Will the fight actually happen, and if so, will you watch ... Do you care? Predictions are welcome.

I'm not an aficionado of pugilism in the squared circle, but aren't all these celebrity matches just fixed cash grabs? They'll spar for a few rounds and then someone takes a dive. I know everyone wants to see Tyson beat Paul into hamburger but I doubt it's gonna happen.

Nor am I.

Yeah, I tend to think the celebrity matches are. However, I wouldn't classify this fight as merely a celebrity match.

If they fight, I don't see Tyson allowing it to go a few rounds. I also don't think he'd take a dive.

I read Tyson already has his legal team ready to financially crush Paul if he backs out. Mike needs the payday, one way or the other.

Jake might be younger but Mike has the experience. Mike will hit Jake so hard his followers will drop like Sonic's rings.

Do you think the fight will take place?

If Mike's lawyers have anything to say about it, yes. Will it be an honest all out brawl? Probably not. I'm sure it will come down to an exhibition match where they decide who will win months before it takes place and both will cash in on a hefty payday.

Given the amount of money, I can see both Mike and Jake agreeing to a decided outcome. Jake more likely than Mike, however.

Nevertheless, with this fight being Netflix's entry to live fighting events I don't see them risking their future hosting a fixed fight.

Mike will not take a dive. No way. If he gets in there and starts getting pi@@ed and the old Mike comes out Jake's in trouble 😂

That was my first thought. Then, upon further consideration, I had to ask myself why did I believe that, especially given the probable purse, win or lose. I've also heard Mike needs a payday.

I honestly don't see Mike coming in any other way, especially given who he's fighting.
