Two men who have been featured guests at WWE WrestleMania are reportedly set to face off in another type of squared circle, the boxing ring. Boxing legend Mike Tyson and YouTube star Logan Paul are seemingly heading towards a clash in early 2022.
News of the bout was reported by Daniel Keem of DramaAlert, who claims it will take place in February next year.

While not confirming the fight, Tyson did little to dispel the idea that it would happen, telling The Sun that he will be having his next fight in February and he’s “pretty sceptical about the opponent”.
“I am going to have a return fight in February and we are pretty skeptical about the opponent, but it will be a really stimulating opponent.”
Tyson, of course, has a long history with professional wrestling and was most famously the Ringside Enforcer for the WrestleMania 14 main event between Shawn Michaels and ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin. In the lead up to the 1998 event, it appeared that Tyson was on the side of Michaels and his stable, D-Generation X. However, when it came to the night itself, he turned on Michaels and performed a fast three-count to award Austin his first WWE Championship. The former heavyweight boxing champion was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2012.
Paul appeared at this year’s WrestleMania 37 as the special guest of Sami Zayn who had a match against Kevin Owens at the event. Much like Tyson, Paul turned on his apparent ally at the event, shoving Zayn out of the ring and congratulating a victorious Kevin Owens. However, Owens did not take kindly to the YouTube personality and gave him a stunner for his efforts before leaving the ring.
