The fight could reportedly generate up to £36million

Mike Tyson has dismissed suggestions that he and Jake Paul are in negotiations to step into the ring together in Las Vegas this year.

The Sun reported that negotiations were in the “advanced” stage and if the fight went ahead, could generate up to £36million (USD$49 million).

However, Tyson, 55, has since sought to clarify rumours of a mega-fight between himself and the 25-year-old Paul, with the former heavyweight boxer taking to social media to discuss the situation.

Responding to reports of an agreement between himself and ‘The Problem Child’, Tyson said: “This is new to me. I saw Jake in St. Barts and he never mentioned it.”

While Tyson may have denied that a fight between the pair is in the works, he has previously stated that he could easily knock Paul out.

When asked if he could KO the YouTuber-turned-boxer, he said: “So f****** easy. Yeah, but I would never. I’d be against my own f***** family. They love this little white motherf*****. You know what I mean?
