Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson 

Saturday, July 20, 2024 – 09:00 PM ET at AT&T Stadium

In 2020, on the undercard of Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr., The Problem Child stunned the boxing world by knocking out former NBA star Nate Robinson. At that time, there was a distinct lack of precedent for a social media sensation with millions of followers becoming full-time boxers, but Paul stuck it out, and four years on, “The Problem Child” continues to give us problems.

Some still fault social media stars who have become boxers, but no one can deny the attention and pay-per-view sales for Paul’s fights.

Until this point, his battle last year with Tommy Fury was the most respectable and largest in his career. That’s due to the fact that Paul is facing off against Mike Tyson, a former world heavyweight champion and a man widely considered to be one of the greatest fighters of all time.

Mike Tyson

When Tyson was at the top of his game, he was a formidable heavyweight fighter and a global icon of dread. However, he is almost 60 years old, Paul’s senior, and hasn’t fought professionally since 2005. Whether this battle is a professional bout or just an exhibition is anybody’s guess, but the aforementioned factors have placed ‘Iron’ Mike as the betting underdog.

That said, for a fighter such as Mike Tyson, who will be two years shy of 60, a 42% implied probability isn’t too bad. The training footage of Tyson will undoubtedly give hope to his supporters and Paul’s haters, but are we grasping onto a time in the past that no longer exists?

Mike Tyson ML Odds: (+130) at Bet365

Jake Paul

Paul is taller than Tyson. He is 6 feet and 1 inch tall, and his arm span is 76 inches. Tyson’s height is 5 feet 10 inches and his arm span is 71 inches.

This may not be a challenge for Tyson, though, since almost all of his adversaries during his heyday were taller than him, with the exception of one. He had a remarkable record of 56 wins and just six losses.

Tyson’s age, however, is his primary problem heading into this contest and is likely the main factor driving the betting odds to side with Paul.
