Hulk Hogan Says Mike Tyson Will 'Seek And Destroy' In Jake Paul Fight

The highly anticipated Jake 'The Problem Child' Paul vs. 'Iron Mike' Tyson fight, which was originally scheduled for July 20, has been postponed to November 15, after former heavyweight champion Tyson had a "health scare" on a plane a couple weeks back.

With the new fight date set, wrestling legend Hulk Hogan was asked about his prediction for the bout, when making an appearance on TMZ Wednesday.

Hogan said that even at 57 years old (will be 58 at the time of fight), Tyson can still take care of business against Paul, who is exactly 30 years younger.

"When he gets focused, he will seek and destroy. I see that bad dog look in his eye now. It's like when you don't trust a bad dog, it might bite ya at any time. That's the look he's got. I remember that look from 25 years ago, it's kind of scary."

Hogan was around when they called Tyson, "The Baddest Man on the Planet," and noted that he should still be feared.

It must be remembered, Tyson won his first 19 professional fights being done by knockout, and held the title of heavyweight champion from 1987 to 1990. That is to say, 37 years ago, as a 20-year-old, he was the youngest boxer to win a heavyweight title.

Now fast forward to 2024, and Tyson, who last fought in 2005, will be going up against a Youtuber in a fight that reportedly could earn him up to $20 million dollars.

Hogan also is said to have a relationship with Tyson's competitor Jake Paul, as the two were seen with each other last month.

Hogan's message is that it will be a good fight, as Paul in his prime, sporting a career professional boxing record of 9-1 (six knockouts), will face off with the older and experienced Tyson, who has a 50-6 record (44 knockouts); the fight will be broadcasted November 15 on Netflix.

"I'm excited about it," Hogan said, "I'm kind of glad it's rescheduled because I don't want any excuses. I want both men at 100%... And I've got a feeling this is gonna be the fight of the century, brothers. This is gonna be a good one."
