Mike Tyson suffers medical emergency on flight


Boxing icon Mike Tyson needed emergency medical attention onboard a flight to Los Angeles, just weeks before his fight with Jake Paul.

The 57-year-old boxer said he felt dizzy and nauseous during the flight from Miami, causing cabin crew to ask if a doctor was onboard to offer medical assistance. 

When the plane landed paramedics boarded to attend to the former heavyweight champion, who is now "doing great" according to his representatives. 

Tyson is due to face YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul in an officially sanctioned bout on July 20, by which time Tyson will have turned 58. 

Tyson retired in 2005 and most recently stepped in the ring against Roy Jones in a 2020 exhibition.
