New date for Mike Tyson vs Jake Paul is announced after controversial fight originally scheduled for July 20 was postponed

Jake Paul’s postponed fined with Mike Tyson has been rescheduled for November 15 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

The upcoming bout was originally scheduled for July 20 until the 57-year-old Tyson suffered a medical emergency on a cross-country flight. The highly anticipated rematch between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano will also take place at the Dallas Cowboys’ home field on November 15. 

‘Although we had to postpone the fight, I will resume training shortly,’ Tyson said in a statement. ‘I am thankful to the medical staff that treated me and to [Most Valuable Promotions], Netflix, and AT&T Stadium for working diligently to find the best reschedule date for all parties.

‘While we have a new date, the result will be the same no matter when we fight,’ he added. ‘Jake Paul is getting knocked out. On Friday, November 15, watch this in-person at AT&T Stadium or live on Netflix.” 

The rescheduled date comes as a bit of a surprise following speculation that the bout would be cancelled. Sports Illustrated reporter Chris Mannix reported there was ‘genuine concern’ about whether Tyson will ever be able to fight Paul following his mysterious medical emergency.

‘Mike Tyson is 57 years old; he’s almost 58 years old,’ Mannix told ‘The Rich Eisen’ show about the former heavyweight champion’s medical issues. ‘They’re saying it’s a minor ulcer issue, but I don’t think anything’s minor at that stage of your life, especially when it comes to putting yourself in the proper shape to fight a professional boxing match.
