Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson to make a comeback in the boxing ring

    Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson to make a comeback in the boxing ring

    Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, 57, is preparing for his first professional fight since 2005 against YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul, 27. The heavyweight bout at the Arlington, Texas home of the NFL's Dallas Cowboys, will be contested over eight two-minute rounds with each fighter using 14-ounce gloves. The outcome will be included in both fighters' professional boxing records. Paul, a YouTube influencer-turned-boxer, has won nine of 10 boxing matches with six knockouts against a mix of celebrities and middling fighters. He suffered his sole career boxing loss in February 2023 when he lost a split decision to Tommy Fury, the half-brother of World Boxing Council heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. Mike Tyson and Jake Paul took verbal jabs at each other on May 16) during a press conference to drum up interest for their July boxing match at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. While Tyson called Paul "a young boy" and vowed to "finish him", Paul said we would "put Tyson to sleep for the last time."
