Mike Tyson sends warning shot to Jake Paul ahead of their July 20 fight, as 57-year-old boxing legend posts video of him throwing some bruising practice punches: ‘Can’t wait for this to be Jake’

Mike Tyson has sent a warning shot to Jake Paul ahead of their fight, with the 57-year-old boxing legend posting a fearsome practice video to call out his opponent.

Tyson and Paul, who is thirty years his junior, will be fighting on July 20 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

And Tyson is already well underway with his training for the fight, as a new video shows him landing some powerful blows on his practice partner – with an intimidating message for Paul as well.

‘Can’t wait for this to be Jake,’ he captioned the video.

Tyson was seen in the ring with coach Rafael Cordeiro in February as he showed off his still-remarkable punching power.

But while many fans will consider ‘Iron Mike’ the favorite to win the fight, Paul has warned Tyson not to ‘underestimate’ him ahead of the clash which will be broadcast on Netflix.

In an interview ahead of the fight, Paul alluded to one moment in Tyson’s career, just months after the YouTuber was born.

‘He can’t bite my ear off if I’ve knocked the teeth out of his mouth,’ Paul told FOX. ‘I really think he underestimates me.’

Paul, who was born in January 1997, added: ‘He is much stronger, but I am fresh. He is experienced. I’m smart in the ring, but maybe he’s even smarter. It will be very interesting.’

Tyson’s last official bout was in 2005, whilst Paul has been boxing at the pro level since 2020.

The former heavyweight champion claimed he was ‘scared to death’ ahead of the fight, but added ‘This is a guy who’s going to try and hurt me, which I’m accustomed to, and he’s going to be greatly mistaken.’
