The hype for the Chris Brown versus Soulja Boy fight just keeps increasing. Yesterday (Jan. 12), Mike Tyson told a TMZ reporter that the fight will last longer than the first round.

"How many rounds do you think it'll take Chris Brown to knock out Soulja Boy?" the reporter asked Iron Mike. Initially, Tyson was hesitant to say anything, simply replying, "Come to the fight."

Eventually, the reporter presses Tyson again, asking if he thinks Breezy can knock out Soulja in the first round. The 50-year-old Brooklyn, N.Y. native replied, "It's gonna be a tough one. I don't think it'll be a first-round knockout. They gonna be scrappin'." You can watch the video courtesy of TMZ right here.

Additionally, the reporter asked if Tyson, a known Donald Trump supporter, plans to attend the inauguration coming up. "I'd love to," Tyson responded.

Tyson's fight prediction comes a few days after he announced via Instagram he'll be training C. Breezy for the upcoming boxing match.

“So it’s confirmed... I’m training Chris, he chose me as his trainer to take on Soulja Boy,” Tyson says. “And Soulja Boy, what the fuck you talkin’ bout, ‘Only thing I’mma teach him is how to bite somebody’s ear off.’ Yeah that’s right, I’mma teach him every dirty trick in the book to knock you out, ‘cuz I’m not gonna teach him how to run.” Tyson even recorded a diss record aimed at SB.
