Zab Judah has called on Jake Paul to continue his march into boxing and target a fight with former heavyweight champion, Mike Tyson.
Paul is currently set to face Nate Diaz in August in a bout that will have a huge number of eyes on it – shown live on DAZN PPV – but after facing a UFC great, Judah believes the popular YouTuber should do similar with a boxing legend.
Paul is looking to get back to winning ways when he faces Diaz following his narrow loss to Tommy Fury back in February.
There was speculation linking Paul to an immediate rematch with the younger brother of Tyson Fury, but that plan is on hold for now. Judah, a huge admirer of Paul, has called on the boxing novice to pursue a fight with Tyson.
“If Jake Paul manages to align himself with a fight with Mike Tyson, yes, I think he should take the fight,” said Judah when speaking with OLBG.
“Jake is one of the pioneers of our era, a guy that came into boxing and changed the game. He came in and ran up numbers, I commend him for that, but Mike Tyson would knock Jake Paul out.
“Jake is my boy and even Jake would say, ‘Woah, Mike Tyson – that’s a different calibre of fighter.’ He would get knocked out. 100 percent.”
