    Jake Paul has called out everyone from Conor McGregor to his own BROTHER Logan after his knocking out Nate Robinson.

    Speaking in his post-fight interview, the YouTube star said: “I’ve been training my ass off for the past year. I’m taking this seriously.

    “There’s a long list of opponents that I want — Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis. I’m going to knock them both out.

    “There’s my brother, KSI on the line, Austin McBroom. I want to be in this sport for a long time. I’m in love with it so why not?”


    Mike Tyson is set to make £7.5million from his mouthwatering comeback fight against Roy Jones Jr.

    In the UK, it will cost fight fans £19.95 to watch the pair, with a combined age of 105, go to war.

    In the US it will blast a much bigger hole in people's wallets.

    The price to see the legends trade leather will be $49.99, around £38.

    The fight, which went all eight rounds, has meant that Tyson could walk away with £7.5m.

    That equates to £937,500 per round, £468,500 per minute and £7,812 per second.


    Snoop Dogg trolled Mike Tyson's comeback fight against Roy Jones Jr by claiming the bout was more “like two of my uncles fighting at the BBQ”.

    The legendary pair boxed to a DRAW over eight rounds in what ultimately provided more clinching than punching.

    The mainly uneventful pay-per-view spectacle had little highlights, meaning the veteran duo avoided any risks to their health.


    Mike Tyson drew in his big boxing comeback against Roy Jones Jr in a messy affair in Los Angeles.

    Jones Jr did the perfect job of stifling Tyson throughout the entire fight by clinching at any opportunity he could.

    The pair were fighting at the Staples Center after all.

    So that gave Roy Jones Jr the idea of wearing special gloves in tribute to the late great Kobe Bryant, who tragically died in a helicopter crash last year.

    The NBA legend was hugely revered and loved in California.

    Roy Jones Jr said: “Dude is so strong man… when he hits you, to the head, punches to the body shots, everything hurts.
