Is Mike Tyson fighting Jake Paul? Everything we know

Following the thrilling announcement of a new fight by Jake Paul, the YouTuber who has transitioned into a boxer, against mixed martial artist Mike Perry on July 20, the question on everyone’s lips is: Will his much-anticipated bout with Mike Tyson still take place?

Tyson, with a record of 50-6 with 44 knockouts and Paul, with a record of 9-1 with six knockouts, have been adamant that the exhibition fight between them will happen on a new date of November 15. The reschedule came after the heavyweight legend suffered a medical emergancy on a flight that he later revealed was an ulcer flare-up.

“Despite the postponement, I will be back in training soon. I am grateful to the medical staff that treated me and to MVP, Netflix, and AT&T Stadium for their efforts in finding the best rescheduled date for all parties,” Tyson expressed in a statement. “While we have a new date, the outcome will remain the same whenever we step into the ring. Jake Paul will be knocked out.

With the fight back on, here are the latest information concerning the Tyson-Paul fight.
