WATCH | Netflix releases trailer for Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson fight

Netflix has released a brief trailer for the Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson boxing match.

Jake Paul, Mike Tyson

Earlier this week, the bout between ‘The Problem Child’ and ‘Iron Mike’ was made official for this summer. The two boxers will headline a Netflix produced-boxing event, the first time that the streaming service has broadcast a fight. Furthermore, Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson won’t air on pay-per-view either.

As long as fans have a monthly subscription to Netflix, they’ll be able to see the action going down on July 20th. The fight itself will be held at the massive AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas. The 100,000-seat Stadium is known mainly for housing the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys. Instead, they will host Jake Paul and Mike Tyson later this summer.

Given the magnitude of the boxing match, it should come as no surprise that Netflix has released a trailer for it. On social media, the streaming service put out a brief clip, after the announcement of the fight. In the trailer, Jake Paul is seen in a helicopter, that lands on a tall skyscraper. It’s worth noting that the boxer arrived at his fight with Ryan Bourland over the weekend in the same way.

When the helicopter touches down on the building, Paul steps out and goes face-to-face with Mike Tyson. The brief clip ends there, but it’s clear that the promotional side of this boxing match is just beginning.

Netflix releases trailer for Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson July 20th boxing match

As of now, there are still a lot of questions surrounding the Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson boxing match. While the bout will be held at heavyweight, it’s not known how many rounds the contest will be. Most importantly, it’s not known if the fight will be a professional one, or if it will be an exhibition.

In the event that the fight is a professional one, it will be Mike Tyson’s first since 2005. That June, ‘Iron Mike’ suffered a stoppage loss to Kevin McBride, in the final bout of his career. Nearly 20 years later, Tyson is set to return to the ring against a man who is 30 years younger than him.

Due to that fact, Jake Paul has already opened up as a heavy favorite for the July 20th boxing match. Furthermore, fan and fighter opinion of the bout announcement hasn’t been entirely positive. That’s largely due to Mike Tyson’s age, as the legend is currently 57 years old.

What do you make of this news? Will you watch Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson going down in July? Who do you have winning that heavyweight boxing match?
