The legendary Mike Tyson will fight with the YouTube star: the date and place of the fight are known

57-year-old “Iron Mike” will enter the ring against popular blogger Jake Paul.

Former undisputed world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson has decided to return to the ring. The 57-year-old American will fight with the famous blogger Jake Paul.

According to ESPN, the fight between the world boxing legend and the YouTube star will take place on July 20, 2024 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington , Texas (USA). The fight will be broadcast on Netflix.

Iron Mike had his last professional fight in 2005, when he lost by TKO to the Irishman Kevin McBride. Tyson's track record includes 58 fights: 50 victories (44 by knockout), 6 defeats. Two more fights were declared invalid.

In November 2020, Tyson had an exhibition fight with former world champion in five weight categories, Roy Jones. The fight ended in a draw, although according to statistics the advantage was on the side of “Iron Mike”.

Jake Paul made his boxing debut in January 2020, when he defeated another blogger, Ali Eson Gib. Then his victims were former NBA player Nate Robinson, ex-Bellator champion Ben Askren, as well as ex-UFC champion Tyron Woodley, whom Jake defeated twice.

In October 2022, Jake defeated former UFC champion Anderson Silva, and in February 2023, he suffered the only defeat in his boxing career from Tommy Fury, the younger half-brother of the owner Tyson Fury's WBC heavyweight title.

The 27-year-old blogger has 9 wins (6 by knockout) and one defeat. In a previous fight, Paul knocked out professional American boxer Ryan Bourland in the first round in early March 2024.
