The anticipated boxing match between the legendary Mike Tyson and YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul has been rescheduled for Friday, Nov. 15 at AT&T Stadium.

The bout was first scheduled for July 20 but was postponed after Tyson, who had a scare on a flight from Miami to Los Angeles on May 26, and needed to receive medical attention, was advised to rest and to not return to training for a few weeks, according to a statement from MVP, Paul's promotional company.

"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," the statement read.

Tyson (50-6, 44 KOs), of Brooklyn, New York, is the youngest heavyweight to win a world title. At 20 years old, he defeated Trevor Berbick in 1986 by second-round TKO to win the WBC belt in Las Vegas. "The Baddest Man on the Planet" added the WBA belt in March 1987 and the IBF five months later to become undisputed champion. He made six defenses of the three belts until losing in a historic upset to James "Buster" Douglas by 10th-round KO in February 1990.

In February 1992, Tyson was convicted of rape and after serving less than three years in prison, returned to the ring. Tyson, who turns 58 in late June, was 6-5 with two no contests to end his career.

Paul (9-1, 6 KOs), of Cleveland, Ohio, but now living and training in Puerto Rico, started boxing professionally in 2020. He had six straight victories, four by stoppage, mostly against former MMA fighters. Paul, 26, lost a split decision to Tommy Fury in February 2023, but has won three straight fights since, including a first-round KO of Ryan Bourland in March.

The fight will be contested over eight two-minute rounds, with 14-ounce gloves and sanctioned as a professional bout by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations.
