Mike Tyson is scheduled to face Jake Paul in a professional match next July.

“It looks like it’s going to be fun,” “Iron Mike” said during a press conference at New York’s famous Apollo Theater. “Maybe we’ll do it again.”

Aged 57, Mike Tyson has not fought professionally for almost 19 years and a defeat against Irishman Kevin McBride. “I no longer have the guts to continue,” the American declared at the time. “I probably won’t fight again.”

According to several media, the former world heavyweight champion should receive several million dollars for his participation in the fight which will take place on July 20 in Arlington, Texas. The meeting, in this 80,000-seat stadium, will be broadcast live on Netflix and accessible to all subscribers, i.e. 270 million households, a first for the streaming service.

Concern

Many observers, notably former American world champion Deontay Wilder, have expressed concern about seeing a nearly sixty-year-old (he will be 58 at the time of the match) lined up in a professional fight, saying they fear a serious injury.

“People who say that (that he’s too old) just wish they were in my place,” retorted the Brooklyn native, who posted videos of his workouts on social media.

The fight against Jake Paul, aged 27, will take place in eight rounds of two minutes each. “I feel great, but my body is shit right now,” said Mike Tyson, with a smile on his face.
