Mike Tyson fears Floyd Mayweather will “kill” Logan Paul when the boxing great takes on the YouTube novice in an exhibition on Sunday night.
Mayweather, 44, returns to the ring this weekend for the first time since New Year’s Eve 2018 to take on internet star Paul, 26, in a controversial eight-round bout in Miami.
Paul once fought professionally – losing to fellow YouTube star KSI – but remains convinced he will be upset given his 30-pound advantage.

However, Iron Mike has expressed concern for the American, insisting that Mayweather will “have so much fun winning this money” when the pair meet in Miami.
“Floyd is going to kill this man, man,” Tyson told Reuters via The mirror. Floyd stays in the gym, he’s never out of shape. He’s going to have so much fun winning this money.”
Mayweather says he will not return to professional boxing and insists his fight with Paul is “entertainment”. The competition has no ringside judges, although knockouts are allowed.

And the 44-year-old says he doesn’t have to be top notch to beat his rival.
“I don’t have to use my A-game, my B-game, my C-game. I can use my Z game,” Mayweather said at the Miami event. “You don’t even have to hit him hard. The result will be the same.’
Paul and younger brother Jake, 24, have made strides in becoming boxers, with the latter recently beating retired UFC fighter Ben Askren and set to take on former champion Tyron Woodley this summer.

Mayweather says he will expose Logan Paul’s limited net worth on Sunday, while he could meet Jake Paul in the future.
“I take my hat off to these guys,” Mayweather said. “They did a good job of fooling the public that they are real fighters. Man, you’ll find out on Sunday.’
Tyson returned to the ring last year in a demonstration fight against Roy Jones Jr. As with Sunday’s fight, no official winner was named after the fight.
