Former UFC title challenger Colby Covington is sounding off on the ‘dangerous’ Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson boxing match.


It will be the legendary ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson (50-6) vs. Jake Paul (9-1) on Saturday, July 20th at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The event will stream live on Netflix.

Colby Covington speaking on the ‘SOSCAST’ with Adam Sosnick, share his thoughts on the upcoming bout:

“I don’t like it at all. Mike still looks like a superhuman for (57), but he’s still (57) years old. He shouldn’t be fighting anymore. I don’t think it’s safe. I think it’s dangerous at that age. Your heart might explode. He gets hit in the head, he might have a brain bleed. … I hope Mike Tyson makes it through injury-free and doesn’t get hurt.”

Continuing, Covington shared:

“I don’t like the fight. Jake is in his mid-20s. He’s doing every chemical known to man. He’s literally a lab project. They’re just juicing him up, him and his brother. Everybody knows that. The machine is behind him, juicing him up, putting every chemical known to man. So, I think it’s going to end bad.”

It should be noted that Colby Covington is no stranger to controversy and pointing fingers at various fighters he claims are using drugs such as Jon Jones, Kamaru Usman, Conor McGregor and Matt Brown to name a few. Apparently, Jake Paul has made the list as ‘doing every chemical known to man’.

Concluding, ‘Chaos’ made his prediction for the outcome of the boxing match (h/t MMAJunkie):

“I think Jake is going to probably knock him out within the first two minutes. If he doesn’t, it’ll be because he’s carrying him and he’s trying to make the freak show look like it’s a competitive fight.”

“I hate the fight. I think it takes away from Mike Tyson’s legacy when a guy like this comes in and beats him, a YouTuber comes in and beats the ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ and the most feared man.”

As for Colby Covington (17-4 MMA), he last fought and was defeated by welterweight champion Leon Edwards (22-3 MMA) this past December at UFC 296. The 36-year-olds next fight is yet to be announced by the promotion.

Do you agree with Covington that the Paul vs. Tyson match is ‘dangerous’? Any predictions?
