Jake Paul-Mike Tyson fight delayed due to boxing legend’s health emergency

The highly anticipated boxing match between Jake Paul and Mike Tyson has been postponed following Tyson’s recent medical scare. Most Valuable Promotions announced the delay, citing Tyson’s need for light training due to an ulcer flare-up. The fight, originally scheduled for July 20 at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, will have a new date announced soon.

“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 stated. He reassured fans that despite the setback, he is in peak physical condition and ready to deliver an unforgettable performance later this year.

“I fully support postponing the event so Mike Tyson has no excuses come fight night,” Paul commented. He emphasized his readiness to face Tyson at his best, promising a sensational finish in their upcoming matchup.

The 57-year-old Tyson experienced a health scare on a recent flight, causing concern among fans and officials. Despite initial reports suggesting the fight would proceed as planned, the delay was deemed necessary to ensure both fighters have equal preparation time.

Some have raised doubts about Tyson’s ability to return to the ring at his age, with concerns about his physical condition. However, Tyson remains determined to showcase his skills and compete at the highest level when the rescheduled match takes place.

The fight, initially set to be streamed on Netflix, has garnered significant attention from fans eagerly awaiting the showdown between the boxing legend and the rising star. Stay tuned for updates on the new date for this highly anticipated bout.
