Jake Paul makes scandalous claim about Mike Tyson’s power ahead of controversial fight

Jake Paul has sensationally claimed he hits harder than Mike Tyson ahead of their upcoming clash.

“Iron Mike” is widely considered one of the toughest boxers of all time.

During a 56-fight professional career (50-6) dating back to 1985, Tyson ended 44 of his 50 victories at the distance, including 24 in the first round.

As he prepares to return to the ring against Paul on July 20 at the ripe old age of 58, most boxing experts believe Tyson’s best chance of victory is by knockout, given that power is the last thing to do.

However, Paul doesn’t seem particularly concerned about the chances of that happening.

Asked if he could take Tyson’s power at the fight’s kickoff press conference on Monday, Paul replied: “I know I will be able to.

“I’m a born heavyweight, that’s what I was born to do: move up to this weight class and show Mike who has more power because he underestimates me and I think I hit harder.

“I know it’s going to be hard, I know I’m going to have to fight through adversity, I know I might even go to the canvas, I’m scared, don’t get me wrong.

“But it’s not about fear stopping me, it’s about going even though I’m afraid – that’s true bravery.”

“We’ll see,” Tyson replied when asked the same question.

Paul and Tyson are set to face off in a highly controversial fight on July 20 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, live on Netflix.

Despite the staggering 31-year age gap between the two men, the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation sanctioned it as a professional heavyweight bout.

The last time Tyson boxed in the paid ranks was June 2005, when he retired to his stool late in the sixth round against Kevin McBride.

In contrast, Paul has been actively competing as a professional boxer for four years and has ten professional fights (9-1) under his belt.

“People doubt me,” Paul added during the press conference.

“I go to the Instagram comments, and I see them all saying that if Jake Paul wins this fight, it will be fixed because of how amazing he looks.

” Age does not matter. Age is just a number. He’s a killer, he’s a warrior.

“He’s been doing this his whole life, so it’s second nature to him. I’ve been doing this for four years and I’m doing it at a very high level.

“On July 20, I’m going to show the world that I can Mike Tyson, prove everyone wrong and show that I’m the one who will kill.”
