Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson fight to stream live on Netflix

Social media star Jake Paul is set to face off against former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson on July 20 at AT&T Stadium, as announced by Netflix. The 27-year-old Paul, who transitioned from a YouTube influencer to a professional boxer four years ago, has won nine out of 10 fights with six knockouts. His only loss came last year to Tommy Fury, the half brother of WBC heavyweight champ Tyson Fury.

On the other hand, Tyson, 57, last fought in a 2020 exhibition match against Roy Jones Jr. that ended in a draw. The former undisputed world heavyweight champion retired in 2005 after winning 50 fights, 44 by knockout.

In a statement, Paul expressed his determination to prove himself against Tyson, referring to him as the greatest heavyweight champion of all time. Tyson, on the other hand, shared his excitement about the upcoming fight, acknowledging Paul's growth as a boxer since their first encounter on the undercard of the Tyson-Jones fight.

The match between Paul and Tyson is expected to draw significant attention from fans and boxing enthusiasts alike. While Paul aims to further establish himself as a legitimate contender in the boxing world, Tyson sees this as an opportunity to face a younger opponent and showcase his skills and experience in the ring.

The live coverage of the fight on Netflix will undoubtedly attract a wide audience, eager to witness the clash between the social media sensation and the legendary heavyweight champion. It remains to be seen how the bout will unfold and whether Paul can live up to his bold claims against the seasoned veteran Tyson.
