Tyson ‘doing great’ after health scare on flight


Mike Tyson is “doing great” following a reported health scare the former heavyweight champion had on a flight from Miami to Los Angeles on Sunday.

According to a report by In Touch Weekly, Tyson — who is scheduled to face Jake Paul in a boxing match on July 20 — had a medical issue that required paramedics to board the plane upon landing and assist.

“Thankfully Mr. Tyson is doing great,” Tyson’s representatives said in a statement. “He became nauseous and dizzy due to an ulcer flare-up 30 minutes before landing. He is appreciative to the medical staff that were there to help him.”

There were rumors that the flight was delayed because of Tyson’s medical issue, but his representatives debunked that.

“It’s false reporting that his medical attention caused the flight delay,” the rep stated. “This two-hour delay was due to an air conditioning issue on the aircraft.”

Tyson, 57, is slated to return to the boxing ring for his first professional fight in nearly two decades when he faces Paul, 27, in a blockbuster showdown at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The fight will be streamed live on Netflix.

By the time the two combatants step into the ring for their heavyweight clash, Tyson will have celebrated his 58th birthday and be 31 years older than Paul. The fight will be contested over eight 2-minute rounds with each fighter using 14-ounce gloves.
