The legendary heavyweight king made his ring return after retirement in a tussle with Roy Jones Jr, but that doesn’t mean he’s done yet. Tyson has recently noticed the Pauls and has previously spoken with a fondness for the brothers, who are looking to continue their separate careers in the sport.
The Champion had a lot to say on his HotBoxin’ podcast when rapper Freddie Gibbs asked if he would fight the Paul brothers, “Hell yeah,” he said, claiming he would do it if the money was right, reports MMAMania.
“Well, that’s the money fight,” said Tyson. “Those are the fights that make the money. Those guys have 75 million people watching them.”

“Yeah. Hell yeah,” Tyson said. When Gibbs questioned if Paul would accept it, Tyson laughed. “They would. That would make a lot of money… A hundred million dollars, they do anything, they don’t care about being beaten up for a hundred million dollars.”

‘Iron Mike’ presumably took notice of this Summers lucrative Miami showdown between Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul, which got a lot of attention and made both parties a fortune. Paul held his ground in the fight, but no winner was declared.
When Mayweather spoke about fighting Paul over another boxer, he quipped, “I can fight a fighter right now and I can guarantee myself $35million. I can eventually probably make $50million for just a regular fight,” but then expressed he could make substantially more with an exhibition fight, “Or me and Logan Paul can go out, entertain, have fun and make nine figures $100million or more.”
