New date confirmed for Tyson vs Paul

Jake Paul X

Mike Tyson will fight Jake Paul on November 15 in Arlington Texas.

The date was originally scheduled for July 20, but was postponed due to an ulcer flare up for Mike Tyson.

Medical professionals had recommended Tyson, 57, does minimal light training over the next few weeks as he recovers before returning to full training with no limitations.

"Although we had to postpone the fight, I will resume training shortly," Tyson said.
"While we have a new date, the result will be the same no matter when we fight. Jake Paul is getting knocked out."

'Iron Mike', who has a 50-6 record with 44 knockouts, was one of the most feared heavyweights in history but has not fought a professional fight since 2005.

YouTuber-turned-boxer Paul is 30 years his junior and has a 9-1 boxing record.

The AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, which is the home of the NFL team Dallas Cowboys, has 80,000 seats.

This will be the first fight live streamed on Netflix. 

It's been sanctioned as a professional fight with eight two-minute rounds, and the outcome will affect both of their professional records.

Jake Paul holds a professional boxing record of 9-1, with six wins coming by way of knockout. Mike Tyson is 50-6 in professional boxing fights, with 44 wins coming by way of knockout.
