Mike Tyson‘s former trainer Jeff Fenech believes that Mike Tyson will knock out Jake Paul within two rounds. However, Fenech emphasizes that the upcoming bout is significant beyond just the knockout.

The match is set for eight rounds of two minutes each, unlike the typical three-minute rounds in men’s professional boxing. The fighters will use 14-ounce gloves instead of the usual 10-ounce ones, providing more padding and reducing punch impact.

Despite this, Fenech is confident that Tyson‘s power will be too much for Paul to handle, even at 58 years old.

“I have no doubt if Mike takes it easy and doesn’t try to punch at the same time, if he makes Jake Paul miss, Mike will knock him out in a couple of rounds. One-hundred per cent,” Fenech told Wide World of Sports.
