About The Fighters

Jake Paul

Paul, 27, is a professional boxer who made his career debut in August of 2018 in a white-collar match against Deli Olatunji. Paul won via technical knockout (TKO) in the fifth round. His professional boxing debut came two years later in January 2020 against AnEsonGib. He won that by TKO in the first round.

A rising star in the ring, Paul is no stranger to high-profile bouts, having taken on basketball player Nate Robinson in an exhibition match in November 2020. Following that bout, he pivoted to face retired UFC fighters like Tyron Woodley and Anderson Silva.

Paul returned to traditional boxing in December 2023 facing Andre August. His last fight was against American pro boxer, Ryan Bourland who he defeated via TKO in the first round in January 2024. Before embarking on his boxing career, Jake Paul was a content creator who initially posted videos on Vine and later YouTube, when the former video app was discontinued. 

Mike Tyson

Tyson, now 57, is a legend in the boxing world who made his debut in 1985 and retired in 2005. With nicknames like “Kid Dynamite” and “The Baddest Man on the Planet,” it is no surprise that Tyson reigned as the undisputed heavyweight champion with a record of 50–6 (44 KOs).

He holds the record as the youngest boxer to win the WBA, IBF and WBC world heavyweight titles. In 2007, ESPN ranked Mike Tyson number one on ‘The Hardest Hitters in Heavyweight History’ list and he was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2011.

Tyson returned to the ring in 2020 to face four-division world champion Roy Jones Jr. in an exhibition fight. It went eight rounds and was declared a draw.
