Mike Tyson vs Logan Paul tale of the tape: How fighters compare ahead of bizarre planned exhibition fight

MIKE TYSON looks set to fight YouTuber Logan Paul next in one of the most surreal boxing fights of all time.

Tyson is one of the sport’s true legends, and was one of the most ferocious punchers ever.

That saw him secure 44KOs from his 50 wins as a pro, suffering six defeats.

Logan, older brother of fellow social media star-turned boxer Jake, has had just ONE pro fight.

And that was a defeat.

The American fell to a split decision loss to Brit YouTuber KSI – real name Olajide William Olatunji in November 2019.

That was a rematch to their amateur scrap that ended in a majority draw.

Paul, meanwhile, managed to survive eight rounds against one of the greatest in Floyd Mayweather in June this year.

But now the 26-year-old will be fighting someone his own size – Paul weighed in 2st 7lb heavier than The Money but was given a bit of a boxing lesson.

Tyson, 55, has been rumoured to be facing former nemesis Evander Holyfield or Lennox Lewis.

But according to Youtuber Keemstar – real name Daniel Keem – Tyson will fight Paul next.

Keemstar tweeted: “Logan Paul vs Mike Tyson, Feb 2022, sources tell DramaAlert.”

Tyson is eager to fight once again and has been training hard to prepare for his next opponent.

He was hopeful of fighting again in September but has been made to wait until next year.

In an exclusive interview with SunSport Tyson said: “I am going to have a return fight in February and we are pretty sceptical about the opponent, but it will be a really stimulating opponent.”
