Mike Tyson, the former heavyweight champion, defended his decision to return to the ring at 57, calling it a "no-brainer" despite criticism of his age. He admitted that training for his upcoming bout against YouTuber-turned-fighter Jake Paul has been physically taxing. The match is set for July 20 at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Tyson, who last fought professionally in 2005, sees the fight as an opportunity to shake up the sports world. While some, like former champion Deontay Wilder, express concern for Tyson's safety, Tyson remains confident. Jake Paul, 27, is ready to face Tyson, believing age is irrelevant in the ring. Tyson harbors no ill will toward Paul but warns that once they step into the ring, it's all business. He even hints at the possibility of more fights in the future but wants to focus on this one first.
