Jake Paul’s new opponent for July 20 bout is CONFIRMED after Mike Tyson pulled out of controversial fight

Jake Paul has found a new opponent to step into the ring with on July 20 after Mike Tyson was forced to pull out of their proposed bout this summer.

Tyson, who turns 58 later this month, was initially set to meet Paul, 27, in a controversial fight which had divided opinion because of the significant age gap between the two men.

However, earlier this month ‘Iron Mike’ officially withdrew from the July 20 event after suffering a health scare on a recent flight from Miami to Los Angeles.

The former undisputed heavyweight champion required medical attention after an ulcer flare up left him nauseous and dizzy, with paramedics eventually boarding the plane to treat him after it had touched down in LA.

As a result, Tyson has been forced to delay his showdown with the YouTuber-turned-fighter until November 15, when he hopes to be fit enough to compete professionally again for the first time in almost two decades.
