “I think Jake Paul and Canelo will happen, I don’t think it’s just hype.

“I mean, we’re talking about Jake in three years from now of course, not right now.

“Jake is good, but imagine how much better he’ll get in three years from today.

“He’s only going to get better. He’s only going forward.
