Mike Tyson is taking a break from preparing for his fight with Jake Paul by unwinding at the Miami Open.

The 57-year-old will fight the influencer-turned-boxer on July 20 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The fight will also be the first boxing event to air on Netflix.

On Tuesday, Tyson was seen at the Hard Rock Stadium enjoying tennis action.

A video posted by Sky Sports showed Tyson wearing his credentials while waiting to be let into his seat at the venue. Shortly after, Iron Mike got seated and enjoyed the quarterfinal match between Vika Azarenka and Yulia Putintseva.

On March 13, Tyson shared the first glimpse into his preparation with a short training montage on social media.

‘It’s day one. The fun has just begun,’ he says in the ten-second clip.

Paul holds a 9-1 boxing record and is coming off three straight wins, the last two being finishes. Paul will head into the fight fresh from a first-round knockout over Ryan Bourland on March 2.

On the other hand, the much older Tyson held a 50-6 professional record with 44 knockouts before retiring in 2005. Tyson returned to the ring in 2020 for an exhibition against Roy Jones Jr., during which Paul knocked former NBA star Nate Robinson in the co-main event.

With their showdown cemented, Tyson has become the biggest name in Paul’s list of high-profile opponents. Paul has been known for bringing athletes out of retirement to face them in the boxing ring, which has been the knock on him for most of his career.

Paul has faced the likes of Robinson, Ben Askren, Tyron Woodley, Anderson Silva, and Nate Diaz- scoring wins against each one. His lone defeat came against Tommy Fury in 2023.
