Paul vs Tyson will be an exhibition match!

The duel between Jake Paul and the legendary world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson will be according to the standard boxing rules, but it will be an exhibition fight only!

At the beginning of March, the Netflix streaming platform and the promoter group Most Valuable Promotions (MVP) officially announced their first-ever collaboration on a boxing gala evening, in which “The Problem Child” Jake Paul and the legendary American boxer “Iron” Mike Tyson will meet in the main duel. The match will be broadcast live worldwide exclusively on Netflix.

The 57-year-old American boxer Mike Tyson ended his highly successful professional career already in 2005, when he was defeated in six rounds by the Irish boxer Kevin McBride. He returned to the ring in an exhibition match in November 2020, where he faced another legend, Roy Jones Jr., which ended in a draw.

There will be ten rounds of boxing according to the rules of professional boxing, but the winner can only be in the case of a knockout. If the match ends in points, the duel will be declared a draw. However, even a knockout victory will not mean that the match will be entered into the official records, because it will be an exhibition match.
