The match is slated for July 20 at the AT&T Stadium in Texas and will be accessible to all Netflix subscribers. Further details, such as the co-main event and undercard matches, will be disclosed later. The event is a collaboration between Netflix and Most Valuable Promotions (MVP), owned by Jake Paul and Nakisa Bidarian.

Paul and Tyson have shared a boxing card previously. Paul featured in the co-main event of a pay-per-view event where Tyson made his return to the ring in an exhibition match against Roy Jones Jr. in 2020. This marked Tyson's first boxing match since 2006. In that event, Paul secured victory in his second professional boxing match by knocking out former NBA player Nate Robinson in the second round.

Since his debut in January 2020, Paul has accumulated a professional record of 9 wins and 1 loss, with 6 knockouts. His most recent victory came on March 2, where he defeated Ryan Bourland via TKO. Meanwhile, Tyson boasts a professional record of 50 wins, 6 losses, with an impressive 44 knockouts to his name.

This venture marks Netflix's continued foray into live sports coverage. Recently, the streaming platform aired "The Netflix Slam," featuring a tennis showdown between Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz. Preceding that, they broadcasted the golf event "The Netflix Cup." Looking ahead, Netflix is poised to be the new weekly home for WWE's "Monday Night Raw" starting in 2025.
