It comes after Paul, 26, took Floyd Mayweather, 44, the distance in their exhibition bout over eight rounds in June, where no winner was declared.

And Tyson, 55, came out of retirement for a similar spectacle against Roy Jones Jr, 52, last November, which ended a draw.

Rogan said on his podcast: “The fact that Logan Paul wants to box him, it’s like wow.

“I can’t believe they’re really going to do that. That kid’s going to get hit for sure.

“Floyd was hitting him. Floyd has only taken a small amount of time off and he had those exhibition fights.

“Floyd has been pretty active as a boxer, he fought Pacquaio recently and that Japanese kickboxing guy.

“He was just fighting guys like Conor McGregor that we knew Floyd was going to beat them, but he was still active.

“Mike hadn’t been active forever. He got fat, but he’s a different kind of person. It’s going to be interesting to see what Logan can do to keep away from him.

“The only thing Logan has on his side is youth.”

Paul has boxed only three times before, firstly in a white collar bout against British online rival KSI, 28, which ended in a draw in 2018.

But a year later, they turned professional and the American lost the rematch by scrappy split-decision.

Only this year did Paul return, for the shock exhibition against Mayweather, who gave away TWO STONE.

Meanwhile Tyson confirmed he will fight again with his second comeback bout set for February.

Paul recently admitted tentative talks with Iron Mike had taken place in the past, but it was not a fight he was heavily considering.

Although after seeing the reaction of fans, who tipped Tyson to demolish the man 29 YEARS his junior, the social media influencer is ready to prove doubters wrong.

Paul told SecondsOut: “As of now there’s nothing – I mean, look we’ve been kind of talking about it, it’s been kind of possible for a little bit.

“It’s been pinned. Then there’s rumours started circling, whatever we didn’t say anything and then it got confirmed that it wasn’t happening.

“I was like reading the tweets and the social commentary and everyone was saying, ‘Tyson would f***ing kill Logan’.

“So a fight that I initially hadn’t even considered, is now like people actually don’t think that I would win, this is actually offensive.

“And I started getting upset and now I’m kind of considering it just to shut people the f*** up.

“I find it absurd that people don’t think I can beat Mike Tyson.”
