Here's what we know about the fight so far.
When is Mike Tyson fighting Logan Paul?
Mike Tyson has broken his silence in regards to the upcoming fight between him and Jake Paul.
After reports emerged that the two had reached an agreement over a multi-million pound deal.
Despite their being a huge gap in age and experience, the former heavyweight king has now clarified the situation, posting on social media:
"This is new to me. I saw Jake in St. Barths and he never mentioned it".
After spending time together on Iron Mike's Hotboxin' podcast, Jake Paul showed his admiration for the boxing icon, calling him 'the greatest of all time'.
"When I sat with Mike Tyson on his podcast, bro, he’s so smart and wise and he was sitting next to me for like 20 minutes just preaching knowledge" Jake said back in December.
Mike Tyson and Logan Paul are reportedly set to fight in February 2022.
Tyson has previously claimed he would be happy to fight either of the Paul brothers - Logan's younger sibling Jake is also a social media star-turned boxer.
"That is the fight for the money. Those are the money-making fights, those guys got 35 million people to watch," Tyson said last year.
"Yes. Hell, I would fight them. They would fight me. That would make a lot of money. Hundred million dollars, they do anything, they don’t mind getting beat up for a hundred million dollars."
Where is the fight between Mike Tyson and Logan Paul taking place?
A location for the fight is yet to be confirmed.
In November 2020, Tyson fought Roy Jones Jr. at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
Meanwhile, Logan Paul faced off with Floyd Mayweather in June 2021 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida.
Is Mike Tyson fighting Logan's brother, Jake Paul?
Fans were excited after reports emerged claiming that Mike Tyson and Jake Paul verbally agreed to stage an exhibition clash this year.

Talking about the agreement for the Jake Paul fight, Tyson said: “It was all word of mouth and stuff, I don’t know," Tyson said on an episode of the FULL SEND podcast.
