The fight between Mike Tyson and Jake Paul can be canceled if the legendary boxer does not pass an unusual test as outlined in the fight rules.

In a conversation with USA Today Sports, the Communications Manager for TDLR, Tela Mange, explained that fighters over 36 years old must provide positive results from an electroencephalogram (EEG) and an electrocardiogram (ECG). EEG is used to assess brain function, while ECG is used to detect heart problems.

By the time of stepping into the ring, Mike Tyson will be 58 years old, which is 31 years older than Paul.

Iron Mike retired from professional boxing in 2005, and his last fight was in 2020 when he had an exhibition match against Roy Jones Jr.

Tyson and Paul are scheduled to face off in a boxing match on July 20th at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, USA, as the main event of the card, which will be broadcast on Netflix. It was previously reported that the fight would be sanctioned as a professional one.

Yesterday, Tyson also made a sensational statement, declaring that the three years he spent in prison were the happiest in his life.

"I spent the best three years of my life in prison. I was at peace with myself. Listen, money means nothing if you don't have peace, stability, balance. You must have a sound mind to control every aspect of your life. I have always said that God punishes you by giving you everything you want, to see if you can handle it," said Tyson.

A few days ago, Tyson also presented cannabis lollipops in the kit of a chewed off ear. This is a reference to Iron Mike's legendary fight against Evander Holyfield in 1997, when Tyson bit off part of his opponent's ear.

Jake Paul has become famous for his Youtube vlog. In August 2018, the blogger decided to start a career as a boxer. At the moment, he has 10 fights on his account, in which he got 9 wins (6 by knockout) and one defeat.
