Mike Tyson stopped watching Jake Paul spar after 30 SECONDS… because he wanted to ‘look at pictures’

MIKE TYSON watched Jake Paul spar for 30 SECONDS… as he went to look at pictures in the boxing gym.

Legendary trainer Freddie Roach – who once worked with Tyson – revealed Paul trained at his famed WildCard gym in Los Angeles.

And heavyweight legend Iron Mike happened to be there on the same day the boxer-turned-Youtuber was sparring.

But according to Hall of Famer Roach, the boxing icon had little interest in watching Paul, preferring to tour the gym walls.

Roach told FightHype: “Tyson looked at him and left.

“He saw 30 seconds of him sparring and said, ‘Freddie, can we go down and see the pictures?’

“He knows that’s where the good pictures are. He wasn’t as interested as I was.”

Tyson, 56, helped Paul’s boxing career with a spot on his undercard in 2020.

At the time, the social media sensation had won his professional boxing debut by defeating online rival “AnEsonGib” in one round.

Tyson returned to the ring after 15 years, drawing with Roy Jones Jr., 53, in an exhibition bout.


But Paul, 25, stole the show when he brutally knocked out ex-NBA star Nate Robinson, 38, in two rounds.

He has since beaten former UFC couple Ben Askren, 38, and Tyron Woodley, 40, defeating the ex-UFC champion in their rematch.

Paul returns on Oct. 29 in Arizona against UFC legend Anderson Silva, 47, who also has a 4-1 boxing record.

It’s unclear when the American visited Roach’s gym, but it’s safe to say Manny Pacquiao’s mentor wasn’t overly impressed.

He said: “The kid is fine, a club fighter.

“I don’t know him personally and have never really met him. He was at my gym wondering if they could use the ring and I said go ahead.”
