As reported earlier, the boxing match between Jake Paul and Mike Tyson was delayed because of an ulcer flare-up suffered by Tyson. The fight was initially scheduled for July 20.

Netflix and Most Valuable Promotions, the organizers of the event, announced on Friday morning that the match is now rescheduled for Friday, November 15. It will be available to Netflix subscribers at no additional charge.

"Although we had to postpone the fight, I will resume training shortly. I am thankful to the medical staff that treated me and to MVP, Netflix, and AT&T Stadium for working diligently to find the best reschedule date for all parties," Tyson said in a statement. "While we have a new date, the result will be the same no matter when we fight. Jake Paul is getting knocked out."

At 57 years old, Tyson is entering the ring for his first fight since his exhibition bout against Roy Jones Jr. in 2020, marking his first professional fight since 2005.

'Iron Mike' will face off against YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul, who is 30 years younger.
