New date set for Mike Tyson-Jake Paul fight


New date set for Mike Tyson-Jake Paul fight

Jake Paul and Mike Tyson have officially settled on a new date for their highly anticipated boxing match, previously scheduled for July 20, which will now take place on Nov. 15.

Tyson previously had to delay the event due to a medical flare up with an ulcer that forced him to pause training for the time being.

The fight — taking place at AT&T Stadium in Dallas — is expected to be contested over eight two-minute rounds and is now sandwiched between two Cowboys home games on Nov. 10 and Nov. 18.

“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,” Mike Tyson said according to a press release.

“While we have a new date, the result will be the same no matter when we fight. Jake Paul is getting knocked out. On Friday, November 15, watch this in-person at AT&T Stadium or live on Netflix.”

“Our team has worked diligently with all parties involved to reschedule this monumental fight to a date that ensures both Jake Paul and Mike Tyson are fully prepared, with equal training time, as well as allowing us to keep the event at AT&T stadium in the midst of the Cowboys season,” said Nakisa Bidarian, Co-Founder of Most Valuable Promotions.

“We appreciate the outstanding dedication, collaboration, and flexibility of our partners at Netflix and AT&T Stadium. Paul vs. Tyson is the most cross generational sporting event in history, and we are committed to providing fans worldwide with this unforgettable night of boxing, live globally on Netflix. We look forward to seeing everyone on Friday, November 15 for a showdown that will be talked about for generations to come.”

Tyson, who will be 58 at the end of June, has been training for the bout since it was announced in early March.

Paul on the other hand has been extremely active as a boxer, fighting once already in 2024 and three times in the past 10 months.

Many have been concerned about Tyson’s fitness for the bout, as Paul is in impressive shape while the boxing legend, Tyson, hasn’t fought professionally since 2005.

The internet erupted when Tyson posted videos of himself doing shuttle run drills while getting into shape for the bout.

Despite all of this, Tyson-Paul is indeed a sanctioned bout according to the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations (TDLR).

For now, it does not seem that the ulcer flare-up will affect this fight’s status going into Nov.

Fans who already purchased tickets and cannot attend the bout now scheduled for Nov. 15 are eligible for refunds, the promotion announced.
