Jake Paul and Mike Tyson's first face-off ignites fans anticipation as the titans are ready to make history

    With just over a month to go this marks the first of two pre-fight press conferences building up to their highly anticipated fight. The conference took place live from New York at the iconic Apollo Theater in Harlem, with the second scheduled for May 16 at the Texas Live sports bar in Arlington.

    The press conferences stood out for their inclusivity, inviting not just media but also boxing fans and followers to ask questions, which added an element of thrill and engagement. The audience also directed questions towards the fighters preceding Paul and Tyson. This fight will be between the undisputed lightweight champion Katie Taylor (23-1, 6 KOs) and four-belt featherweight and seven-division champion Amanda Serrano (46-2-1, 30 KOs).

    Why did Mike Tyson take the fight ?

    Because he is on his prime at 57, not really, Tyson described his decision to take this fight as a ‘no brainer’ and an opportunity to shake the sports world. I mean after he felt into bankruptcy in 2010 and still being in shape why not get more money doing what he loves. Tyson’s earnings for the fight are estimated at $20 million, while Paul‘s salary remains undisclosed.

    The event’s ticket sales and exclusive live broadcast on Netflix are expected to generate significant revenue through sponsorships and advertising. This is the second great live event Netflix will host being the tennis matchup between Carlos Alcaraz and Rafael Nadal the first one.

    Jake knows his role

    Jake Paul, often seen as a polarizing figure, views himself as Public Enemy No. 1, claiming that fighters are lining up to face him to ‘end the YouTube boxer’ phenomenon. However, a reporter confidently stated that Tyson will knock out Paul, leading to a heated exchange resulting in the reporter’s removal.

    Paul and Tyson also discussed the evolution of boxing, with Paul noting that modern fighters focus more on technique than brute strength, unlike fighters in Tyson’s era. Tyson emphasized the fight’s importance, stating it’s his chance to prove he’s still the best. Paul also mentioned plans to make boxing more accessible by working on initiatives to provide free gym access and also promised the fan to send him some Jake Paul gear to help him train.

    Tickets for the fight have soared to over $60,000 on the secondary market for ringside seats, with a $2 million VIP package offered. ‘The Experience,’ offers a comprehensive package with two ringside apron seats, four first row and four second-row floor seats, along with a security escort, an opportunity for a locker room photo, signed gloves from both fighters, pre-fight access, and a luxurious two-night stay in a penthouse suite with four additional hotel rooms.
