The Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson boxing match is scheduled to take place on Saturday, July 20th at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The event will be streamed globally on Netflix.


Following the announcement of the fight there have been mixed opinions concerning whether or not the fight should take place at all.

Tyson Fury is sharing his belief that the Paul vs. Tyson match is great for boxing as a whole.

Fury, speaking on ‘The Stomping Ground’, shared his take on the upcoming bout:

“I think it’s fantastic for boxing. You’ve got a legend in Mike Tyson, you’ve got a YouTube boxer who’s come into the game and blew it up, and he’s got millions of followers and millions of views and millions of eyes – good, bad or indifferent. Some people love him, some people hate him.”

Continuing Tyson Fury shared:

“I think it’s a really good spectacle for boxing – brings a lot of people to the game. Listen, who am I to say, ‘Oh, Mike Tyson shouldn’t be boxing,’ or ‘Jake Paul shouldn’t be boxing’? Good luck to them. They’re both going to make what I call a sh*t-ton of money out of it.”

Concluding, the ‘Gypsy King’ said (h/t MMAJunkie):


“It’d be fantastic for the guys, both getting paid, both going to put on a show – I just don’t know what’s not to like. Oh, OK, (Tyson’s) 57 years old, but he’s a former undisputed world heavyweight king. And (Paul) plays computers for a living, and he’s come to boxing about a year ago, so pretty even match. … People say, ‘Oh, it’s sh*t,’ this, that and the other. But I’ll bet they still watch it. Who’s not intrigued?”

Do you agree with Tyson Fury that the fight is ‘fantastic’ for boxing? Will you be watching on July 20th?
