Mike Tyson was the youngest heavyweight boxing champion in history and was also known as the “baddest man on the planet.”

He has a comeback fight taking place this July.

And Jesse Watters couldn’t believe what this YouTube star said about Mike Tyson.

Jake Paul trash-talks Mike Tyson ahead of July 20 bout

Boxing legend Mike Tyson is set to fight YouTube star Jake Paul on July 20 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Netflix will livestream the fight.

Paul has nearly 21,000,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel and found a new calling in boxing matches against UFC fighters.

Now he is set for his highest-profile fight against the 57-year-old Tyson.

Paul appeared on Jesse Watters’ Fox News show to promote the fight and predicted victory telling him that while Tyson was bigger and stronger, he was younger and quicker.

“I think he’s underestimating me,” Paul stated. “I truly, truly think that; and it’s a heavyweight fight so he’s the bigger man but I’m the faster man. He’s the much stronger man, but I’m fresh. He’s experienced. I’m smart, but in the ring, he may be smarter. So, it’s a really interesting matchup but I think the whole world and a lot of people see his training videos and yes, he looks like a beast. He’s a dog. He’s ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson, but I believe I have what it takes to beat him and I know this is the toughest test of my life, and it’s an honor to be in there with Mike — but at the end of the day, I’m gonna be the one who gets my hand raised.”

Watters then made a joke about Tyson getting disqualified in a 1997 title fight against Evander Holyfield for biting off a piece of his ear during the fight.

Paul responded by telling Watters if Tyson pulled such a stunt, it wouldn’t end well.

“He can’t bite my ear off if I knock his teeth out,” Paul shot back.

Mike Tyson also appeared on Fox News to promote the fight

In an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Tyson warned Paul that he was taking the fight very seriously.

“I think it’s, you know, he came a long way from YouTubing — and listen, I’ve seen the YouTube of him at 16 doing weird dances. That’s not the guy I’m going to be fighting. This guy is going to come out and then try to hurt me, which I’m accustomed to, he’s going to be greatly mistaken,” Tyson told Hannity.

Tyson also posted training footage that showed he still had the frightening speed and punching power that made him one of the most feared heavyweights of all time.
