Jake Paul Vs. Mike Tyson Livestreamed by Netflix

Are you a fan of Mike Tyson or Jake Paul? Later this summer, fans will get the opportunity to see them fight each other in the boxing ring at AT&T Stadium – home of Dallas Cowboys – on July 20. Netflix will livestream the event, marking its first foray into live combat sports events.

According to a news release from Most Valuable Promotions co-founded by Paul, this fight will be produced. At 27 years old and with nine wins out of 11 including six knockouts he most recently defeated Ryan Bourland by first round TKO March 2. Paul boasts an imposing 76″ reach that places him among modern boxing’s highest reaching heavyweights.

Tyson has not competed since an exhibition match against Roy Jones Jr. ended in a split draw in November 2020, yet remains one of the most recognized figures in boxing history. Hailing from Ohio himself and currently living in Westlake suburb of Cleveland.

Paul and Tyson’s bout is certain to generate plenty of excitement, yet some may consider its hype to be excessive. Paul is currently ranked as a contender in the lightweight division and has received multiple honors and awards for his fighting style and professional growth as a boxer, including ESPNRingside’s 2021 Knockout of the Year honor.

Tyson may find it challenging to win this fight given his age of 58 and steadily approaching social security eligibility compared to Paul’s 27 years and three decades younger age. Without miraculous improvement in conditioning it would be hard for Tyson to come out victorious from this fight.

There are serious safety concerns over this fight. The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, responsible for overseeing combat sports in Texas, has yet to make an announcement as to its plans for this match-up; additionally, MMA’s state governing body Professional Fighters Association is yet to decide if this match-up should go forward.

Even amid controversy surrounding this fight, ticket sales should go well. Tickets are already on sale with prices beginning at $50 for general admission and up to $1,500 for ringside seats. Early this week, heavyweight boxer Derek Chisora made claims about their bout which caused considerable outrage and controversy. But Nakisa Bidarian of Most Valuable Promotions swiftly refuted these statements as misplaced. Bidarian has confirmed that all safety measures will be in place and fighters will not need to wear headgear. As well as Tyson versus Tyson, an additional card featuring lesser-known boxers will take place the same night and can be watched via both Netflix and Ticketmaster apps – for more details click here or for additional sports coverage follow Dispatch Sportkeeda Blog on social media.
