Mike Tyson has assured fans that he feels “100%” despite a recent health scare, as he gears up for his July bout against YouTuber Jake Paul.

The 57-year-old former world heavyweight champion reportedly required medical attention on Sunday after experiencing nausea and dizziness during a flight from Miami to Los Angeles. Paramedics boarded the plane at Los Angeles International Airport to treat Tyson before other passengers were allowed to disembark.

The incident has sparked concerns as Tyson prepares for a controversial return to the ring against Paul in Texas on July 20. Many fear that the fighter, once known as the “baddest man on the planet,” could be at risk due to his age.

Despite this, Tyson remained upbeat, stating on Tuesday that he felt fine. “Now feeling 100% even though I don’t need to be to beat Jake Paul,” Tyson wrote in a brief post on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Tyson, who will turn 58 in June, will face the 27-year-old Paul in a professional bout consisting of eight two-minute rounds. The fight has been sanctioned by boxing authorities in Texas. Tyson has not fought a professional match since 2005, though he did participate in an exhibition fight against Roy Jones Jr. in 2020.
