Mike Tyson reveals he was impressed by Logan Paul against Floyd Mayweather – and wants to see him against Badou Jack
MIKE TYSON was genuinely impressed by how Logan Paul stood up to the test of facing Floyd Mayweather.
And now Iron Mike wants to see him take on an active pro fighter – namely Badou Jack.
Paul, 26, went the full distance with Mayweather in their exhibition bout on Sunday night.
Although the five-weight world champ bossed the majority of the fight, Paul gave a good account of himself.
So much so that one of the greatest boxers of all time reckons he is ready for his next serious challenge.
Tyson told Zab Judah on an IG Live: "I'm trying to get Logan Paul to fight Badou Jack.
"I wanna see what he says about that."
Judah agreed Paul vs Jack would make interesting viewing.
He replied: "Yeah, that's a real fight now.
"He fights Badou Jack, Logan Paul is gonna be in a big fight.

"That's a whole different fight. You fight that guy, Badou is gonna give you a fight. Badou coming to fight!"
Paul was fighting for just the third time with his two previous dust-ups against fellow YouTuber KSI – the second as a professional contest.
Jack, however, is a two-weight world champion.
The Swedish veteran, 37, held the WBC super-middleweight crown from 2014 to 2017 and then then WBA light-heavyweight title in 2017.
The Ripper has a 24-3-3 record from his 30 pro fights, including 14 knockout wins – most recently against Dervin Colina last weekend – so would certainly pose an almighty threat to the inexperienced Paul.
