Another said: “This doesn’t look good.”

A third fan wrote: “This is honestly so sad to watch.”

But some fans were more positive, with one writing: “Yes go get em!”

And another replied: “@MikeTyson will be 58 years old June 30. He’s still the best to ever step in the Ring. @jakepaul is dead.️”

Tyson most recently fought in 2020 in an exhibition bout with Roy Jones Jr.

His last professional fight was in 2005, when he retired aged 39.
