    This will be a fake pretend fight like the Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones exhibition was.

    Even if they exchange the age difference, and Paul's 58...

    Good point, squire. Mike is probably in the twilight years of his prime now and Jake is still very much pre-prime. A 58 y/o Jake vs a 27 y/o Mike still ends badly for Mike.

    Sparing session probably with clauses that both guys can't do certain things. At the end it will end in no decision over 8, Jake will be applauded for going 8 with Tyson, Tyson for going 8 at his age with Paul.

    Sparing is alot different than an actual fight.
    Definately not worth it.
    So many gullible viewers.
    Its like selling dog ****, and making people think that it is icecream.

    All true, squire. I know for a fact that the 58 year olds of the future are never gonna be made as good again. Much better than the ones born before your Jake Paul's

    If anything, Paul's just gonna keep getting better upto and beyond the age of 58. He's got an open ended ever increasing prime. It's the new breed of you tube boxers, you see . Nothing compares or is good enough from the past, to them, now, or their future selves

    Hell, when he's actually dead, he'll be really totally unbeatable.....super prime eternity class.

    Prime Mike?

    Paul’s legs would begin to buckle before first bell.

    Watching Mike in In hey day, I always used to feel a tingling numb in my legs when I imagined myself to be the opponent, standing in the opposing corner to Mike - now that’s intimidation!

    Thanks Rum.

    It should never go without saying that your video treatments are excellent and always highly enjoyable.

    Loved the reference to Paul Hogan, a real nice shout out to Jake and Logan’s Dad.

    Croc Dundee vs Child Eating Mike?

    C’mon, easy pick: “That’s not an uppercut, THIS is an uppercut!”

    Same old, isn’t it?

    True ATGs like Jake are never properly appreciated during their actual careers (hello Lennox).

    Jake’s gonna tattoo the tattoo on Mike’s face.

    Give it 10 yrs or so after Jake’s last resounding victory before the masses duly recognise.

    I hear Jake is looking to wrap up with Dirty Harry High Pants, Clint Eastwood.

    What a scalp that would be?

    Though Jake has to be mindful not to incur a possible DQ for a low blow if he hits Clint anywhere below the sternum.

    Ridiculous exhibition/stunt for money. Should have Zero significance for anyone who follows the sport.

    Even the 1987-88 version of Tyson, the one that ko'd Holmes, Spinks, Tubbs, Tyrrell Biggs, Bruno and Carl Williams?

    I don’t know who will win but I’m hoping Tyson smashes him to bits. If I was jake Paul I would feel shame for fighting someone who is so much older. It’s embarrassing.
