Jake Paul-Mike Tyson fight delayed, will be rescheduled after Mike’s medical emergency

“I fully support postponing the event so Mike Tyson has no excuses come fight night,” Paul told Netflix.

ARLINGTON, Texas — Everyone waiting to see the Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson fight will have to wait a little longer. The fight has been delayed, Netflix announced Friday. 

The postponement for the fight comes after Tyson had a medical emergency on a flight, where the 57-year-old former heavy weight champ had a ulcer flare-up. The fight will be rescheduled for later this year, according to Netflix. 

“I want to thank my fans around the world for their support and understanding during this time. Unfortunately, due to my ulcer flare-up, I have been advised by my doctor to lighten my training for a few weeks to rest and recover,” Tyson told Netflix. “My body is in better overall shape than it has been since the 1990s and I will be back to my full training schedule soon. Jake Paul, this may have bought you some time, but in the end you will still be knocked out and out of boxing for good. I appreciate everyone’s patience and can’t wait to deliver an unforgettable performance later this year.”

“I fully support postponing the event so Mike Tyson has no excuses come fight night,” Paul told Netflix. “My fans know I don’t want to face Iron Mike at anything but his best, but let there be no mistake – when he steps into the ring with me, I will be ready to claim my W with a sensational finish. Paul vs Tyson will be one for the ages, and I promise to bring my best for this once-in-a-lifetime matchup.”

Previously purchased tickets for Paul vs. Tyson will be honored for the new date, and no action is needed to keep current tickets and current seat locations, Netflix said in its announcement. At the press conference in Arlington, officials said the fight had broken the all-time record in the state of Texas for sales in a combat sporting event.
