Ex-champ worries for Tyson in Jake Paul fight

By Majesty 3 Min Read

From one former heavyweight champion to another, Deontay Wilder worries that Mike Tyson, 57, may suffer a convulsion following his battle with Jake Paul. 

On July 20, Tyson agreed to fight Paul in a professional match that had been commissioned by the Texas Department of Licencing and Regulations, shocking everyone in the process. 

Although the fight that was first supposed to be an exhibition has become much anticipated, according to Wilder, nobody actually gives a damn about Tyson’s welfare.

In an interview with Sportsbook Review, Wilder stated, “I think it is bad that the commission licenced Mike Tyson because he has not been active in 20 years.

They should not just licence him because of who he is, because that is how people get hurt – God forbid he gets hurt.” 

It is possible for someone to be struck at the incorrect time or location; there are numerous instances of men being struck and going into a coma. It is simple to carry out. It is too late for him. 

“At the end of the day, no one gives an f— about Mike.”

Wilder went on to claim that it doesn’t matter that Tyson had testing done in order to classify this as a professional fight. 

“As long as you’re ready to bear the repercussions in the event that something goes wrong,” Wilder remarked. Paul previously declared, “All is fair in love and war,” but he is “extremely respectful” of Tyson after the fight was approved.

The YouTuber-turned-boxer declared, “I love the guy, but as soon as it turned into a pro battle, one of us needs to die.” The speed and strength that Tyson still possesses at his age has stunned many who have watched videos of him training for the battle. 

However, Wilder is once more indifferent to what films depict or even to Tyson’s statements regarding his wellbeing. 

Even while his strength might not have entirely disappeared, you still need to set everything up and have a certain level of endurance; otherwise, it would appear like a clown show. To be honest, I don’t want to see it,” he said.

“I do not want him getting knocked out by a YouTuber to be the last thing I remember about him.” The final action you take is what people will remember you for.” June 1st will see Wilder take on Zhilei Zhang, as Paul and Tyson get ready for battle.
