Paul v Tyson fight date: Boxing match rescheduled

Jake Paul’s boxing match with former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson has been rescheduled for November 15 at the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium in Texas.

The crossover bout for the YouTuber-turned-fighter and the boxing icon was postponed a week ago because of an “ulcer flare-up” suffered by Tyson on a flight.

“Although we had to postpone the fight, I will resume training shortly,” said Tyson, who is 30 years Paul’s senior at 57.

“I am thankful to the medical staff who treated me. While we have a new date, the result will be the same no matter when we fight: Jake Paul is getting knocked out.”

Undisputed women’s light-welterweight world champion Katie Taylor’s rematch with Puerto Rico’s Amanda Serrano will be the co-main headline event.

Tyson’s plight caused paramedics to be called when the aircraft landed. Writing on social media afterwards, he wrote: “Now feeling 100%, even though I don’t need to be to beat Jake Paul.”

Paul v Tyson: ‘One for the ages’

Tyson has not fought in an official bout since 2003, while rookie Paul – better known as a social media personality – has tended to face faded athletes from sports outside of boxing.

“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 said after the postponement.

“Paul vs Tyson will be one for the ages, and I promise to bring my best for this once-in-a-lifetime match-up.”

Mike Tyson ‘in good shape’

Tyson added that he had been advised to “lighten” his training for “a few weeks”. “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,” he said.

“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.”
