The controversial fight between Mike Tyson and Jake Paul has been rescheduled for November 15.

As had previously been planned for July 20, the venue will remain the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

The 57-year-old Tyson becoming unwell during a flight in May and therefore being taken to hospital had forced its postponement, and contributed to speculation that the rematch between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano would be relocated to Frankfurt, Germany,

For all of the growing concerns surrounding Tyson’s health and the wisdom of him fighting someone who has been active and who is 30 years his junior, however, they will instead fight four months later.

“New date, same place, same fate,” Paul wrote on social media.

“The upcoming highly anticipated boxing match between Jake Paul and Mike Tyson will unfortunately be postponed,” read a statement from Paul’s Most Valuable Promotions when they were first forced to abandon their plans for the fight on July 20. “During a follow-up consultation on Thursday with medical professionals on his recent ulcer flare up, the recommendation is for Mike Tyson to do minimal to light training over the next few weeks and then return to full training with no limitations.

“Both Mike and Jake are in agreement that it is only fair to ensure that both athletes have equal training time to prepare for this important match and are able to compete at the highest level.”
