"It's Fantastic." Fury Excited About Paul vs. Tyson Matchup

WBC heavyweight champion from Britain, Tyson Fury, surprisingly spoke favorably about the matchup between Mike Tyson and YouTuber Jake Paul, stating it's an even contest.

"I think it's fantastic for boxing. You've got a legend and a YouTube boxer who entered the game and blew it up. Who am I to say Mike Tyson or Jake Paul shouldn't be boxing?

Good luck to them, they're both going to make a pile of money. Alright, this guy's 57, but he's a former undisputed heavyweight king.

The other is a young guy making a living playing video games and came into boxing a year ago. It's a fairly even fight. People say it's crap, but bet they'll watch it anyway," said Fury.

The Tyson vs. Paul face-off is scheduled for May 18th and will be streamed by Netflix. It's currently unknown whether it will be an official or exhibition bout, as well as if there are any additional conditions for the participants.
