MVP Promotions has announced a new date for the highly anticipated Mike Tyson vs. Jake Paul fight, and unfortunately, it will not be happening at any point this summer.

While some might view it as a “freak show” fight, there is a lot of interest in the planned scrap between the legendary heavyweight and the YouTuber-turned-combat sports disruptor. However, the excitement for the bout was put on pause last week when it was revealed that the bout would be postponed after the 57-year-old had a health scare related to an ulcer.
