How to watch Jake Paul vs Mike Tyson: Undercard, ringwalk times & more

Sean McCormick

Jake Paul will face his most high profile opponent yet when he takes on former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson in the boxing ring.

The fight announcement sent shockwaves through the sport, with a 57-year-old Tyson set to step inside the ropes for the first time since an exhibition bout with Roy Jones Jr in 2020.

He takes on Paul, who boasts a record of nine wins and one defeat. The 27-year-old has become one of the biggest draws in boxing since his crossover from being a YouTube star, and he has beaten a number of high profile former MMA fighters.

But, in Tyson, this is the first time he has fought a former boxing world champion and Paul will be keen to prove he can mix it in the ring with a boxer after his defeat to Tommy Fury last year.

Despite the 30-year age difference between the pair, the fight has captured the imagination of boxing fans, even if some observers are worried about Tyson putting on the gloves again.

There was concern on May 26, after Tyson took ill on a flight from Miami to Los Angeles, but a statement from his representatives has confirmed “Iron Mike” is “feeling great” ahead of his fight with Paul.
