Predictions for Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson Fight

Sporting News: Tyson by Decision

David Fletcher notes, “Due to the lack of experience of Paul’s opponents and the fear of his power, no one has dared to bring the fight to Paul. Tyson is incredibly aggressive and is highly likely to do so in multiple rounds. Even if he doesn’t get the knockout, forcing Paul into retreat once he gets a taste of Tyson’s power is quite possible.”

Tyson Fury: Tyson by Knockout

Speaking on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, Fury chose Tyson, saying, “If Mike Tyson hits anybody, I don’t care if he’s 90, he’s going to knock them out cold. It’s ‘Iron Mike Tyson.’ He’s the baddest man on the planet… Paul’s obviously very experienced now, but I have to back Mike Tyson. I’m named after the legend and I’ll back him as he always backs me.”

Anthony Joshua: Paul Wins

On “The Jonathan Ross Show,” Joshua expressed concern about Tyson’s age, saying, “The only thing I’m worried about is father time. That’s one thing that’s never been beaten and Tyson, he’s older now. I pray that he comes out healthy but I think Jake Paul wins because of youth. That’s the only thing, because of the youth.”
