The former UFC champion Michael Bisping recently made some bold claims on YouTuber-turned-pro-boxer Jake Paul about his possible fight against boxing legend Mike Tyson.

Tyson and Paul’s respective teams are thrashing out terms for a headline pay-per-view event later this year, reports the Sun Online. Organisers believe a clash between the pair could generate a staggering £36million in the fight capital of Las Vegas, with one source insisting that it will be on the cards if ‘all goes to plan’ despite Tyson recently denying talks with the YouTuber’s camp.
However, Bisping claimed that Paul will be unable to stage an exhibition with the boxing legend in Sin City because the Nevada State Athletic Commission will refuse to sanction it.
The ex-MMA star said the following on his YouTube channel:
“The [Paul] fight with Mike Tyson, there’s a good chance that won’t get licensed either,’When Mike Tyson came back and fought Roy Jones Jr, I believe that was in Florida because they couldn’t get licensed in Las Vegas.

According to Mike Tyson, the answer to that is no. I’d like to see [Paul] fight Tommy Fury, similar size, age and experience.”
Tyson had made his shocking return to the ring 15 years after retiring for an exhibition against Jones in November 2020, which the judges scored a draw despite his dominance on the night.
