Jake Paul will fight Mike Tyson on July 20, 2024, at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington Texas and will be streamed on Netflix.

Mike Tyson is a retired boxer who some may even say is the greatest of all time. Tyson finished his career with 50 wins (44 by knockout) and only six losses. Tyson retired in 2005 simply because he was just tired of fighting. 

On June 28, 1997, Tyson fought boxer Evander Holyfield. During the third round of the fight, Tyson bit a chunk of Holyfield’s ear off. Tyson was disqualified, making Holyfield the winner of the fight. After Holyfield’s ear was bitten, Tyson apologized and they later became friends.

Jake Paul is an influencer who used to be a famous YouTuber with 20.6 million subscribers. Paul stopped making videos and started his boxing career in 2018. 

Paul made his debut on August 25, 2018, against YouTuber Deji Olatunji. Paul won the fight by technical knockout in the fifth round.

Paul currently has nine wins (six by knockout) and only one loss. There is a lot of controversy about Paul’s record and whether he really is a good boxer or not. People say he only has wins because he has only fought non-boxers and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighters. 

The rules of MMA and boxing are completely different. In boxing, you can only throw punches with thick gloves, while in MMA, fighters can grab, wrestle, kick and punch. 

Tyson is 57 years old and Paul is only 27 years old. However, there are videos on the internet of Tyson showing off his moves, and it looks like he’s still got it. This fight should be very exciting and very energetic.

“Jake will feel Mike’s hands, there’s no other way, and that’s when we’ll have an idea on how the fight will go,” said Rafael Cordeiro via the MMA Fighting website.

Mike Tyson is favored to win because of his history in the sport. Considering how young Paul is, Tyson has more experience in boxing so he has the upper hand. In conclusion, it is believed that Mike Tyson will defeat Jake Paul.
