Other outlets have yet to further confirm the news.
Tyson, 55, returned from retirement in November 2020 for an exhibition match against fellow boxing legend Roy Jones Jr.
Despite his time off and age, Tyson still battled it out to a draw.
Meanwhile, Paul is coming off an exhibition match against other Hall of Fame boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., who outboxed him over eight rounds. Due to the rules of an exhibition match, there was no official winner.
On Sunday, Tyson told The Sun that he already knew when he was returning to the ring – lining up with the rumors he might face Paul next.
“I am going to have a return fight in February and we are pretty skeptical about the opponent, but it will be a really stimulating opponent,” he said.
The former heavyweight champ ruled out competing against the younger Paul brother, Jake, because his family “loves” him. Jake was recently handed a split decision win against former UFC champion Tyron Woodley.
But, according to the rumors, Logan is fair game for Tyson.
Nothing has been officially confirmed.
