Mike Tyson vs Jake Paul: Co-main fight revealed for big Netflix fight

Must read

Former heavyweight boxing legend Mike Tyson will return to the ring in three months to take on YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul in an exhibition match in Arlington, Texas. The details of the additional matchups on the card are gradually taking shape.

Katie Taylor (23-1, 6 KOs), who holds the title of two-weight undisputed champion, is set to face Amanda Serrano (46-2-1, 30 KOs) for the undisputed super lightweight championship in the co-main event. These two star boxers have faced each other before, with Taylor winning by a razor-close split decision in April 2022 at Madison Square Garden.

The upcoming Tyson-Paul fight, which is being presented by Most Valuable Promotions, is scheduled to take place on July 20 and will be held at AT&T Stadium. The event will be broadcast on Netflix and will not require any additional fees for viewers. This marks the first live sports event on the streaming platform.

Here are the latest predictions, odds, and news surrounding this highly-anticipated fight.

Predictions for Tyson-Paul:

Nate Diaz: Tyson will win

In a quick moment with media, Diaz, an esteemed UFC fighter, told reporters that he “doesn’t give a f**k” about the fight. He quickly changed his tune and said, “Nah. Mike Tyson.”

Derek Chisora: A Draw

DAZN writes after Chisora spoke to Crypto Casino LTD: “They are going to have head guards and gloves, but who knows, it might change, Jake Paul is a nutter, so he might walk to the ring with the head guard and then change his mind. I think it’s going to be a draw.”

Lennox Lewis: “I don’t want [Jake Paul] to get hurt”

After Tyson revealed that the match would be an exhibition, former heavyweight champ Lennox Lewis told TMZ that he was glad it was going to be an exhibition because he didn’t want Jake Paul to get hurt, even claiming Paul was “lucky” the fight was an exhibition. That alone shows how much faith Lewis has in Tyson, despite Lewis having defeated Tyson in 2002. Most people assume that Tyson will be the one in danger of getting hurt, considering he is three decades older than Paul. However, Lewis must believe Tyson still has a lot left in the tank.

A month ago, Jake Paul was a huge favorite according to DraftKings sportsbook, sitting at -360 odds. Tyson was given +300 odds. Although some sportsbooks have listed different odds, offering Tyson much more favorable chances, no official odds have been listed in April on DraftKings.
