Tyson urges Paul to not quit boxing

Tyson OK’d Paul’s threat to the trenches of social media martial arts and, having successfully defended his title, managed to emerge unscathed out of that battlefield, having countered that the Instagram brat turned professional boxer should stand his ground and not allow his weaker-hearted fans’ hopes of his backing off materialize.

The heavyweight icon made an appearance on The Damon Elliot Show to promote the fight. During the show, Elliot, the host, attempted to dissuade Paul from the match, recounting his own experience with Tyson: “Jake, I’ve known Mike since he smacked the s**t out of me at 14-years-old, and my face has never been the same,” he warned.

“Do it Jake, please, don’t listen to this man. Jake, don’t listen to him, please,” Tyson insisted.

The performance faced hurdles in getting their bout approved professionally, and they encountered that the fight would not be official because of their age difference.
