BREAKING NEWS! Mike Tyson v Jake Paul Confirmed for July

 Jake Paul, the internet sensation turned professional boxer, famously known for his knockout victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson back in 2020, is set to take on one of boxing's greatest, Mike Tyson. This matchup is one of the most unexpected fights in the wave of celebrity boxing matches, pitting the young YouTuber against the legendary heavyweight champion.

The fight is scheduled for July 20 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and will be the highlight of an event broadcast live on Netflix. This marks Netflix's initial venture into broadcasting live combat sports, following an agreement with Paul's Most Valuable Promotions last November.

Nakisa Bidarian, co-founder of MVP, expressed his enthusiasm about the event, stating, "Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson is a once-in-a-lifetime dream matchup and I anticipate it will be the most-watched boxing event in modern boxing history."

The fight's classification, whether as a professional bout or an exhibition, is still to be determined by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, which oversees combat sports in the state. The event has already sparked widespread interest and debate.

At 58, Tyson, a former undisputed heavyweight champion, remains a formidable figure in the boxing world, having last appeared in an exhibition match against Roy Jones Jr. in 2020. Despite his age, Tyson has shown impressive form in recent training videos.

Paul, 27, has quickly risen in the boxing ranks, securing victories against notable UFC fighters and focusing on more experienced boxers to hone his skills. With a professional record of 9-1, including six knockouts, Paul is coming off two consecutive first-round victories.

Reflecting on the upcoming fight, Paul stated:

"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, I'm facing Tyson himself. It's a testament to what we've achieved in such a short time."

Netflix's foray into live sports continues with this event, following the broadcast of the Netflix Cup and the Netflix Slam earlier this year. Gabe Spitzer, Netflix's vice president for nonfiction sports, highlighted the significance of the Tyson-Paul fight, emphasizing the drama and history that will unfold in the ring this July.
