Jake Paul warned he is making "big mistake" with Mike Tyson replacement

View11comment0

Jake Paul has been told that he is making a mistake by facing Mike Perry after his Mike Tyson fight was postponed.

YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul was scheduled to face heavyweight legend Tyson on July 20 but the controversial bout has been pushed back to November 15. 'Iron Mike' suffered an ulcer flare-up whilst onboard a flight last month and was forced to pull out of the fight upon doctor's advice.

Paul wants to stay busy before his rescheduled fight against Tyson and is expected to still fight on July 20 against Perry, a former UFC turned bare-knuckle boxing star. UFC legend Michael Bisping thinks Paul has bitten off more than he can chew by agreeing to fight Perry on short notice.

“I say that he has made a big mistake here,” Bisping said on his YouTube channel. “The reason that he Called out Tommy Fury is because he is a YouTube star and he has the name Fury, he thought he could beat him. He didn’t beat him, so he went back to people like Nate Diaz. When you’re talking about Mike Perry, he is a savage.

“He’s got good technique, when you look at the boxing of Jake Paul. Even though he was going up against Mike Tyson, there was a chance and danger that he would lose that fight in devastating fashion. He thinks Mike Perry is easy work, he thinks he is going to go out there and beat him but he’s wrong. Mike Perry is a fighter, there isn’t a fight that he won’t take. He is the epitome of a real fighter.

"When you talk about Mike Perry, the fact that he's beaten guys like Luke Rockhold and Michael 'Venom' Page shows that he is making a mistake. Jake Paul has made a tremendous mistake because Mike is a real fighter and he is going to go right at Jake. The man has got a chin and the fire still burns."

Tyson hasn't competed in a professional fight in almost two decades and will be 58-years-old when he fights Paul in November. The boxing legend will have to pass brain and heart scans to be eligible to fight but has insisted he is in good health despite his recent medical scare.
