Jake Paul & Mike Tyson

Following an unexpected medical incident during a flight, Mike Tyson provided an update on his condition via X. Despite his recent health scare, Tyson remains steadfast in his determination to face off against Jake Paul in the boxing ring. "Feeling 100% now," Tyson assured fans, adding a confident jab, "even though I don’t need to be to beat Jake Paul."

 

The YouTube sensation-turned-boxer, Jake Paul, wasted no time in quashing rumors of a potential cancellation of their upcoming bout. Taking to social media, Paul addressed the speculation head-on, stating, "You love to make s–t up before knowing the facts for clicks / likes. Nothing changed #PaulTyson."

 

Here's the twist: Tyson, aged 57, encountered a bout of nausea and dizziness attributed to an ulcer flare-up while en route from Miami to Los Angeles. His spokesperson informed Page Six that Tyson "became nauseous and dizzy due to an ulcer flare-up 30 minutes before landing." Fortunately, Tyson received prompt medical attention, and he's reportedly "doing great," expressing gratitude to the attending medical staff.

 

Scheduled to be aired live on Netflix, the highly anticipated showdown between Tyson and Paul is slated to take place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on July 20. Tyson, speaking at a recent press conference, exuded enthusiasm for the match, deeming it a "no-brainer." "He’s the new up-and-coming guy on the scene," Tyson remarked, eager to make waves in the sporting world once again.

 

Paul echoed Tyson's sentiments regarding the significance of their clash, dubbing it "quite literally the biggest fight of the 21st century." Emphasizing the bout's global appeal, Paul highlighted its reach to "700 million households," a testament to its monumental scale.

 

With Tyson boasting an illustrious record of 50-6-2, including an impressive 44 knockouts, and Paul holding a respectable 9-1 record with six knockouts, the stakes are undeniably high. Despite his comparative lack of experience, Paul remains unfazed, boldly declaring, "I’m a natural-born heavyweight. I’m gonna show Mike who has more power. I think he’s underestimating me, I think everyone else is underestimating me."
