Mike Tyson versus Jake Paul simulated as boxing legend opens door to fight against YouTuber | The Sun
JAKE PAUL stepped into the ring with Mike Tyson – and went all the way to the final bell of the blockbuster showdown.
But unfortunately for the YouTuber, that was in a virtual boxing fight simulated on a games console.
Boxing Fight Simulations posted the bout between Iron Mike and the Problem Child on their YouTube channel, using the popular EA Sports Fight Night Champion Xbox video game.
With the two players matched up for age to try and even it up, they slugged it out for eight long rounds with some very questionable graphics and sound effects.
Tyson had his iconic shaved head, grey beard and face tattoo while Paul's blonde hair and tattoos were the only resemblances to the 5-0 unbeaten star.
And with neither fighter able to find a knockout blow in their 24-minute slug-fest, it came down to the judges' scorecards.

Jake Paul agrees to fight heavyweight legend Tyson ‘THIS YEAR’
All three gave Paul the opening two rounds but Tyson came back to clinch it 77-75 for the trio with a unanimous points victory.
And while the video tussle may not be a fair reflection of how the 55-year-old former undisputed heavyweight world champion would get on against the relative novice 30 years his junior.
Tyson, after all, was the youngest to ever hold the WBC, WBA, and IBF belts and won 50 of 58 fights including 44 by knockout – whereas Paul has five wins from five, including one against a basketballer and three against former MMA fighters.
However, boxing fans may not have to wait too long to see the real thing.
