The highly anticipated clash between Jake Paul and Mike Tyson has been postponed after the 57-year-old’s health issues. Tyson and Paul were scheduled to fight on July 20 in Arlington, Texas, which was to be telecasted on Netflix. However, Tyson recently became nauseous and dizzy during his flight from Miami to Los Angeles last Sunday. He was later diagnosed with ulcer problem. 

Netflix took to social media and announced that the fight has been postponed. The statement read, “Unfortunately Jake Paul and Mike Tyson will not face-off on July 20 as planned. Tyson’s recent ulcer flare up has limited his ability to train fully for the next few weeks. The fight will be rescheduled for a date later this year after Mike’s able to resume training with no limitations and both fighters can have equal time to prepare for this once-in-a-lifetime matchup!” 

I’ll step in: Logan Paul offers to fill for Mike Tyson against Jake Paul

Shortly after the news of the postponement broke, Jake Paul’s older brother Logan Paul offered to step in as the replacement and face the younger Paul. Logan took to X and wrote, "So Mike Tyson's out? I'll step in and we can settle this once and for all Jake Paul." Jake, better known as ‘The Problem Child’ welcomed the idea and put on a condition. 

He tweeted, "Mom doesn't want me to KO you but f**k it. Loser has to change their last name." If the fight happens, this won’t be the first time the Paul brothers will engage in a bout. As per their previous records, Jake holds a record of 9-1, and has faced several UFC stars. The list includes names like Nate Diaz, Anderson Silva, Tyron Woodley and Ben Askren.
