Mike Tyson “I started Jake off and I’m gonna finish him”

Mike Tyson spoke at MVP Promotions press conference on his upcoming Heavyweight contest against Jake Paul. Tyson will return to the ring professionally to compete against Paul this Summer on Netflix. Here is what Iron Mike had to say.

On whether the fight is scripted: I started Jake off and I’m gonna finish him.  

On risking serious injury against a powerful 27-year-old who is in his prime: I don’t know if he’s in his prime. He’s fat. He should be lean and mean and he’s fat and funky. I saw him with his shirt off though and he’s fat.

On knocking out Paul early: He’s not going to win. He can’t even knock out Nate D [Nate Diaz] who is like 40 pounds. How’s he going to knock me out? Who’s the other guy? Anderson Silva…. He didn’t knock out Tommy Fury. He didn’t knock those little guys out, [how’s he going to] knock me out?… Who did he knock out? Little children… [he] never knocked out a real man. 

On whether Jake will be a world champion boxer someday: Yes, he did improve a lot, but he is not going to have a good night when he fights me on July 20th.
