Mike Tyson Reveals He Urged His Son To ‘Get A Job’ Rather Than Pursue Boxing: Just Get Your Real Estate License
Mike Tyson may be one of the most well known boxers, but he’d rather have his son “get a job” than follow in his footsteps!
On a recent episode of Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson, the legendary boxer spoke on his son, Amir Tyson, wanting to box Logan Paul. While Mike Tyson has made a name for himself inside the ring, he wants his son to go another route.
Mike Tyson said:
“The oldest one, he’s 24, he wants to do this so bad… he wants to fight Logan Paul and those guys. He wants to do that, but I said, ‘Just get a job. Get your real estate license. Just chill out, man. Why can’t you take advantage of your lightweight wealthiness? Just chill. You don’t want none of that heat, man, I’m telling you.'”
“This drives people to commit suicide, getting humiliated in front of millions of people. You gotta be able to take that pressure and heat. Not many people can do it, man. It seems like a lot of people, but the people doing it is such a small percentage. It’s probably 1 percent if that.”
Amir Tyson‘s desire to fight Logan Paul comes after the YouTuber called Mike Tyson old and claimed he can beat the former world heavyweight champion. On an episode of his podcast, Impaulsive, Logan Paul claimed:
“Someone mentioned Mike Tyson. My lawyer mentioned it and he’s like, ‘Nah, Tyson will rip your head off, you don’t stand a chance.’ I’m like, ‘I just went through all this. You can’t tell me I can’t beat Mike Tyson. He’s old, old.'”
