We all knew that neither Paul brother was done with their dalliances in the world of combat sports. They’re making too much money and having too much money to call it a day just yet.

And it seems as though big brother Logan has his next match in the works. Someone called Keem, who has 2.8 million follows on Twitter for some reason, tweeted out an announcement that Paul would face Mike Tyson in February 2022.

Upon further inspection it seems Keem runs a YouTube channel called DramaAlert that follows the world of social media influencers.

Paul’s most recent appearance in a boxing ring was this summer when he partnered with Floyd Mayweather Jr. on a lucrative sparring session that ended with no winner or loser. Since then Paul has teased a potential match with UFC legend Anderson Silva.

Silva’s camp also talked up the possibility of a fight with Paul. However, it seems ‘The Spider’ will have to take a backseat to Tyson on this one. It was believed that Silva was hoping for a bout with Paul under pro boxing rules.

It’s not known for sure, but it seems very likely that Paul vs. Tyson would be contested under exhibition rules. Tyson’s last bout was an exhibition against Roy Jones Jr. last year. That event, promoted by Triller Fight Club, saw Jake Paul defeat Nate Robinson in the co-main. That win, over a former NBA player, launched Paul to the very top of the emerging celebrity fighting ladder.

Paul, having beaten former UFC champion Tyron Woodley last time out, is expected to face Tommy Fury next. Fury is the younger brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, as well as a reality TV star.
