Jake Paul to Face Boxing Legend Mike Tyson in Epic Showdown at AT&T Stadium

According to a Netflix announcement released on Thursday, social media star Jake Paul is set to fight former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson on July 20 at AT&T Stadium in Texas, where the fight is set to take place.

The streaming platform will help fans watch the fight between 27-year-old Paul and 57-year-old Tyson, who hasn’t fought since a drawn bout between him and Roy Jones Jr. in 2020.

Netflix has posted a short video trailer showing Paul getting off a helicopter on a rooftop and then coming face-to-face with Tyson as he gets off the helicopter.

Four years ago, Jake Paul turned professional in boxing after building a significant fan following as a YouTube influencer.

He has had nine victories in the last ten fights, including six knockouts, against mainly undistinguished opponents. He has only lost once, and that was to Tommy Fury, the half-brother of Tyson Fury, the WBC heavyweight champion.

“The Iron Mike” Tyson was the undisputed world heavyweight champion from 1987 to 1990. He retired from boxing in 2005 after winning 50 bouts, 44 of which were knockouts.

” I have set my sights on becoming the greatest heavyweight champion of all time within the next few months, and now I have the chance to prove myself against the most dangerous boxer of all time, Iron Mike, who is one of the most dangerous men that has ever lived. It is time for him to sleep,” Paul wrote on social media.

He’s the greatest heavyweight of all time…the most vicious KO artist ever. But I’m younger, faster, and I’m going to work my ass off to get stronger.”

Jake Paul fought on the undercard of Tyson-Jones. Ryan Bourland was knocked out by him last Saturday.

Tyson says he’s looking forward to fighting Jake Paul at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. “He’s grown a lot as a boxer over the years, so it’ll be fun to see what his will and ambition can do with his experience and aptitude.”

As I started him off on the undercard of my fight with Roy Jones, I will finish him. It’s a full circle moment that will be fascinating to watch.”

AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys, can accommodate around 80,000 people. The number of seats for Jake Paul-Tyson is unclear.
