And despite only having five professional fights behind him, the YouTuber-turned-boxer has no qualms about sharing the ring with Iron Mike.

During an appearance on The Journey Podcast, Paul said: “I would definitely step up to Mike Tyson.

“I joke about it with my friends and I think I’ll start eating Krispy Kreme donuts and go up to heavyweight and fight Mike Tyson.”

Paul, 25, admits a showdown with Tyson would motivate him to run those extra miles.

He said, “This fight would really excite me because it’s actually a $200 million, $300 million event.”

Problem child Paul is expected to return to the ring in August, although his opponent’s identity is yet to be revealed.

But his impending return hasn’t stopped him from challenging Tyson, 55, to throw down.

He said: “Mike Tyson bro if you see this let’s have some fun.

“New School vs. Old School. I think that’s something the fans want to see.”

Paul will grant his wish to swap heavy leather with Tyson provided the promoters can muster £1billion.

When recently asked how much it would cost to compete against the youngest Paul brother, Tyson said: “One billion dollars.

“We have to get something else [money] Man. Shit, blue-eyed blonde hair… that shit is very expensive.

“We need to get some more money, man.”

Former undisputed heavyweight king Tyson returned to the ring in November 2020 for an exhibition bout with fellow taller Roy Jones Jr.
