Jake Paul vs Mike Tyson July 20th at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas

    On July 20, 2024, the boxing world will witness a highly anticipated showdown between YouTube sensation Jake Paul and legendary heavyweight champion Mike Tyson. This bout, sanctioned by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, will take place at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and will be streamed globally on Netflix.

    Jake Paul, the 27-year-old American YouTuber-turned-professional boxer, has been making waves in the combat sports world. Paul began his boxing career in 2018 with a white-collar match against Deji Olatunji, which he won via technical knockout. His professional debut came in January 2020 when he defeated AnEsonGib. Since then, Paul has amassed an impressive record of 9 wins and 1 loss, with 6 of those wins coming by way of knockout. His sole defeat came against Tommy Fury, the half-brother of WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, in 2023.

    On the other side of the ring stands the iconic Mike Tyson, the former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. Tyson, who will turn 58 in June, last competed professionally in 2005, when he retired with a record of 50 wins, 44 by knockout, and 6 losses. His most historic fights include his victories over Trevor Berbick, Larry Holmes, and Michael Spinks, as well as his infamous loss to Buster Douglas in 1990. In 2020, Tyson faced off against Roy Jones Jr. in an exhibition match that ended in a draw. 

    The upcoming bout between Paul and Tyson will be a unique battle of generations, with the younger, more inexperienced Paul taking on the seasoned and legendary Tyson. The fight will be contested over eight two-minute rounds, with both fighters using 14-ounce gloves, which is different from the standard 10-ounce gloves used in professional boxing matches. This rule change is likely to benefit the younger and more light-footed Paul.

    Despite the significant age gap of 31 years, this fight has generated immense buzz in the sports world. Tyson, the former undisputed heavyweight champion, will be the underdog against the rising star Paul, who has already proven his mettle in the ring. The outcome of this bout will not only impact the fighters’ professional records but also guarantee the legacy of the winner.
