Jake Paul expects his fight with ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson to be the most watched in combat sports history. In fact, ‘The Problem Child’ anticipates that “hundreds of millions” will tune in.

Paul’s scrap with the former unified heavyweight world champion has received its fair share of criticism, most of it surrounding the 30+ year age gap between the YouTuber and his iconic opposition. Still, the event is expected the emanate from a sold-out AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas with one of the most stacked lineups of the year.

“The global viewership could be in the hundreds of millions like you said,” said Paul. “It’s wild. It doesn’t make any sense, but the fact that Netflix is a part of this is the perfect piece of the puzzle. It makes this trifecta of Netflix’s audience, my audience, and Mike Tyson’s audience” (h/t MMA Mania).

In a first for the streaming giant, Netflix will broadcast the Paul vs. Tyson card live at no additional charge to its existing 260 million subscribers around the world, making Paul’s prediction a real possibility.
