Jake Paul Announces He Is Fighting An American Boxing LEGEND—Time, Place, And Rules REVEALED!

Boxing upstart Jake Paul, the brother of Logan Paul, has announced that he is fighting American heavyweight boxing legend Mike Tyson.

That’s right—the two will square off in Arlington Texas on July 20, 2024, and the highly anticipated event will be live-streamed via Netflix.

This is huge for 58-year-old Mike Tyson, who has not been in the ring since 2005.

Tyson must undergo several tests to fight the younger Paul including an EEG and an EKG test.

The updated and revised rules for the fight are as follows:

According to Daily Mail:

As it stands, the undercard for the bout between Paul and Tyson has not yet been discussed.

Speaking about the undercard, Tela Mange, Communications Manager for the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations, said it’s not ‘unusual’ to secure a date and venue before proposing the fighters.

Boxing fans speculated as to who would win the looming battle, with many hinting that Tyson would clean house and crush Paul during the bout.

USA Today added:

Although the fight has not been given an official designation yet, reports indicate that the fight is leaning towards being an exhibition.

USA Today’s Josh Peter mentions that San Antonio boxing promoter Cameron Davies claimed that he has “spoken to a key member of the Texas Combatants Sports staff and is ’99 percent’ certain the Tyson-Paul fight will be classified as an exhibition.”
