Jake Paul and Mike Tyson recently wrapped up their second press conference with a faceoff that starkly contrasted the cordial tone of their previous event in New York.

Paul and Tyson are set to clash in an eight-round heavyweight matchup on July 20 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The event will be streamed live on Netflix for all subscribers.

Initially thought to be an exhibition, last month's announcement confirmed that the fight will follow professional rules. 'The Problem Child' has noticeably bulked up in preparation to face the boxing icon, who, despite his age, remains in remarkable condition.

Following their amicable encounter at the New York event, Paul and Tyson's demeanor took a sharper turn during their second meeting in Texas. As they faced off, 'The Problem Child' attempted to intimidate Tyson, signaling a gun firing at his opponent. Despite Paul's efforts, 'Iron Mike' remained unfazed, even turning his back to diffuse the tension.

Fans responded to Tyson's composed behavior in front of a charged-up Paul with a variety of reactions, including some suggesting that the YouTuber-turned-boxer humiliated himself at the event.

One fan wrote:

"Mike sees him as a child that needs a good whooping."

Another wrote:

"How is he not embarrassed? Lol this dude is damn near 60."

Despite the hype surrounding the event, the bout between Paul and Tyson has ignited substantial criticism from fans and pundits alike. A significant portion of this backlash revolves around the notable 31-year age difference between the two fighters and 'Iron Mike's' lengthy hiatus from active competition.

Michael Bisping discusses Jake Paul and Mike Tyson's confusion over "body count" question from young fan

Michael Bisping recently reacted to a child's question at the Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson press conference held in New York. In an unexpected turn of events, a child approached the microphone and posed a rather ill-suited inquiry to both boxers:

"Who do you think got a higher body count? What's your body count, Jake? Jake, do you think yours is higher?"

During a recent episode of his Believe You Me podcast, the UFC Hall of Famer shared his thoughts on the teenage fan's question and humorously proposed that the youngster should face consequences for it:

"We have a video of the prime example of a typical Jake Paul fan. I will say this: this kid, I don't advocate beating kids. If you're a mother or father, you shouldn't beat your kids. Violence is not the answer, but this little sh*t needs a slap!"
