Mike Tyson believes Logan Paul should face former light heavyweight world champion Badou Jack in his next boxing match.
Paul most recently faced Floyd Mayweather on June 6 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.
While the former five-weight world champion was expected to knockout Paul without breaking much of a sweat, the YouTuber stunned fans by surviving the full eight-rounds.
Due to the bout’s unique ruleset, no winner was declared and while some suggested Mayweather wasn’t trying at all and could’ve ended the fight whenever he wanted, others argued Paul had claimed the moral victory.
Since the bout, Paul has been vocal about his desire to box again before the end of the year, and while the Maverick has been calling for another bout against Mayweather, Tyson believes the social media star should face a new opponent.
In a recent episode of his ‘Hotboxin’ podcast, Iron Mike told guest, former world champion Badou Jack, that he should be the next fighter to face Paul in the boxing ring.
While Jack seemed convinced that Paul wouldn’t be interested and claimed the fight would be “easy money”, Tyson told the Ripper he could be in for a difficult fight.
“It’s not gonna be easy," Tyson claimed.
"He’s a fighter! You saw what he did to the greatest fighter that ever lived! That’s why I thought you might give him a good fight.

Jack responded: “I would love to fight him, but I don’t believe he’s got the balls to fight me. I don’t think he’s stupid enough.”
Tyson interrupted Jack and claimed he was certain that Paul “is stupid enough.”
“He is stupid enough to do it. He has confidence. That would be so beautiful if that could happen. He would come right at you.
“He did really well in the Floyd fight, so there’s a chance he could go a couple of rounds with you, but exciting rounds.”
While a clash between Paul and Jack would be interesting, the Maverick has reportedly already lined up his next fight.
According to a leaked Instagram DM uploaded by Conor McGregor’s training partner Dillon Danis, Paul is set to face UFC legend Anderson Silva on September 19 in Dubai.
While MMA fans have already blasted the prospect of a bout between the Spider and Paul, the 46-year-old Silva has previously hinted that he would be interested in a clash against one of the Paul brothers in an interview with MMA Junkie.
