Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson Postponed To A Later Date

Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson has been postponed due to an ulcer flare-up suffered by Tyson. Medical professionals determined Tyson can do minimal light training over the next couple of weeks before returning to full training with “no limitations.”

“I want to thank my fans around the world for their support and understanding during this time. Unfortunately, due to my ulcer flareup, I have been advised by my doctor to lighten my training for a few weeks to rest and recover,” Tyson said in a statement. “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. 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.”

Paul and Tyson agree that both athletes must be able to compete at the highest level for the fight to occur. Paul agrees with the decision to move the fight.

“I fully support postponing the event so Mike Tyson has no excuses come fight night,” Paul said. “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 vs Tyson will be one for the ages, and I promise to bring my best for this once-in-a-lifetime matchup.”
