Mike Tyson vs. Jake Paul Terms Set for Summer Showdown: The Gloves Are Heavier and the Rounds Are Shorter

The much-anticipated showdown between Mike Tyson and Jake Paul is heating up, with new terms set for their upcoming bout in Texas this summer.

Unlike previous exhibitions, Tyson's clash with Paul has been sanctioned as a competitive boxing match, signaling a shift in intensity for the event. The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation has approved specific terms for the fight, which is scheduled to take place on July 20 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

In a departure from standard regulations, the bout will feature shorter rounds and heavier gloves, amplifying the challenge for both fighters. Typically, men's professional fights consist of three-minute rounds, but Tyson and Paul will contend with two-minute rounds. Additionally, the boxers will don 14-ounce gloves, compared to the standard 10-ounce gloves, which aim to reduce the impact of punches.

"This will be a professional bout with a referee and judges, and the results will count as part of the fighters' professional records. So - it's an actual competitive fight," stated a Department of Licensing and Regulation spokesperson in an email to The Associated Press.photo 2

The decision to alter the fight's format underscores the significance of the event, elevating it beyond a mere exhibition. With Netflix slated to provide live coverage of the bout, fans can expect a riveting showdown between the 27-year-old social media sensation-turned-boxer, Paul, and the 57-year-old boxing legend, Tyson.photo 1

Paul, known for his meteoric rise from YouTube influencer to professional boxer, has amassed a considerable following and boasts an impressive record in the ring. Meanwhile, Tyson, a former undisputed world heavyweight champion, retired in 2005 after securing 50 victories, 44 of which were knockouts.

With each fighter bringing their unique skill set and experience to the ring, Tyson vs. Paul promises to be a thrilling spectacle that captivates audiences worldwide.
