It looks like Mike Tyson vs. Jake Paul may actually go down after all.

Last week, Tyson expressed interest in a fight with Paul while speaking to Joe Rogan on his podcast.

“Let’s do it, Jakey, God, wouldn’t that be cool?”

Paul spoke with TalkSport ahead of the Amanda Serrano-Katie Taylor fight and revealed that he’s currently in talks to fight Tyson in August.

“I want to challenge myself and increase the level of my opposition and get the biggest name possible because I’m tired of carrying all the pay-per-view promotion myself. It gets annoying. Hopefully we have a dance partner who brings the skills and following to the table.

“Mike Tyson is the biggest name possible. For sure that’s number one on my list. He just called me out on Joe Rogan’s podcast and said ‘let’s do it.’ I think that breaks so many records. It would be fun, it would be legendary and it would be crazy for me to share the ring with such an iconic legend.

“Someone that I look up to. It would be weird fighting him but at the same time, it would be awesome. Yes, there is contact and conversations.”

Paul also went on to name Anderson Silva as a potential opponent for his August return. Despite the huge age difference, a Tyson vs. Paul would do amazing PPV numbers.
