Mike Tyson has made his prediction for tonight’s big fight between Jake Paul and Tyron Woodley.
Paul, the YouTube star turned boxer, is set to take on Woodley, a 39-year-old former MMA champion. This is likely to be Paul’s toughest bout yet.
ESPN.com had more on the fight:
Paul (3-0) is facing the toughest test of his burgeoning boxing career. In his last bout, he knocked out former UFC fighter, MMA champion and Olympic wrestler Ben Askren in the first round. Last November, the 24-year-old Cleveland-area native stopped former NBA veteran Nate Robinson via KO in the second round.
Paul has said he vows to be the biggest name in boxing, though he is a polarizing figure, headlining big-money events with a fraction of the experience of his boxing peers. He has a large following with the younger demographic, who have followed him since he was 17 years old on Vine, then YouTube and now TikTok. He also starred on the Disney Channel show “Bizaardvark.”
Tyson is backing Paul ahead of Sunday night’s fight.
“He hasn’t lost yet,” Tyson added, who added that it will be a “tough fight.”
Paul and Woodley are set to fight on Sunday evening.
