Paul has announced he will be fighting in Madison Spuare Garden on August 6th, and Tyson has heaped praise on Paul on his boxing career thus far.
Tyson said on Jimmy Kimmel Live that: “I’m gonna give it to him. He’s skilled enough because he’s winning. Even if he’s fighting guys that you guys don’t believe is a good enough fighter, they should be able to beat him, but they can’t. He’s beating people that he shouldn’t really be beating. We got to give him that credit.
“And he’s doing so much good for boxing. Listen, this guy got 70 million people following him every time he fights. Champions of the world don’t have that many people following them. So what he’s doing for boxing is just sensational. No one should be hating on that, he’s helping everyone get money. Why are people mad at him?”
Tyson also mentioned that a fight with Paul interests him, aslong as it happens this year:
“I never really took it serious, but yeah it could be really interesting.
“Everything is possible, yeah, But it gotta happen this year. It gotta happen this year.”
Paul responded on Twitter, tweeting the video of the conversation on Jimmy Kimmel with the caption: "Thank you to the great Mike Tyson for the respect and opportunity. This year we are making it happen."
