Mike Tyson insists Logan Paul is ‘stupid enough’ to fight Badou Jack… but former world twoweight champion taunts YouTuber, claims he ‘don’t have the balls’ to go in the ring with him
- Mike Tyson believes Logan Paul would be willing to fight Badou Jack
- But the 37-year-old is less convinced that the YouTuber would agree
- Paul won the entire game against Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition match in June
- Jack fought on the undercard that night and is eager to be the next opponent
Mike Tyson has maintained that Logan Paul could be persuaded to fight Badou Jack, even if the former two-weight world champion is less convinced himself.
YouTuber Paul is coming off the back of his exhibition fight with Floyd Mayweather where he defied all odds and went the full eight rounds with the undefeated legend.
Jack, who previously won world titles at super-middleweight and light-heavyweight, fought on that undercard in June, beating Dervin Colina in the fourth round.

And Tyson, impressed by Paul’s efforts in that demonstration match, is eager to see how the YouTuber would fare in the ring with Jack.
“I’m trying to get Logan Paul to fight Badou Jack. I want to see what he says about that,” Tyson said.
“He’s stupid enough to do it. That would be so nice if that could be.
“He did really well in the fight with Floyd, so it’s possible he can go with you for a few rounds, some exciting rounds.”

Unsurprisingly, given the likely purses involved, Jack expressed a desire to be Paul’s next opponent should the 26-year-old decide to return to the ring for another fight.
However, the 37-year-old is not confident that Paul would share his enthusiasm and believes the fight is unlikely to take place.
“I’ll fight him,” Jack said. ‘But do you think he would want to fight me?
“I don’t think he has the balls to fight me. I don’t think he’s stupid enough.’
