New Date Set for Tyson vs. Paul Showdown

Former boxing legend Mike Tyson is set to return to the ring to face YouTube star Jake Paul in a highly anticipated match, now rescheduled for November 15. Originally slated for July, the fight was postponed due to health issues faced by the former world heavyweight champion.

Promoters confirmed on Friday that the venue remains unchanged: AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, home to the Dallas Cowboys. The event will be broadcast to 270 million subscribers via the streaming platform Netflix.

Mike Tyson’s Determination and Confidence

Paul announced the new date on the X platform, stating, “New date, same place, same fate.” Mike Tyson, who will turn 58 on June 30, confidently added, “While we have a new date, the result will be the same, regardless of when we fight. I will beat Jake Paul by knockout.”

Despite his recent health issues, Mike Tyson reaffirmed his readiness and determination, expressing gratitude to his medical team and all parties involved in rescheduling the match. “My body is in better general condition than it was in the nineties, and I will soon return to my full exercises,” Mike Tyson stated.


Health Scare and Fight Postponement

Tyson required medical attention during a flight from Miami to Los Angeles last month after experiencing nausea and dizziness. This health scare, just two months before his expected fight with Paul, was due to an ulcer exacerbation, leading doctors to recommend a reduction in his training, which necessitated the postponement.

“Although we had to postpone the fight, I will resume training soon,” Tyson reassured his fans. He expressed gratitude to his supporters for their understanding and promised a triumphant return to the ring.

Concerns from the Boxing Community

The bout, approved by the Texas boxing authorities, will feature Tyson and Paul in an eight-round professional fight, with each round lasting two minutes. Despite Tyson’s confidence, some members of the boxing community, including former heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, have voiced concerns about the potential risks to Tyson’s health.

Tyson, who dominated the heavyweight division in the eighties and nineties, had previously dismissed concerns about his age, insisting he had no reservations about returning to the ring nearly two decades after his last professional fight in 2005, where he lost to Irishman Kevin McBride.
