Jake Paul and Mike Tyson announce fight in Dallas in July live on Netflix – despite an age gap of 30 YEARS between the two fighters

Jake Paul will fight Mike Tyson in sensational fashion on July 20 at AT&T Stadium in Dallas.

There is a 30-year age difference between the two fighters, with 27-year-old Paul facing off against the 57-year-old heavyweight boxing legend. Tyson will be 58 by the time the fight takes place.

The fight, held at the 80,000-seat home of the Dallas Cowboys, will be streamed live on Netflix.

“I’m really looking forward to getting in the ring with Jake Paul,” Tyson said.

“He’s grown a lot as a boxer over the years, so it’ll be a lot of fun to see what the will and ambition of a ‘kid’ can do with the experience and aptitude of a GOAT.”

Paul, who won his last fight against Ryan Bourland on Saturday, said: ‘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, less than four years later, I’m taking on Tyson myself to see if I have what it takes to beat one of the most infamous boxers and biggest icons in boxing.

“My sights are set on becoming a world champion, and now I have the chance to prove myself against the greatest heavyweight champion ever, the baddest man in the world and the most dangerous boxer of all time. This will be the fight of your life.’

Tyson, the former heavyweight champion, returned to the ring in 2020 for an eight-round exhibition fight against Roy Jones Jr. in Los Angeles.

His last professional fight was in 2005 and it is unclear whether this fight will be categorized as a professional fight or an exhibition event.

Paul, meanwhile, is 9-1 with six KOs on his crossover from YouTuber to boxer. His only loss was to Tommy Fury, Tyson’s younger brother.

He has defeated former UFC stars Nate Diaz, Anderson Silva and Tyron Woodley, as well as journeymen like Andre August and Bourland.
