Joe Rogan was absolutely amazed by boxing legend Mike Tyson’s reaction when he was called to a fight by YouTuber Jake Paul.
Jake Paul has blossomed into a serious fighter over the last few years. With a 5-0 record to his name, including a KO over former UFC champion Tyron Woodley, The Problem Child has shown some skill.
While he’s yet to have a firm opponent for his sixth fight, he has challenged some big names including Conor McGregor, Jorge Masvidal and Mike Tyson.
During an appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience, Tyson was asked how he felt challenged by the up-and-coming fighter and gave an answer some might not have expected.

As the two puffed joints and let the smoke fill the air of the podcast room, Rogan asked how Tyson felt about being challenged to fight Jake Paul.
“When you’re challenged by a guy like Jake Paul, does that make you angry?” Rogan asked.
“No it does not. I like it,” Tyson grinned. “I think it is awesome. It’s cool!”
“It’s great that you’re handling it that way,” the comedian replied. “Because it’s kind of insulting. It’s brave, it’s brave of him, but it’s also like that, Jesus Christ, there are levels in this world.”
According to Tyson, he’s learned that you can’t take yourself too seriously and that it’s hard to be angry with someone when your ego isn’t involved – something Rogan found “beautiful”.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Tyson and Jake Paul will be fighting in the ring any time soon. Iron Mike has shot down the YouTuber’s challenges at every turn, agreeing to only fight if he was paid “a billion dollars” — something even Jake doesn’t have.
Either way, it’s good to see Tyson in such a good mood – both literally and figuratively.
