Joe Rogan, the renowned UFC commentator and podcast host, is not buying into the skepticism surrounding Mike Tyson's upcoming boxing return against Jake Paul. In a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, Rogan dismissed concerns about Tyson's age playing a significant role in the exhibition fight scheduled for July 20.

At 57 years old, Tyson is set to step back into the boxing ring against the much younger Jake Paul, who is nearly three decades his junior. Despite Tyson's long career and notable bouts against legendary fighters like Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield, Rogan believes Tyson's age won't be a decisive factor in the upcoming match.

"People are definitely uninformed," Rogan stated, referring to those questioning Tyson's decision. "You don’t lose that much ability! You have to understand who you’re talking about."

Rogan highlighted Tyson's unique training regimen, including electrical muscular stimulation, which Tyson has been utilizing to rehabilitate injuries and enhance his physical conditioning. This approach, Rogan argues, can yield significant gains and help maintain Tyson's formidable fighting capabilities.

Mike Tyson's legacy as one of boxing's greatest heavyweights precedes him, with his early career knockouts still resonating in the sport's history. Meanwhile, Jake Paul, known for his recent successes in the ring, aims to extend his winning streak and secure a victory against the seasoned Tyson.

Rogan's insights add a different perspective to the ongoing debate about Tyson's age and readiness for the fight. As the date approaches, fans and analysts eagerly await to witness Tyson's return and see if Rogan's confidence in Tyson's abilities proves to be justified.
