MIKE TYSON awkwardly predicted Floyd Mayweather will ‘beat Logan Paul’s f***ing ass’ despite sitting right next to the YouTuber.
Money is coming out of retirement in February to fight in what he hopes will be the richest fight of all time.
Mayweather retired as the undisputed box office king, selling 29million PPVs during his iconic 50-0 career.
His 2015 win over Manny Pacquiao smashed the record with 4.6m sold, with his fight against UFC star Conor McGregor two years later coming in at 4.4m.
Both made close to £700m in revenue – but Solomon Engel, Founder and CEO of Fanmio, who are bringing Mayweather out of retirement, has already told SunSport they expect to topple those numbers.
Paul, 25, made his professional debut with a defeat to fellow social media star KSI in November 2019.
But that has not stopped him from signing up to take on arguably boxing’s best ever.
He might think he stands a chance against Mayweather in what is likely to be an exhibition fight comprising six three-minute rounds.
But former heavyweight champion Tyson, who recently made his own impressive comeback against Roy Jones Jr, has no doubt Paul will end up badly beaten.
And the Baddest Man on the Planet did not hold back when he was asked for his prediction during an interview alongside Paul.
When the anchor asked Tyson about the Mayweather vs Paul fight, he declared: “Floyd’s gonna beat his f***ing ass.”
That was met with huge laughter from the audience, but he did add: “There’s nothing good, he’s gonna fight back though, he’ll fight back.”
Paul shared the clip on his Twitter account, captioning the snippet with: “Almost bit his ear off for this @miketyson.”
