But Tyson was forced to withdraw after suffering an ulcer flare up while flying from Miami to Los Angeles.

The bout – scrutinised amid the 30-year age gap – has since been rescheduled to November 15.

Tyson is on the mend and due to return to training – but after living the high life recently it has left Paul less than impressed.

Paul’s business partner Nakisa Bidarian said on The MMA Hour: “He’s doing great and Jake is p***d because he sees in Europe, living life, doing appearances, celebrating his birthday and he’s like, ‘I thought he was injured, what’s going on?’

“I talked to team Tyson yesterday and they said he’s back, not doing boxing training but doing strength and conditioning and he feels great.”

Tyson, 58, retired in 2005 but did return 15 years later for an exhibition with Roy Jones Jr, 55, that ended in a draw after eight rounds.

Paul is meanwhile 9-1 in the ring with his only loss coming to Tommy Fury, 25, in 2023.

He will now face former UFC star-turned-bare-knuckle boxer Mike Perry, 32, on July 20.

But as things stand, Paul, 27, is still slated to face Tyson as Bidarian defended the fight for the ages.

He said: “Anyone can get an ulcer, or an injury. “Mike Tyson and Jake Paul make sense because of the age, from my perspective.

“If Mike was in his early 30s, given Jake’s experience, there’s no sense to that fight. Age is the equalising factor.

“When you look at Mike Tyson at age 27, he was 40-1. Jake Paul is 27, he’s 9-1.

“Jake Paul’s been a professional for four years, at that point, Mike Tyson was a professional for 14 years.

“What makes it exciting and real is there’s a chance that either guy can lose.

“If you ask the vast majority of the public, everyone thinks that Mike Tyson is gonna knock out Jake Paul.

“I think as long as he has a clean bill of health, which he did, and he 100 per cent will if we move forward with November 15, then of course that fight should happen.”
