CAPE TOWN – Having shared a ring with Floyd Mayweather and not lost because the bout was an exhibition fight, YouTube star insists he could take on Mike Tyson.

Speaking on his podcast impaulsive, he said: "Someone mentioned Mike Tyson, like how funny is it? One great at a time. Or is it like you can only fight one?

"My lawyer mentioned it and he was like: 'No, Tyson will rip your head off, you don't stand a chance'.

"I'm like: 'Bro, I literally just went through all of this, you can't tell me I can't beat Mike Tyson'.

"Bro, he's old, old!"

Luckily for Paul, 54-year-old Tyson returned to the ring last year, and took on fellow former world heavyweight champion Roy Jones Jr, also in an exhibition fight.
