Mike Tyson and Jake Paul’s Netflix Boxing Match Delayed by Tyson Ulcer Flare-Up

The highly anticipated boxing match between Jake Paul and Mike Tyson, set to be livestreamed on Netflix, has been postponed from its original July 20 date due to Tyson’s recent ulcer flare-up. The event’s promoter, Most Valuable Promotions, announced that the new fight date will be revealed by June 7. The bout, initially announced in March, will still take place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, later in 2024.

In a statement, Most Valuable Promotions expressed regret over the delay, citing Tyson’s health as the top priority. The recommendation for Tyson is to undergo minimal to light training in the following weeks before returning to full training without restrictions. Both fighters, Jake Paul and Mike Tyson, have agreed on the importance of equal training time to ensure they can compete at their best level.

Tyson is expected to resume his full training schedule in the upcoming weeks and is eager to step back into the ring. Netflix also shared an update on social media regarding the postponed fight, informing fans about the situation.

Tyson expressed gratitude for the support from his fans during this time and assured them of his return to peak performance. Paul, on the other hand, voiced his support for the postponement to allow Tyson to prepare adequately. He promised an unforgettable performance in the rescheduled matchup.

For fans who have already purchased tickets for the Paul vs. Tyson fight, Most Valuable Promotions confirmed that the tickets will be honored for the new date. Refunds are available for those unable to attend the rescheduled event at their original point of purchase.

The showdown between these two boxing icons promises to be a memorable event once it takes place, with both fighters gearing up to deliver a spectacular performance in the ring.
