Mike Tyson Says He's Not Fighting Jake Paul

Mike Tyson has shot down rumors he'll be fighting YouTuber Jake Paul.

"A verbal deal has been struck to get it on, but like all forms of sports business, now it's all about the contracts and money split. Mike is looking for a certain figure to get into the ring with a profit share guarantee," a source told The Sun. "Jake obviously has that on his mind but is keen to show the world that stepping into the ring with a man once called, 'the baddest man on the planet,' takes his boxing career to the next level."

On Twitter, Tyson let fans know that he had not agreed to a fight with the Paul brother. "This is new to me. I saw Jake in St. Barths and he never mentioned it."

Jake Paul has been trying to fight Tyson. He thinks he can beat him because Tyson is a lot older.
