Jake Paul has called on Mike Tyson to make an exhibition fight happen.

YouTuber-turned-professional boxer Jake Paul has been called this generation's Mike Tyson – at least, by his brother that is.

And what better way to truly test that theory out than put the two boxers head-to-head?

Tyson has previously stated that he would be up for fighting either of the brothers, however he said that he would only take to the ring with Jake if the price is right.

While the pair have chilled out together smoking and 'taking shrooms', Tyson revealed it would take 'a billion bucks' to get him to fight Jake.

Jake told Boxing Social the fight between him and Tyson would be 'legendary'.

He said: "The old generation of boxing with the new generation of boxing, all being mixed into one.

"As Mike Tyson said on the Joe Rogan podcast, it would be one of the biggest pay-per-views of all time. Together when we were on the same card, we sold almost two million pay-per-views. It could be three million pay-per-views, four million pay-per-views.

"Mike Tyson like you said on the podcast, if you’re watching this, let’s make the fight happen."

Not only this, but Jake has stated he isn't only 'ready' for the right, but also thinks he 'would win'.

So far in his professional boxing career, Jake has remained undefeated.

He has gone against the likes of Tyron Woodley and Nate Robinson, with a total of five wins, no losses and no draws.

However, Jake has yet to take to the ring since his fight with Woodley, which took place in December, 2021.

He is also yet to fight a professional fighter, with Woodley and Ben Askren being current or former MMA fighters, Robinson a former basketball player and AnEsonGib a YouTuber.

On the podcast earlier this month, Tyson said he'd 'love' to fight Jake.

"Let’s do it, Jakey. God, wouldn’t that be cool?" he said.

Tyson only just returned to his career as a heavyweight champion – a decision he made while tripping on toad venom – fighting Roy Jones Jr. in an exhibition bout in 2020 after 16 years out of the ring.

Instead of punching NBA mascots or airline passengers, maybe the pair of boxers will decide to turn their energies towards one another.
