A report from The Sun recently claimed that the 55-year-old boxer had reached a $46 million agreement to fight Paul.
The former heavyweight champion fought his last bout against Roy Jones Jr in November of 2020, ending in a split draw. Paul served on the undercard of the match, going on to defeat former NBA player Nate Robinson with a knockout.
Now, responding to news The Sun’s article on Twitter, Tyson appeared to have little knowledge of an agreement with Paul.
“This is new to me,” he wrote. “I saw Jake in St. Barths and he never mentioned it.”
