Taking its boldest move into live content, Netflix will exclusively broadcast Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson live from the AT&T Stadium in July 2024.

Netflix has partnered with Most Valuable Promotions (MVP) and will broadcast the upcoming fight between The Problem Child, aka Jake “El Gallo” Paul (currently 9-1, 6 KOs), the Baddest Man on the Planet, aka Mike Tyson,  the former undisputed heavyweight champion (50-6, 44 KOs).

The upcoming fight is Netflix showcasing its efforts to step up its output of live content. Recently, a live Tennis exhibition match, aka The Netflix Slam, saw Rafael Nadal take on world number 2 Carlos Alcaraz at MGM Resorts International in Las Vegas. Not to mention Netflix recently broadcast the 30th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards to great success.

Jake Paul’s bout with Mike Tyson is the first time Netflix will be livestreaming a boxing event.

Jake Paul had the following to say about his upcoming fight;

““It’s crazy to think that in my second pro fight, I went viral for knocking out Nate Robinson on Mike Tyson’s undercard. Now, less than four years later, I’m stepping up to face Tyson myself to see if I have what it takes to beat one of boxing’s most notorious fighters and biggest icons,” said Jake Paul. “Within just two and a half years of founding MVP, we’re about to produce the biggest fight in history, a fight in the biggest NFL stadium in the US, broadcast live, on the biggest streaming platform in the world – a testament to all we’ve accomplished in such a short amount of time. Whether you’re tuning in on Netflix or showing out in person, whether you’re team Paul or team Tyson, or whether you’re a lifelong boxing fan or watching your first fight, you’re not going to want to miss this event. I could not be more excited to make this amazing fight available to all Netflix subscribers alongside the hardest hitter of all time, Mike Tyson, on Saturday, July 20th. My sights are set on becoming a world champion, and now I have a chance to prove myself against the greatest heavyweight champion ever, the baddest man on the planet and the most dangerous boxer of all time. This will be the fight of a lifetime.”

Jake Paul’s career as a boxer has been highly divisive so far. Many of his professional fights have been criticized due to his choice of opponents, often retired athletes and martial artists with minimal professional boxing experience. His first experience against a professional boxer, Tommy Fury, in February 2023, saw Jake Paul take his first professional loss. He has since won three bouts against opponents such as UFC legend Nate Diaz and pro-boxers Andre August and Ryan Bourland.

Mike Tyson, the former undisputed heavyweight champion, also shared his thoughts on the fight;

“I’m very much looking forward to stepping into the ring with Jake Paul at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas,” said Mike Tyson. “He’s grown significantly as a boxer over the years, so it will be a lot of fun to see what the will and ambition of a ‘kid’ can do with the experience and aptitude of a GOAT.  It’s a full circle moment that will be beyond thrilling to watch; as I started him on his boxing journey on the undercard of my fight with Roy Jones and now I plan to finish him.”

Mike Tyson, now 57 years old, is one of the greatest heavyweight boxers ever. He reigned as the undisputed world heavyweight champion from 1987 to 1990. His last professional fight was almost twenty years ago, in 2005, when he lost to Kevin McBride in the sixth round. His last exhibition bout came over three years ago, when he fought Roy Jones Jr. to a draw in the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
