Jake Paul's boxing fight with Mike Tyson postponed amid recent health scare for former heavyweight champion

Jake Paul’s massive clash with former world heavyweight boxing champion, Mike Tyson, slated to take place on July 20. in Arlington, Texas, has officially been postponed to a later date, after a recent health scare for the former ahead of the matchup, set to be broadcast on Netflix.

Earlier this week, speculation was rife regarding Brooklyn veteran, Tyson’s ability to compete in a professional bout with Paul – already booked for July, after a recent medical emergency on a flight from Miami to Los Angeles called the former heavyweight boxing champion’s health into question.

“The upcoming highly anticipated boxing match between Jake Paul and Mike Tyson will unfortunately be postponed,” The statement read. “During a follow up consultation on Thursday with medical professionals on his recent ulcer flare up, the recommendation is for Mike Tyson to do minimal to light training over the next few weeks and then return to full training with no limitations.”

“Both Mike and Jke are in agreement that is it only fair to ensure that both athletes have equal training time to prepare for this important match and are able to compete at the highest level. The health and well-being of athletes is our top priority, and we fully support Mike in taking the necessary time to allow him to perform at the level he expects of himself.”
