Logan Paul offers Mike Tyson to replace him for the fight with Jake Paul, 'The Problem Child' responds

Jake Paul’s fight against Mike Tyson has been postponed following ‘Iron Mike’s’ recent health scare. Interestingly, Logan Paul has now offered to replace the 57-year-old, prompting a fiery response from ‘The Problem Child’.

Jake Paul was scheduled to fight Tyson on July 20 at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. However, the bout had to be postponed after the former heavyweight champion suffered an ulcer flare-up during a recent flight from Miami to Los Angeles. A new date is expected to be announced on June 7.

Shortly after the news of the postponement broke, the older Paul brother took to X and offered to step in as the replacement and face his younger brother:

“So Mike Tyson’s out? I’ll step in and we can settle this once and for all Jake Paul.”

‘The Problem Child’ welcomed the challenge, adding high stakes to the brother vs. brother matchup:

“Mom doesn’t want me to KO you but f**k it. Loser has to change their last name.”

While both Paul brothers have had boxing bouts before, Jake Paul is more experienced. He holds a record of 9-1 and has won against many ex-UFC stars, namely Nate Diaz, Anderson Silva, Tyron Woodley, and Ben Askren. In his most recent fight, he finished former Golden Gloves champion Ryan Bourland in the opening round.

Meanwhile, Logan holds a combined record of 1-1-2, including his professional and amateur outings. ‘Maverick’s’ most notable performance came in 2021 as he claimed a draw against boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr., who was almost 35 pounds lighter than him on fight night.

He claimed a DQ win in his most recent fight against Dillon Danis at Misfits Boxing: The PRIME Card after the former Bellator fighter tried to put him in a guillotine choke in the final round.
