Mike Tyson has admitted that Jake Paul is good for boxing after the YouTuber beat MMA fighter Ben Askren in the ring.

Traditional boxing fans have been largely dismayed by the entrance of YouTubers like Jake Paul on to the boxing scene, yet it helps give the sport exposure to a different audience.

“That’s why this stuff is good, because the real motherf*****s don’t want to fight each other,” Tyson said on his Hotboxin’ podcast.

“That’s why those guys like Jake Paul… He came on my show, you know why? Because he’s got 75 million f***ing viewers.

“Not a lot of champions got that s*** so he’s good for boxing.

“Is he kind of ridiculous, yeah, but is he good for boxing, f*** yeah.

“Boxing needs s**t like that.”

Jake’s brother, Logan Paul, is set to fight Floyd Mayweather later this year.
