Mike Tyson is a legendary boxer. He didn't earn the nickname of "the baddest man on the planet" for nothing. The former undisputed world heavyweight champion reigned for three years from 1987 to 1990 and is generally considered a generational talent. Naturally, Tyson has since retired from boxing due to old age. But, Tyson did fight against the former four-time world champion, Roy Jones Jr., last year.
After getting back in the ring following years of hiatus, it appears that Tyson is gearing up for his next bout and recent rumors suggest that Logan Paul will be his opponent.
Is Logan Paul vs Mike Tyson going to happen?
A lot of weird things have happened to the world of boxing lately. For example, Floyd Mayweather Jr., who many consider one of the greatest boxers of all time, recently came out of retirement to fight against Logan Paul in an exhibition match. Now, it is believed that Logan is going to go up against another legend in Tyson next.
Granted, this isn't the first time that talks of a Tyson vs Paul fight have been floated. Ever since Paul confirmed that he's already finalizing his next fight, audiences have been busy speculating about his next opponent. Some are saying that Paul's next fight is against Tyson. Keemstar's recent tweet helped fuel the rumors as well. The Drama Alert host claimed on Twitter that his source has confirmed that the elder Paul brother's next fight is up against Iron Mike himself on February 2022.

Unlike other former and current professional boxers, Tyson doesn't appear to hold any animosity against the Paul brothers. One might even say that he's good friends with Jake and Logan. He's even been quoted as saying that the brothers are "good for the sport". This would suggest that he's very open to squaring up against either Logan or Jake.
On the off chance that the Paul vs Tyson fight would happen, Logan will find himself in rare company. He's one of the few (if not the only one) to have ever had the privilege to box against both Iron Mike and Money Mayweather.
In the meantime, fans can follow the other Paul brother, Jake. Jake recently beat Tyron Woodley to continue his undefeated run as a professional boxer. Since then, he's been busy trying to get Conor McGregor to fight him. Meanwhile, Mayweather was reportedly interested in fighting against the younger Paul brother after Jake sent disrespectful DMs to the legendary boxer's girlfriend.
