The boxing match between Jake Paul and Mike Tyson has been rescheduled for November 15 at AT&T Stadium following the event being postponed due to a medical emergency.

The fight, originally scheduled for July 20 at AT&T Stadium, was postponed following reports that Tyson suffered an ulcer flareup while on a flight from Los Angeles to Miami, as previously reported by The Dallas Express.

Nakisa Bidarian, co-founder of Most Valuable Promotions (MVP), said in a news release that MVP worked with “all parties involved” as they looked to reschedule the fight while also keeping the match at AT&T Stadium.

“We appreciate the outstanding dedication, collaboration, and flexibility of our partners at Netflix and AT&T Stadium. Paul vs. Tyson is the most cross generational sporting event in history, and we are committed to providing fans worldwide with this unforgettable night of boxing, live globally on Netflix,” Bidarian said in the news release.

Tyson issued a statement about the update, noting that he will “resume training shortly,” adding that he is grateful to everyone involved for accommodating the change.

“While we have a new date, the result will be the same no matter when we fight. Jake Paul is getting knocked out,” said Tyson, per MVP.

Paul responded to Tyson’s statements about the new schedule, stating that he supported the change because Tyson now has “no excuses come fight night.”

“My fans know I don’t want to face Iron Mike at anything but his best, but let there be no mistake — when he steps into the ring with me, I will be ready to claim my W with a sensational finish. Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson will be one for the ages, and I promise to bring my best for this once-in-a-lifetime matchup,” Paul said to Netflix.

As reported by The Dallas Express, this fight was initially set to cost the City of Arlington an estimated $247,000, with the Lone Star State expected to pay roughly $1.5 million for the event. However, it remains unclear how much either of the two entities will pay now that the fight has been rescheduled.
