Mike Tyson Receives Shocking Warning From Doctor Before Jake Paul Fight

Mike Tyson has received a very surprising warning from a doctor ahead of the 57-year-old boxer’s fight against Jake Paul, set to take place in July.

The decision to pit Paul, with only ten bouts under his belt, against the legendary former unified world heavyweight champion Tyson has sparked debates among boxing enthusiasts.

Tyson, who officially retired in 2005, has only participated in two exhibition matches since his retirement.

Despite being 57 years old, Tyson, a former holder of the WBA, WBC, and IBF titles, seems determined to prove he still embodies the ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ moniker.

The matchup between Tyson, a boxing icon, and Paul, known for his Disney Channel past, scheduled for July at AT&T Stadium, certainly presents a captivating scenario.

Nevertheless, experienced boxers have expressed skepticism about the match’s authenticity, especially considering the significant age difference between the contenders. British heavyweight Dereck Chisora, for instance, dismissed it as merely a ‘sparring session’ in a recent conversation.

Doctor Stephen Hughes, a senior medicine lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University, has voiced his concerns regarding Tyson’s wellbeing, given his age. In an article for the Conversation, he highlighted the danger Tyson faces of developing a subdural haematoma – bleeding in the brain due to vein tears.

“The immediate effects may be minimal; the boxer may simply recover. But on some occasions, the effects may be devastating: a subdural haematoma can occur,” he said, according to Express.

Hughes also pointed out the increased risk of brain damage Tyson faces, attributed to age-related brain shrinkage and potential exacerbation from past alcohol misuse, as Tyson confessed to being a heavy drinker in a 2013 ESPN interview.
