Mike Tyson Claps Back at Critics: “Billions of Views Speak Volumes”

"A fight that defies age and expectations."

Unexpected Match-Up Announced

In a turn of events that few could have anticipated, Mike Tyson is set to face the celebrity boxer Jake Paul in 2024. Despite sounding like an elaborate April Fool’s joke, the fight is scheduled for this summer and will be broadcast worldwide via Netflix, allowing millions of viewers to watch the event at no extra cost.

Age Gap Sparks Controversy

The significant age difference between the two competitors has sparked a wave of negative reactions from fans. Tyson, currently 57, will have turned 58 by the time they face off on July 20th, while Paul is 27 and considered to be in the prime of his career.



Tyson’s Take on the Fight

During his prime, Mike Tyson was known as the most fearsome boxer on the planet. Many fans are questioning whether he has what it takes to defeat “The Problem Child” at his age. In a recent interview, Tyson defended the decision for the fight. “I’m 58,” he stated to Reuters. “So what? I get billions of views just by talking about fighting. It’s ridiculous… ‘In your prime, you couldn’t sell a million tickets,’ I tell them. You couldn’t sell out an arena. Who at 58 can sell out an 80,000 seat arena?”

Why Paul Chose Tyson

Tyson suggests that Paul’s decision to fight him, instead of another boxer, is because only Tyson could draw such a large audience. “Why do you think he wants to fight me and not someone else? If he fought them, only people who already like him would come. The others, their parents wouldn’t even show up to watch them. That’s just facts. They’re too boring for their kids to watch, like watching grass grow.”
