Heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson has got absolutely jacked since coming out of retirement last year to participate in a series of charity matches. And in a recent episode of his webseries Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson, he and rapper Freddie Gibbs discuss who would make a worthy opponent in the current boxing landscape.

Tyson tells Gibbs that that he absolutely wants to fight again, and that he'd love to go up against Tyson Fury (the feeling is mutual, according to an interview Fury gave in 2020), but is more dismissive of Deontay Wilder. From there, the conversation turns to the controversial YouTubers-turned-boxers Logan and Jake Paul.

"I don't think there's too many people that could beat you, period," says Gibbs. "I feel like boxing kind of fell off... I'm sick of seeing all these Jake Paul fights."

Tyson points out that the Pauls' matches are highly lucrative: "That's the money fight," he says. "Those are the fights that make the money, those guys have got 35 million people watching them."

When Gibbs asks him if he'd fight one of the Paul brothers, Tyson's response is simple: "Hell yeah." He adds that "a lot of money" would be involved." Gibbs is skeptical that either would want to fight Tyson, but Tyson disagrees.

"He'd do it," he says. "100 million bucks, they'll do anything."

While it's all just talk at the moment, some kind of match-up might not be out of the question. After all, Logan Paul has already gone on record as saying he thinks he has what it takes to beat Tyson in the ring. And we already know where Gibbs' money will be: as the episode draws to an end, he says he'd love to see Tyson knock one of the brothers out.
