Mike Tyson vs Jake Paul: Why Tyson Will Take the Glory

With the much-hyped boxing match of legendary Mike Tyson and controversial YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul near, speculation is rife around the world. So let's dive into the parallel worlds of these fighters, and break down the comparisons between both men, and their backgrounds. 


Mike Tyson: A Living Legend

By no introduction, Michael Gerard Tyson called Iron Mike was born on June 30,1996 in Brooklyn, New York. Career success and life stories are sewn together in the history of boxing. The record speaks for itself, a remarkable 50 wins with 44 knockouts—Tyson's boxing accomplishments are symbolic of one of the greatest talents the sport has ever seen. He was the man who defeated Larry Holmes and Michael Spinks in two memorable super-fights that would reverberate through the ages of boxing history.


Tyson may be 58 years old, but his commitment to fitness and training is impressive given all of the time he competed over more than four decades. In Mike Tyson's most recent fight out of retirement against legend Roy Jones Jr.,  showcased a fighter whose power and tenacity had scarcely ebbed with time. They say that power is the last to go, and his grueling training schedule tends to confirm Tyson's devotion. 


Jake Paul: Problematic Opponent

At the other extreme is Jake Paul, a 27-year-old former social media influencer who has become one of the most polarizing figures in professional boxing. A 9-1 record with 6 knockouts must be weighed heavily and Paul's stubborn dedication to the sweet science can not be ignored. Paul has made more than $10 million from boxing fellow social media stars and is now eyeing a career as a promoter -- not just staying in the ring but also venturing into that of UFC fighters and champions such as Nate Diaz and Ben Askren.


Tyson vs Paul: The Showdown

The boxing world is getting prepared for this rare showdown between the two generations, which begs the question on everyone's lips - Can Tyson for his age beat Paul who's much younger and nimble? And it looks like the resounding answer speaks to Tyson's lasting legacy and unparalleled savagery.


The great debate of age vs. experience: though in sports, athleticism is truly the ruler. Tyson has made it clear that when one works hard continuously at their craft, your age becomes irrelevant because no matter what, Iron Mike will always have his incomparable skillset.


Boxing Pedigree

Boxing fans have little doubt as to who the favorite is in this fight, given Tyson's storied career and crushing knockouts during his prime; many believe that Tyson will pull through with a win simply based on his aggressive boxing style and patented punching power.

By most fans surprise is looking like the betting odds are leaning in with younger and fresher Fighter, Jake Paul.

In the End

To summarize, we have a fascinating clash between two fighters whose eras are markedly different. Paul might be young and full of energy, but Tyson's legacy is so much greater that as one of the all-time greats both physically and mentally, he is ready to fight one more time. However, we all continue to wait in anticipation of the war on July 20 which will indicate whether experience and age can take over youth and agility in what is bound to be an entertaining occasion for boxing fans around the globe.


As the great Muhammad Ali once said, “The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses — behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights."
