The two Americans will face off on July 20

Jake Paul has been dubbed an 'absolute p***k' by Tony Bellew ahead of his fight with Mike Tyson later this year.

And the former boxing star has revealed he's willing to go to prison if Tyson is hurt in their fight in Texas on July 20.


The boxing world is divided over the boxing fight, which is set to be a professional bout - instead of an exhibition.

Paul is a divisive figure, too, with the 27-year-old a wild character that's never afraid to mince his world.

And Bellew has now vented his fury, with the former boxing star calling Paul a 'p***k' and saying that Neflix 'don't care' about Tyson's health.

"Mike is probably getting between £20-50 million for this fight, I'm not going to lie, I'd do it," he told Boyle Sports, who provide the latest boxing betting.

"Everyone has got a price. But if Jake Paul hurts Mike Tyson it would absolutely kill me.

"If he hurt Mike Tyson and I then I run into Jake Paul, I'd chin him, quite happily. I would even spend a couple weeks in the big house for that.

"It's a sad, sad day. It's not a professional contest really because only women fight two minute rounds, men do not fight two minutes.

"But Jake Paul is so f*****g pig headed, he wants it to go on Mike Tyson's record.

"Hopefully Mike chins him and puts him to sleep in six or seven seconds.

"The age Tyson is at, he could be Jake Paul's grandfather, so it's sad really.

"It should have been left as an exhibition, the money would not have changed, why is Jake Paul fighting to have it on Mike Tyson's record the absolute p***k.

"But that's who he is, he's after clout and fame. I just hope Mike has that one punch left in him.

"He will never lose that punch, he's lost the snap and sharpness of it, but if he turns a right hand over and hits Jake Paul on the chin, the boy is going to sleep.

"But at 58 years old it's f*****g frightening, this is show business, this really isn't boxing.

"I don't think Netflix cares about Mike's health, they generated 25 billion last year.

"Netflix doesn't give a s**t about Mike Tyson. They don't give a monkey's a** about Mike.

"No one cares and the saddest part is, Mike knows that - he's been there, done it and got the T-shirt.

"I love Mike Tyson. I met him and he gave me the best advice, I had just won the Commonwealth title, I sat down and he signed my belt.

"He was about to do a dinner show and I said to him 'what advice have you got for me' and he gave me all sorts of advice, but the most important thing he said to me is 'stay away from hoes and cocaine'.

"I said to him 'I've got a lunatic wife and a couple kids, so that's well off the agenda'."

While Paul is a divisive figure, however, Tyson is more than happy to be fighting his compatriot.

And, speaking at a pre-fight press conference in New York on Monday, the boxing legend insisted the pair were friends - but wouldn't be when they enter the ring.

"This fight is very important," he said.

"Just the fact that he is taking the opportunity to fight me is mind-blowing … I'm very impressed with what he's accomplished.

"The people who said that [I am too old to fight] wish that they were up here. No one else can do this.

"Who else can do this? Who else can shut the sporting world down? No one else can do it.

"You got the both of us, so we're going to do this. We're friends. There's no doubt we're friends."

"But in the ring, we're not going to be friends. That's just what it is.”
