'Let's do it' – Mike Tyson, 55, ACCEPTS fight with Jake Paul, 25, to 'break the record' and predicts $80m earnings
MIKE TYSON is ready to ACCEPT a fight with YouTube sensation Jake Paul and predicted it could make $80million.
The heavyweight legend and the social media star have been linked with a mega-bout in the past.
Now Tyson, 55, revealed he would agree to fight Paul, 25, and urged the American celebrity to come to terms.
He said on his podcast: "Hell yeah [I'd do it], only to break the record.
"Jake Paul believe it not is more profitable than the champs, this guy probably brings about 80million people to the table.
"Let's do it Jakey, God wouldn't that be cool."
Tyson in November 2020 came out of retirement for a sensational exhibition fight against Roy Jones Jr, 53, which ended a draw.
Paul, who has beaten online rival 'AnEsonGib' on his debut, knocked out ex-NBA player Nate Robinson, 37, on the undercard.
He has since beaten retired UFC welterweight Ben Askren, 37, and Tyron Woodley, 39, twice, on points and then knockout.
The multimillionaire former prankster is set to return in August and previously said he would love to face Tyson.

Tyson said: "I would worry about him getting in trouble before the fight happened.
"I'd tell him, 'Hey man, you're going to go for jail for real, chill out'. This dude's crazy, he would be throwing stuff at people, bottles and stuff."
