In a surprising turn of events, UFC fighter Colby Covington has weighed in on the upcoming fight between boxing legends Mike Tyson and Jake Paul. Known for his outspoken nature both inside and outside the octagon, Covington didn’t hold back in expressing his thoughts on this highly anticipated matchup.

Scheduled for July 20th, the bout between Tyson, a former undisputed heavyweight champion, and Paul, a YouTube sensation turned professional boxer, has captured the attention of fans worldwide. However, Covington’s take on the fight may raise a few eyebrows.

“I think Jake will knock him out within the first two minutes,” Covington boldly stated. “If Paul doesn’t do that, it’s only because he’ll keep Tyson in the fight and try to make this freak show competitive. I hate this fight.”

Covington’s prediction comes amidst a wave of skepticism and controversy surrounding the matchup. Many boxing purists argue that it tarnishes Tyson’s legacy to see him step into the ring with an internet personality-turned-fighter like Paul. However, others see it as a unique spectacle that could draw in a new audience to the sport of boxing.

Regardless of one’s opinion, there’s no denying the buzz surrounding the Tyson-Paul showdown.
