Jake Paul will sensationally fight Mike Tyson at the AT&T Stadium in Dallas on July 20 – and has vowed to put the boxing legend ‘to sleep’.

There is a 30-year age gap between the two fighters, with the 27-year-old Paul facing the 57-year-old heavyweight boxing legend. Tyson will be 58 by the time the fight is staged.

About The Bout

The fight to be held at the 80,000-seater home of the Dallas Cowboys, will be streamed live on Netflix, who released a teaser video of the event showing Paul stepping out of a helicopter and squaring up to Tyson.

‘I’m very much looking forward to stepping into the ring with Jake Paul,’ Tyson said. 

‘He’s grown significantly as a boxer over the years, so it will be a lot of fun to see what the will and ambition of a “kid” can do with the experience and aptitude of a GOAT.’

Statement From Paul

Paul, who won his latest fight against Ryan Bourland on Saturday, wrote on Instagram: ‘It’s time to put Iron Mike to sleep.’

He added: ‘It’s crazy to think that in my second pro fight, I went viral for knocking out Nate Robinson on Mike Tyson’s undercard. 

‘Now, less than four years later, I’m stepping up to face Tyson myself to see if I have what it takes to beat one of boxing’s most notorious fighters and biggest icons.

‘My sights are set on becoming a world champion, and now I have a chance to prove myself against the greatest heavyweight champion ever, the baddest man on the planet and the most dangerous boxer of all time. This will be the fight of a lifetime.’ 

Paul later shared a video of Tyson in practice just two weeks ago, looking in magnificent condition.

‘He’s the greatest heavyweight of all time…the most vicious KO artist ever. But I’m younger, I’m faster and I’m going to be working my a** off to get stronger,’ Paul wrote. ‘A member of my team sent me this video that Mike’s coach put up two weeks ago and asked me if I’m sure that I want to do this…yes, yes I do. Heavyweight.’

Last Time Mike Was in a Ring

Tyson, the former heavyweight champion, returned to the ring in 2020 for an eight-round exhibition fight against Roy Jones Jr in Los Angeles

His last professional fight was in 2005 and it is unclear if this bout will be categorized as a professional fight or an exhibition event.
