Mike Tyson has vowed to knock out Jake Paul after their fight was rescheduled this week.

The clash between the former undisputed world heavyweight champion and YouTuber-turned-boxer has been postponed after Tyson suffered a flare-up of an ulcer during a flight.

His team insisted that he had made a full recovery, but medical professionals said that the original date would be too soon for him.

It was announced that the new date for their clash is now November 15 at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas as opposed to July 20.

Mike Tyson vs Jake Paul to get new date with pro fight in jeopardy

“New date for Jake’s wake,” Tyson said after the news was revealed, with Paul sending a threatening message in response.

However, he has issued another message to his opponent, with both fighters now having to wait another five months to meet.

“Different date, same fate. Imma knock out Jake Paul,” he said in a video on .

Following the rescheduling, Tyson declared the medical setback won’t affect his preparations, as he stated: “Although we had to postpone the fight, I will resume training shortly.

“I am thankful to the medical staff that treated me and to MVP, Netflix, and AT&T Stadium for working diligently to find the best reschedule date for all parties.

“While we have a new date, the result will be the same no matter when we fight. Jake Paul is getting knocked out.

The original date of 20 July was cancelled given Tyson’s health problems relating to ulcers with the fight now to go ahead mid November.

A new date has been confirmed for the long-awaited return of the legendary Mike Tyson to the ring as he is set to face YouTuber Jake Paul with the fight initially scheduled to take place on July 20 of this year at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas (home of the Dallas Cowboys).

Tyson, suffered an ulcer flare-up during a flight from Miami to Los Angeles recently and this medical situation prompted the event organizers to prioritize his well-being and reschedule the fight. Both fighters remained committed for the bout to happen and there were never any plans in place for canceling the fight.

Mike Tyson vs Jake Paul to get new date with pro fight in jeopardy

“I fully support postponing the event so Mike Tyson has no excuses come fight night,” said Jake Paul. The YouTuber, who has made waves in the boxing world with his unorthodox journey from social media stardom to professional fighting, expressed confidence in his abilities. “When he steps into the ring with me, I will be ready to claim my W with a sensational finish.”

There was brief speculation that another boxer may have been drafted in to replace ‘Iron Mike’ with Roy Jones Jr.’s name being linked but after a positive prognosis regarding his health situation, it will be the former heavyweight champion who steps into the ring in Dallas on 15 November with the fight set to be broadcast live on the popular streaming platform Netflix.

Jake Paul didn’t like what Mike Tyson had to say about their new fight date.

The two, initially scheduled to fight on July 20 at the AT&T Stadium, now look forward to November 15. While there is enough time for the two to train and gear up, ‘Iron Mike’ is not shying away from verbal jabs on social media. But it didn’t sit well with the American influencer.

Tyson, 57, had shared the new poster along with the new date on his Instagram handle. The fight has been pushed to November due to the former heavyweight champion suffering from an ulcer flare as he flew from Miami to Los Angeles. Despite the fans’ concerns and protests, Tyson was committed to the fight and even wrote, “New date for Jake’s wake.”

Paul, 27, then shared this unusual trash-talking attempt by Tyson and compared it with his last rival, Nate Diaz. The former UFC fighter hd created the buzz for their fight last August but failed to replicate the same in the boxing ring. The influencer-turned-boxer believed a similar fate awaited ‘Kid Dynamite’. He wrote, “Is he the definition of all talk? cause it seems like it… this Nate Diaz type of sh*t talk (meaningless).”

Following this, the Cleveland native mocked Tyson’s growing age, who will be 58 this June 30. Moreover, he explained that Tyson had spoiled his plans, which caused an outburst. Paul added. “Take ur time sir (not tht you have much of it). This a*s whopping has patience. Main reason I’m mad is because you f*cked up my St Barths plans.”

Lastly, Paul, at 9-1, asked Tyson’s social media team to deliver his messages to him. He declared, “And I know you don’t use your socials so to Tyson’s team y’all are some h*es too and deliver my message for me.” Previously, Paul had also made his desire public to knockout ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’. But it seemed Tyson also harbored similar intentions.

Tyson, who last fought a professional fight in 2005, admitted he would resume training shortly. In an official statement, he extended his thanks to the medical staff that treated him and to MVP and Netflix for rearranging the arena for an alternative date. The 50-6 record holder then disclosed how he saw the fight’s outcome. He declared, “While we have a new date, the result will be the same no matter when we fight. Jake Paul is getting knocked out.”

Notably, the Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano rematch also remains on the rescheduled card as the co-main event. The two will fight it out once again, with the undisputed junior welterweight championship on the line. It remains to be seen how Tyson’s health and growing age affect the fight. The fans will also be excited to witness whether Serrano will have her redemption.

Mike Tyson and Jake Paul will announce a new date for their controversial fight on Friday as a cloud remains over the event.

WBN reported that Tyson’s fight with Paul would likely hit the scrap heap following health issues involving the former heavyweight champion. As the pair prepare to inform fans that the show goes on, whether Paul vs Tyson will be a professional contest hangs in the balance – if it does go ahead.

“The Baddest Man on the Planet” had to postpone a July 20 date following a stomach ulcer flare-up, leaving his YouTube opponent scouting for other options. Meanwhile, World Boxing News sought advice from medical experts on Tyson’s stomach issues and now believes Tyson’s competing in a professional capacity is too dangerous. One false punch in the wrong place, specifically the midriff, could be life-threatening for Tyson. As previously explained, the ulcer can rupture and pour stomach liquid into Tyson’s abdominal wall, causing significant damage that would require immediate surgery.

This scenario means there could be some provisions to the rules that push the contest towards an exhibition.

The fact that Tyson is 58 was already a massive factor in the fight facing staunch opposition. Now that the Netflix event faced a delay on medical grounds due to problems with a nearly sixty-year-old competitor, the writing is on the wall. Fans wanted Tyson pulled from the fight last month, even before the ulcer incident on a flight from Miami to Florida. But once Tyson needed attention from paramedics, it was clear the former heavyweight champion’s ailment was no joke.

The only question is, will the fight get over the line when months remain? If Paul decides to go for another few weeks of publicity with a new date, there are still no guarantees over Tyson’s health. Even if most Valuable Promotions promise the fight will happen, the reaction to Paul fighting Tyson with a severe stomach problem won’t be positive. Paul got away with it before, as Tyson was supposedly in great shape and free from any issues. But now that Tyson has a serious condition worsened by impact, it’s hard to see how the fight is viable.

Should Tyson be injured badly in the fight, the lawsuit from Mike Tyson’s family alone would cost more than the entire event. It doesn’t seem to be an exercise worth undertaking when a boxing legend‘s health is in the balance. Not to mention that boxing fans would never forgive Paul and that his career in the sport would effectively be over. Therefore, eventually pulling the plug looks to be the only real decision to make.

Reports that Paul will face Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. or Darren Till, both scheduled for the undercard, are now prominent on social media. It’s undoubtedly possible that Paul will bump either to the main event but when backed into a corner later down the line so he can keep Tyson in the background in the hope that he’s cleared to fight – even with modified rules.

Don’t hold your breath for Paul vs. Tyson ever getting over the line as the Texas Department of Licence and Regulation – plus the World Boxing Council; both told WBN they are monitoring Mike Tyson’s health.

  • Mike Tyson was flying from Miami to LA when he felt ‘nauseous and dizzy’
  • Passengers were asked if a doctor was on board before paramedics rushed onMike Tyson suffered a medical emergency during a flight from Miami to Los Angeles on Sunday, his representatives have confirmed.

    The former heavyweight champion, 57, became nauseous and dizzy, forcing flight staff to ask passengers if there was a doctor on board to provide assistance.

    Paramedics boarded the plane, which had already been delayed by two hours in Miami because of the heat, once it touched down in Los Angeles to give treatment.

    It comes just two months before the boxing legend is due to fight YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul in Dallas.

    ‘Thankfully Mr. Tyson is doing great,’ his representatives told The New York Post.

    Mike Tyson to fight Jake Paul in sanctioned heavyweight bout - Jamaica  Observer

    ‘He became nauseous and dizzy due to an ulcer flare up 30 minutes before landing.

    ‘He is appreciative to the medical staff that were there to help him.’

    Typical symptoms of an ulcer flare up include nausea and vomiting, bloating, belching and gas pain, as well as chest pain and fatigue.

    It comes after In Touch first revealed on Monday morning that Tyson ‘had some kind of medical emergency on the plane and paramedics boarded’.

    Sources claim the cabin crew ‘issued an announcement asking for a doctor 30 minutes before landing and the message even came on everyone’s screens.’

    ‘He was in first class, but we were an exit row,’ an eyewitness added.

    ‘They asked us to stay on the plane and landed so paramedics could enter. [The stewardess] said something like, “He’s a really important passenger so we wanna make sure he’s OK.” I knew it was him, but I just mouthed the words “Mike Tyson” and she nodded her head yes.’

    Once the plane landed at LAX, there was another delay of around 25 minutes while the paramedics treated Tyson.

    It’s also claimed Tyson was more than happy to pose for photos with fans at Miami airport as he returned to the airport’s VIP lounge once his flight was delayed.

    Tyson will be 58 on July 20, when the fight against Paul is set for AT&T Stadium – the home of the Dallas Cowboys.

    The fight has been marred by criticism in recent weeks, particularly at the vast age gap between the two fighters.

    ‘I don’t see too many people critical about it. Look at this,’ Tyson said at a press conference earlier this month..

    When a reporter suggested there were critics, Tyson said, ‘Who? Name me somebody. You? Who?’

    The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation is sanctioning the fight as a professional bout, but it will be eight two-minute rounds instead of 10 or 12 rounds lasting three minutes each.

    The gloves will be heavier (14 ounces instead of 10), which is supposed to reduce the power of punches.

    Tyson retired in 2005, but most recently fought in an exhibition in November 2020 against Roy Jones in California, which wouldn’t declare it a pro fight.

    Tyson was mostly annoyed by the scene and the questions, including when asked what it meant to have a chance to fill AT&T Stadium.

    ‘I was doing this years ago, so this is nothing new to me,’ said Tyson, who won 50 fights with 44 knockouts before retiring. ‘This is new to this young boy over here.’

The You Tuber shocked many, including Tyson, when he went the distance with 50-0 boxing legend in their much-hyped exhibition in 2021.

Before the fight, Tyson, who is now set to face Logan’s brother Jake Paul on July 20, appeared on Logan’s podcast and told him to his face that May weather would ‘kick his ass’.

As the You Tuber survived all eight rounds though, the boxing legend admitted his prediction was way off.

Tyson told Paul on FaceTime after the bout: “You kicked that n***a ass, I was wrong, I was wrong, you kicked ass.

“You kicked ass, there’s no doubt about it, you kicked ass.”

Paul replied: “I love you Mike.”

To which Tyson added: “I’m proud of you n***a, I’m proud of you.”

Later in the conversation, Paul said: “He was quick Mike, he was fast.”

Tyson replied: “He wasn’t that fast, you got him with those punches.”

Tyson was genuinely surprised by the display from the YouTuber against the boxing legend, which may lead some people to thinking it’s a surprise he’s agreed to take on Jake.

However, Tyson made it clear in other comments about Logan’s fight with Mayweather that he saw Floyd’s weight disadvantage as his undoing.

In contract, Tyson will have a natural size advantage over Jake.

“I think Floyd should keep on trying,” Tyson said, “I don’t think he should fight a f***ing cruiserweight.

“I think he should continue fighting guys his own weight. What the f*** is he doing? Fight [Manny] Pacquiao again or something, keep in shape.

“It was harder than Floyd anticipated, I believe.

“Was he boxing a cruiserweight? How did he train for this, with experience?

“I believe when [Logan] was hitting him, he was hurting him a little bit because he’s not a 160-pound guy. [Logan is] a 190-pounder. I think that’s a heavyweight. 190-pounds to me is a heavyweight.

“I think Mayweather can learn from this one, fight guys more in his own category as far as weight is concerned.

“I think he’d make more money if he fought Pacquiao again. Floyd didn’t make the guy chase him. You make the big guy chase you.

“He needs to fight a guy at more of his weight division, 155-pounds or 160-pounds.”

 

Jake Paul has revealed he has piled on the pounds to prevent Mike Tyson dominating him physically in their boxing fight.

YouTube star Paul will take on heavyweight legend Tyson in Texas in July in a controversial boxing fight which will go on both boxers’ records. The fight will be held over eight two-minute rounds after Tyson, who will turn 58 before the first bell, requested the shortened sessions.

And the social media sensation has admitted he doesn’t want to be bullied in the ring having previously fought at cruiserweight.

“Everything has been good but it’s been a little transition moving to heavyweight. I definitely needed to put on weight so that I’m able to compete with Mike Tyson and so that he’s not able to throw me around in the ring,” he told TMZ Sports.

“We’ve been sparring heavyweights and eating more food. Mike Tyson has called me fat but I believe fat will turn into muscle and come fight night I believe I will be able to move and dance around the ring like a true heavyweight.”

But Tyson has taken a less flattering view of Paul, claiming his opponent looks “fat”. “I don’t know if he’s in his prime. He’s fat. He should be lean and mean and he’s fat and funky. I saw him with his shirt off though and he’s fat,” he said.

Paul responded by reminding Tyson of his shock defeat by Buster Douglas in 1990. “Hey, Buster Douglas was fat. Am I right? I know, but you know Buster Douglas, I’m better.

I’m going to end you quicker than he did and you’ll remember that forever,” he said.

“You started me off. I appreciate that. Mike, I love you. I love you like a father loves his son, but I must discipline you. You’re going down, man.”

 

The Mike Tyson-Jake Paul fight is nearly here. In less than two months, the former heavyweight champion Tyson will face off against influencer-turned-boxer Paul in one of the biggest boxing matches of the year.

    Sporting News: Tyson by decision

    David Fletcher writes: “Due to the lack of experience of Paul’s opponents and the fear of his power, no one has dared bring the fight to Paul. Tyson is incredibly aggressive and is highly likely to do so in multiple rounds. Even if he doesn’t get the knockout, forcing Paul into retreat once he gets a taste of Tyson’s power is quite possible.”

    Fury chose his namesake when asked on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani for his pick. Prior to his title fight with Oleksandr Usyk, Fury said he’s “over the moon” for the Tyson-Paul bout.

    “If Mike Tyson hits anybody, I don’t care if he’s 90, he’s going to knock them out cold,” Fury said. “It’s ‘Iron Mike Tyson.’ He’s the baddest man on the planet… Paul’s obviously very experienced now, he’s had a lot of tough fights, he’s had a lot of good fights… but obviously I have to back Mike Tyson, I’m named after the legend and I’ll back him as he always backs me.”

    The two-time former heavyweight champion boxer weighed in on the fight on “The Jonathan Ross Show” this week.

    “The only thing I’m worried about is father time,” Joshua said. “That’s one thing that’s never been beaten and Tyson, he’s older now. I pray that he comes out healthy but I think Jake Paul (wins) because of youth. That’s the only thing, because of the youth.”

Mike Tyson‘s former trainer Jeff Fenech believes that Mike Tyson will knock out Jake Paul within two rounds. However, Fenech emphasizes that the upcoming bout is significant beyond just the knockout.

The match is set for eight rounds of two minutes each, unlike the typical three-minute rounds in men’s professional boxing. The fighters will use 14-ounce gloves instead of the usual 10-ounce ones, providing more padding and reducing punch impact.

Despite this, Fenech is confident that Tyson‘s power will be too much for Paul to handle, even at 58 years old.
