Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson: broadcast & time

The boxing match between Jake Paul and Mike Tyson will take place on July 20. The venue is the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas (USA).

Paul and Tyson will step into the ring at the stadium where the Dallas Cowboys football team plays its NFL home games. Up to 80,000 spectators are expected for the intergenerational duel.

There is no exact time yet, but it can be assumed that the fight will start at 22:00 or 23:00 local time in the evening. Due to the time difference, the German time for Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson would be 5:00 a.m.

Who is showing the Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson broadcast?

After the announcement of the boxing match between the boxing internet star and the former boxing champion, the question naturally arises: who is broadcasting the Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson boxing match?

The broadcast of Jake Paul vs Mike Tyson will be available exclusively on Netflix!

No joke: Netflix is broadcasting the Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson boxing match live and exclusively on July 20. This also makes it clear that this boxing thriller will not be available on DAZN.

Netflix, previously only known for its extensive range of series and films, has decided to become active in sport too. The broadcast of Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson is to be the start.

With a celebrity golf match and the tennis showdown between Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz, Netflix is now venturing into live broadcasts of (self-organized) sporting events.

How much does the Paul – Tyson broadcast on Netflix cost?

If you want to watch the Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson fight live on July 20, you will have to pay for the broadcast. A Netflix subscription will be required in any case.

Netflix currently offers three subscriptions. In addition to the standard subscription with advertising for 4.99 euros per month, there is also the ad-free standard subscription for 12.99 euros per month and the premium subscription for 17.99 euros per month.

But whether a simple Netflix subscription is enough to watch the Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson broadcast on July 20 remains to be seen. One is almost inclined to say that it won’t be enough.

It is more likely that the boxing match between the internet hero and the boxing icon will cost extra as a PPV event.

This has also recently been the practice at DAZN. Well-known boxing matches cost extra for DAZN subscribers. Most recently, DAZN charged 24.99 euros for the boxing match between Anthony Joshua and Francis Ngannou. The broadcast of Tyson vs. Oleksandr Usyk on May 18 will also cost extra on DAZN.

However, the Netflix price for the boxing match between Jake Paul and Mike Tyson has yet to be determined

What is Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson about?

When 27-year-old Jake Paul and 30-year-old Mike Tyson step onto the ropes on July 20, it won’t be for a title. But for both, it’s probably about something more than a gold belt can express: Prestige and reputation.

Mike Tyson became the youngest heavyweight champion of all time at the age of 20 and is considered one of the greatest boxers of all time after winning several world titles. According to ESPN, “Iron Mike” is even the number 1 in the history of heavyweight boxing.

Jake Paul became world-famous as a social media clown via YouTube and has only been boxing for four years.

This raises two questions:

Does the former heavyweight world champion with the nasty-sounding nickname “Baddest Man on the Planet”, who dominated boxing at will in his day, want to be beaten up by a 27-year-old boxing newcomer in front of the world public at almost 60 years of age?

Does a 27-year-old who declares that his ultimate goal is to become world boxing champion want to be beaten by a retired boxer 30 years his senior who ended his professional career in 2005?

How much is the fee for Jake Paul and Mike Tyson?

What do Jake Paul and Mike Tyson earn for their boxing match on July 20? There is no official information on the amount of the fees yet.

Jake Paul has repeatedly said in the past that a boxing match against “Iron Mike” would bring in around 300 million dollars.

Mike Tyson has also spoken several times about a possible fight with Jake Paul. He explained that he would only get back into the ring for a fight if the event broke pay-per-view records.

The former world heavyweight champion once claimed on the “Hotboxin” podcast that he would be willing to fight Paul for 1 billion dollars. Only he himself knows whether this was actually meant seriously

Last year, however, British boxing expert Akin Reyes claimed that Mike Tyson would accept a much lower fee for a comeback fight against Jake Paul. “The reality is, if there’s a real offer on the table, let’s say somewhere between 50 and 100 million dollars, Mike will come back.”

How high the fees for Jake Paul and Mike Tyson will be for their boxing match remains to be seen. But: With ticket sales and PPV income, a three-digit million sum can probably be generated for this (show) fight.

For comparison: Logan Paul, Jake’s older brother, earned over 20 million dollars for his exhibition boxing match against Floyd Mayweather. Mayweather even raked in 100 million dollars for his performance.

Jake Paul and “Iron Mike” are probably also hoping for a similar payday

Prediction & Analysis: Who will win in Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson?

The exciting question ahead of the generational duel between 27-year-old Jake Paul and 57-year-old Mike Tyson is: Who will win?

The prediction for the Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson boxing match seems to be clear, even if the nostalgic boxing fans don’t want to believe it: Jake Paul will enter the ring as the clear favorite.

Paul has developed steadily in recent years since the start of his boxing career. The boxing social media joker with the nickname “The Problem Child” has become quite a decent boxer

Jake Paul has fought a total of ten professional fights so far in January 2020, nine of which he has won. His only defeat came against professional boxer Tommy Fury in February 2023.

However, it is also true that most of Paul’s opponents were former, washed-up MMA fighters – such as Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.

Against much fitter ex-MMA fighters such as Anderson Silva and Nate Diaz, however, the “boxing influencer” had a much harder time. There were only wins on points against both.

Although Jake Paul has recently fought twice against professional boxers, both were only in the lower price bracket. That was also the result: Andre August (December 2023) and Ryan Bourland in March this year were both defeated by knockout in round 1.

And now the biggest and perhaps even most difficult task awaits Jake Paul with Mike Tyson. “Difficult” in the sense of: He cannot afford to make a mistake. There is no question that, as a well-trained twenty-something, he will and must be superior to the 30-year-old former champion.

This is also reflected in the Jake Paul vs Mike Tyson betting odds – because the social media clown is the heavy favorite for the bookmakers…

Paul vs. Tyson head-to-head comparison

“My goal is to become world champion and now I have the chance to prove myself against the greatest heavyweight champion of all time and the most dangerous boxer of all time. This will be the fight of my life,” says Paul.

At almost 58 years of age, Mike Tyson is not even remotely capable of doing what he would have done to Jake Paul 30 years ago.

Tyson ended his professional boxing career in 2005 with an embarrassing defeat to Kevin McBride. In 2020, he returned to the ring for an exhibition fight against Roy Jones junior. This duel between the two old champions ended in a draw.

Now “Iron Mike” is venturing back onto the mat.

“I’m really looking forward to getting into the ring with Jake Paul. He has developed considerably as a boxer over the years and it will be a lot of fun to see what the will and ambition of a ‘kid’ can do with the experience and skill of a GOAT.”

Most recently, Tyson worked as a trainer for new boxer Francis Ngannou. He had prepared the former MMA champion for his boxing matches against Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua.

Fight Card: Who else is boxing on July 20?

There will be a few more preliminary fights before the Jake Paul – Mike Tyson boxing match on July 20. What the undercard for Paul vs. Tyson will look like is still open.

Some up-and-coming young boxers will probably get the chance to show themselves on the big stage.

Whether other top stars will take to the ropes that evening is somewhat unlikely – after all, the focus will be on the social media joker and the boxing veteran.
