Mike Tyson vs. Jake Paul

Concerns arise over the upcoming bout between boxing legends Mike Tyson and Jake Paul, as Saudi boxing chief, Turki Alalshikh, jokingly hints at suspicions of rigging.

Set to take place on July 20, Tyson, 57, will face the significantly younger Paul, 26, in what promises to be a contentious clash in Texas.

Some fans have voiced fears for Tyson’s safety, especially following his lackluster performance against Roy Jones Jr. in November 2020. Speculations on social media even suggest that the fight might be predetermined, despite lacking any substantial evidence.

Alalshikh added a touch of humor to the conversation, urging Tyson to defy any predetermined “script” and secure victory over Paul. His tweet sparked mixed reactions from fans, with some echoing his sentiments while others expressed skepticism.
