Mike Tyson is 57 years old now. He will turn 58 by the day of the fight.

Tyson is 5 feet 10 inches tall. He competed at 220 pounds in his recent exhibition.

The age gap between them is around 31 years on fight night. Tyson, who will be 58 soon, has to fight without headgear, according to the commission rules. Many boxing fans worldwide are probably going to be very concerned about this match.

In November 2020, the heavyweight legend fought Roy Jones Jr. in the ring. But that fight took place under exhibition rules, and Tyson’s fight with Paul will count as his 59th professional fight.

Mike Tyson vs Jake Paul contract Netflix details

The fight will only be streamed on Netflix; the official start time has not yet been disclosed. A Netflix subscription is needed to watch the fight. Standard streaming with advertisements starts at $6.99 per month.

The veteran, who was born in New York, has far more experience than Paul, who has only fought ten fights. It should be mentioned, though, that before Tyson is officially permitted to compete in Texas as a boxer over the age of 36, he must go through a series of tests during fight week. The fight that is being streamed on Netflix may be called off entirely if he fails those tests.

Mike Tyson vs Jake Paul contract rumors

During a press conference earlier this month, Tyson denied rumors that the fight will be predetermined. Rather, he declared, “this is a sanctioned fight and I am knocking Jake out,” in a post on X.

The complete fight rules put an end to earlier rumors that the fighters would be using 18-ounce gloves and headgear.

Mike Tyson vs Jake Paul contract predictions

David Fletcher writes: “No one has dared to challenge Paul because of the inexperience of his opponents and the fear of his power. Tyson is going to be very aggressive and will probably be so for a few rounds. It is possible that Tyson will force Paul to back off once he senses his power, even if he does not win by knockout.”

Since stopping Clifford Etienne in February 2003, Tyson has not triumphed in a boxing match via knockout. Officially, the 31-year age difference between him and Paul will be the biggest in the history of the sport. It also breaks the record of the 24 years that divided 49-year-old Archie Moore and 25-year-old Mike DiBiase in 1963.

Tyson vs. Paul already promises to be one of the most controversial boxing matches ever.
