Logan Paul Claims Everyone Thinks Jake Paul Is This Generation’s Mike Tyson

YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul has garnered plenty of attention after winning all five of the fights he’s taken on. However, he still has a way to go before he can truly be considered a champion and legend in the sport. Just don’t tell that to his brother, Logan Paul, who insists that everyone believes Jake is this generation’s Mike Tyson.

  1. Logan is definitely his brother’s biggest fan. Quoting a tweet he’d seen going around, Logan said: “Our great-grandparents had Muhammad Ali, our parents had Mike Tyson, and we have Jake Paul.” If ever a comment has been a bit premature, it’s this one.
  2. To be fair, Jake is a better boxer than Logan. Logan, 26, not only lost in a rematch with KSI but he took part in an exhibition match with Floyd Mayweather that didn’t go so well either. By contrast, 24-year-old Jake has won all five of his fights thus far.
  3. Jake hasn’t actually fought a professional boxer yet. It’s great that he’s been doing so well in the ring, but his luck might change once he starts taking on heavier opponents. He was due to fight Tommy Fury, but Fury is currently nursing broken ribs and is unable to fight. Thus far, Jake has beaten MMA fighters Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley, former basketball player Nate Robinson, and YouTuber AnEsonGib.
  4. Now, Jake’s taking a break from boxing. Instead of really cementing his place in the boxing world, Jake recently said that he’s going to take a few months off because he’s “accomplished what I want to accomplish.” He doesn’t plan on returning to boxing before May 2022.
