Logan told YouTube channel Seconds Out that it would pain him to see the 55-year-old ‘sitting on the floor’ if they were to agree to a match.
He said: ‘As of now there’s nothing. I mean, we’ve been kinda talking about it.
‘And then these rumours started circulating, we didn’t say anything, then it got confirmed that it wasn’t happening.
‘Then I was reading the tweets and everyone was saying “Mike Tyson would f****** kill Logan”.
‘So a fight that I initially hadn’t even considered, now people actually don’t think I’d win, this is offensive.

‘Now I’m kind of considering it, just to shut people the f*** up. But what’s the f****** win here? I prove everyone wrong and go, “yeah I did it”.

Talking to a group of reporters, Logan added that he is hesitant to have the fight as it would not be ‘cool’ to ‘beat up an old man’.
He said: ‘Mike Tyson’s too old, no? What happens if I beat Mike Tyson? I beat up an old man, that’s not cool.

Answering a reporter who doubted Logan could beat Tyson, he added: ‘I don’t give a f***, he’s too old.
“We saw it with Floyd, there’s no reason I should’ve been able to last. He’s aging.
‘Father time takes a toll on everyone and Tyson’s 55. What happens? I go in there and knock him out for what? For what?’
