Mike Tyson has his say on Floyd Mayweather vs Jake Paul row

Mike Tyson backed Floyd Mayweather to "beat up" Jake Paul as he gave his verdict on the escalating tensions between the pair.

Mayweather is due to fight Logan Paul next month and came face to face with the American's younger brother, Jake, while promoting the bout on Thursday.

The Miami event descended into chaos as Jake, 24, stole the 44-year-old's hat and an ugly brawl broke out.

The YouTube star was left with a black eye before Mayweather was led away screaming "I'm going to kill that motherf*****".

The incident has led to widespread speculation the former five-weight world champion could face Jake after his exhibition fight with Logan.

But Tyson can only see such a bout ending badly for Jake, while he also ruled himself out of facing either Paul brother in a future spectacle.

"No, he's gonna get beat up pretty bad," the former world heavyweight champion told TMZ Sports when asked if Jake can beat Mayweather.

Quizzed on whether he would fight Jake or Logan, he added: "No, I like those guys, no. I love those guys."

Would either Paul brother stand a chance against 54-year-old Mike Tyson? Have your say in the comments.

Tyson and Jake fought on the same card in November last year as Iron Mike made a return to the ring to face Roy Jones Jr. in an exhibition heavyweight fight.

The bout between the two former champions ended in a draw, while Jake knocked out former NBA star Nate Robinson in the second round.

Jake has since claimed another victory, beating former UFC welterweight Ben Askren in the first round of their fight last month.

The American is no stranger to calling out all manner of fighters and has taunted superstars including Conor McGregor in recent months.

But it seems likely his next opponent will be Tommy Fury, the half-brother of WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson.

The pair have been calling each other out on social media and Jake has vowed to "expose" the "spoon-fed" Brit in the ring.
