YOUTUBE sensation turn boxer Jake Paul has agreed to fight American icon Mike Tyson BEFORE the end of the year.
Tyson laid down the gauntlet to Paul by declaring on Jimmy Kimmel that a fight could happen, but it would have to be by the end of this year.
On the prospect of fighting Paul, he said: “Anything is possible but it has got to happen this year.”
YouTuber Paul, who has over 20 million followers on the video platform, accepted the challenge via a message on his Twitter page.
He said: “Thank you to the great Mike Tyson for the respect and opportunity. This year we are making it happen.”
Paul is relatively new to the boxing scene, and has brought a lot of new viewers to the sport while making a lot of noise. A fact Tyson has praised Paul for.
“That could be really interesting. He’s skilled enough, I’m going to give it him, he’s skilled enough because he keeps winning,” Tyson said.
“Even if he is fighting fighters that aren’t meant to be good enough, they should still be beating him but they can’t. He is beating people that he shouldn’t really be beating so you have to give him credit.
“He is doing good and he is doing things that are great for boxing. This guy has seven million people following him every time he fights.
“The champions of the world don’t have that many people following him so what he is doing for boxing is sensational.”

In his fledgling career Paul has participated in five professional bouts, winning all five, including two against former UFC Champion Tyron Woodley.
Meanwhile, Iron Mike’s record is far more impressive, as would be expected from someone who retired from the sport an all-time legend in 2006.
The former undisputed heavyweight champion was the youngest to ever hold the WBC, WBA, and IBF titles.
His career record stands at 58 fights and 50 wins, with 44 of these coming via knockout.
