Mike Tyson Sends Terrifying Six-Word Message to Jake Paul After Posting New Workout Footage

Mike Tyson Sends Terrifying Six-Word Message to Jake Paul After Posting New Workout Footage

Tyson is preparing to face Paul on July 20.

Mike Tyson has sent another stern warning to Jake Paul after posting new footage from his training camp ahead of their fight.

Tyson, 57, will return to the ring to face Paul, 27, on July 20 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, in what will be the main event of a card that will stream on Netflix.

While it was initially expected to be an exhibition, an announcement earlier this month confirmed the heavyweight bout would be judged under professional rules.

The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations’ decision to sanction the fight is controversial, given the age difference between the two fighters.

Tyson insists he will be in top physical condition for the fight, calling critics of the fight “jealous” of him and Paul.

He posted numerous clips from his training camp before the fight in an attempt to convince his doubters that he is capable of taking on “the problem child” in eight two-minute rounds.

Tyson took to X on Wednesday to post new footage of himself hitting the pads with fierce power, alongside the caption: “Ready or not, here I come.”

Tyson fans were quick to comment on the video, showing their support for the former undisputed heavyweight champion.

“He’s not ready, Big Mike,” one fan wrote.

Another added: “57 years and the power of that punch seems unreal!”

However, other boxing fans were more skeptical of the footage.

“There’s a reason this is only 6 seconds long,” one fan posted.

Another added: “Better to have it in 3 turns or less.” »

Former UFC champion Michael Bisping recently criticized Paul for agreeing to fight a much older man.

“If Jake Paul loses, look, it’s Mike Tyson, but still, come on,” Bisping said on his Believe You Me podcast.

“He’s 58, but stop (if you lose), don’t ever show your face again. Then if Jake Paul knocks out a 58-year-old man, that’s called elder abuse. You can’t win here. Except a lot of money.

“It’s only two minutes long, but if you’ve never boxed or fought, you underestimate how long two minutes can be.

“Mike Tyson, yes, he is 58 years old and the rounds only last two minutes, I think he will still be tired after three rounds.

“That said, Jake Paul leaves extremely massive openings and he’s never fought anyone like Mike Tyson. He went the distance with Nate Diaz, he beat Nate Diaz and I’m not picking on him because “he’s great, a cult icon.”

Tyson and Paul are set to break a long-standing boxing record when they finally meet in the ring.

This 31-year age gap will be the largest in professional boxing history, surpassing the 24-year age gap between 49-year-old Archie Moore and 25-year-old Mike DiBiase when they fought in 1963.
