Mike Tyson ‘envious’ of Logan and Jake Paul as they ‘get all the f****** money’

Heavyweight boxing legend Mike Tyson has gone green with envy as Youtubers Logan and Jake Paul continue to make their millions from exhibition fights.

Logan Paul is set to make £100million in a six-round clash on June 6 in Miami, according to his opponent in unbeaten five-weight world champion Floyd Mayweather.

Tyson, 54, returned to the ring last year in an exhibition with former light-heavyweight king Roy Jones Jr, where Logan's brother Jake appeared on the undercard with a knockout win over basketball star Nate Robinson.

Iron Mike has since confessed his jealously over the attention that the Paul brothers command, and he said most fighters would want to "kill them."

"These guys make boxing so awesome. The boxers, the real champions, they don't have that many views," Tyson told CinemaBlend.

"They'll be happy if they have a million views. These guys are 80 million views. I was like, 'God damn, man. How do you do that?'

"That's why everybody wants to kill them, because they see this little white guy, blonde hair, blue eyes, 'getting all the f***ing money, talking all this s***.

"Everybody wants to kill them. I get envious when I see these guys, I'm like, 'What the f*** are they doing?'"

Tyson added "it's easy to hate" the Paul brothers and most fans would agree after Jake Paul's latest publicity stunt.

After confronting Mayweather at a press conference for his brother's fight, he stole Mayweather's hat and sparked a brawl. Jake Paul is reportedly banned from the fight on June 6.

Asked whether Logan Paul has a chance of beating Mayweather by TMZ, Tyson replied: "No. He's gonna get beat up pretty bad."

"Listen, Floyd's a better fighter than all of those guys right now," he added.

"Floyd right now, even though he's 40-something, he's still better than all the fighters now and he's still fighting a YouTuber."
