Tyson gives warning to Paul ahead of July fight



Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, preparing for his first professional fight since 2005, warned YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul on Monday that his life will be on the line during their July 20 bout.

The 57-year-old Tyson, speaking at New York City’s Apollo Theater during a press conference to promote a fight against an opponent who is 30 years his junior, said he wants to show the world he is still a great fighter.

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 27-year-old 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 by split decision to Tommy Fury, the half brother of World Boxing Council heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

Tyson and Paul will participate in another press conference on Thursday in Arlington.
