At their recent press conference, Jake Paul and Tommy Fury engaged in trash talk, ‘The Problem Child’ mentioned former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson’s name and suggested that Tyson could beat Fury in a fight. However, Tyson did not want to get involved and jokingly laughed it off. It appears that Tyson is not interested in being part of the Paul-Fury hype and is choosing to stay out of the conversation.
Throughout the presser, there was a heated exchange of words between Tommy Fury and Jake Paul as they tried to generate excitement for their upcoming fight. Fury accused Paul of only fighting washed-up and retired boxers, prompting Paul to respond with a sharp remark. He suggested that even at 58 years old, ‘Iron Mike’ could still beat Fury in a fight.
Despite the provocative comments made by Paul, Mike Tyson chose not to get involved in the trash talk.
