Mike Tyson has told Logan Paul to his face that Floyd Mayweather will “beat his f****** a**” when they meet in an exhibition bout next year.
YouTube sensation Paul has struck a deal to face the all-time boxing great in February 2021, despite suffering a points defeat in his first and only professional bout against KSI last year.
As a result, Mayweather will be expected to win without breaking sweat when they collide in two months’ time.
And during an appearance on Paul’s podcast ‘imPaulsive’, Tyson let the online superstar know he is in for a painful evening against one of the greatest fighters of all time.
The former undisputed heavyweight champion was asked by co-host Mike Maljak for his Mayweather vs Paul prediction, to which he replied: “Floyd’s gonna beat his f****** a**.”
Tyson’s comment sent Paul and his co-hosts into a fit of laughter, before he added: “But it’s gonna be good, he’s gonna fight back though! He’s gonna fight back.”
