The pros are reacting to the Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson fight announcement.

Jake Paul and Mike Tyson

It was earlier today that Jake Paul took to ‘X‘ announcing the ‘biggest fight of the 21st century’:

“Promotion promotion promotion if I’m being honest it don’t need that.. The biggest fight of the 21st century, in the biggest NFL stadium in the US, broadcast live, on the biggest streaming platform in the world…that’s the MVP way. Whether you’re tuning in on Netflix or showing out in person, whether you’re team Paul or team Tyson, or whether you’re a lifelong boxing fan or watching your first fight, you’re not going to want to miss this event. I could not be more excited to make this amazing fight available to all Netflix subscribers alongside the hardest hitter of all time, Mike Tyson, on Saturday, July 20th. My sights are set on becoming a world champion, and now I have a chance to prove myself against the greatest heavyweight champion of the world, the baddest man on the planet and the most dangerous boxer of all time. Time to put Iron Mike to sleep.”

The boxing match will take place live on Netflix on Saturday, July 20th of this year at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Several fighters have weighed in on social media concerning Jake Paul’s announcement, a portion of which can be seen below:

Matt ‘The Steamrolla’ Frevola:

“Hate him or love him, you gotta respect @jakepaul as a business man. Single handedly changed the landscape of boxing in many ways.”

Dillon ‘El Jefe’ Danis:

“You’re fighting someone who was born in 1966. Have some shame.”

Joe Joe Giannetti:

“Why not just fight..i don’t know…an active boxer under the age of 30?”

Slim ‘The Hitman’ Albaher:

“Naaa Jake Paul you wild for this.”

Kevin ‘The Motown Phenom’ Lee:

“Tyson is 57 years old.”

Billy Quarantillo:

“What a strange time we live in…”

KSI:

“50+ years old. No one wanted this…So sad to see man…”

Alan ‘Brahma’ Jouban:

“What world are we living in?! Jake always talks about helping UFC fighter pay and making boxing great again. But then just always looks to exploit the older fighters for his gain. There’s no respect anymore for lines not to be crossed.”

Michael ‘The Count’ Bisping:

“You should be ashamed of yourself. And the biggest joke is you don’t even slightly realize why.”

Jake Paul, at 27, is sporting 9 wins (6 by KO) and 1 loss in the ring. ‘The Problem Child’ most recently fought and defeated Ryan Bourland in Round 1 last weekend (see that here).

Mike Tyson, at 57, is regarded as one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time with 50 wins (44 by KO) and 6 losses in the ring.

What do you make of the news that Paul will be facing off with Tyson in the summer of 2024?
