The highly anticipated heavyweight boxing match between Mike Tyson and Jake Paul has been postponed.

In a statement, the fight’s organizers said the decision was made following a consultation with medical professionals on Thursday, which revealed that Tyson had developed a stomach ulcer.

The blockbuster fight was scheduled for July 20 in Arlington, Texas, and is expected to draw a huge audience on Netflix, where the streamer will broadcast the fight.

According to Most Value Promotions (MVP), Mike Tyson is recommended to do minimal to light training over the next few weeks and then return to full training without restrictions.

“Both Mike and Jake agree that it is only fair to ensure that both athletes have equal training time to prepare for this important fight and compete at the highest level,” MVP said in a statement.

“The health and wellbeing of athletes is our top priority and we fully support Mike in taking the time he needs to deliver the performance he expects of himself.

“Mike is expected to return to his full training program in the coming weeks and can’t wait to get back in the ring. MVP expects to schedule the fight later this year at AT&T Stadium and we look forward to an exciting and well-prepared contest between these two exceptional athletes. The new date of the fight will be announced by next Friday, June 7th.”

“We thank you for your understanding and patience during this time and wish Mike a speedy recovery.”

Tyson, 57, said his body was in top shape and vowed to return to full training soon, taking a swipe at Paul.

“I would like to thank my fans around the world for their support and understanding during this time,” said the heavyweight boxing icon.

“Unfortunately, due to the recurrence of my stomach ulcer, my doctor has advised me to reduce my training for a few weeks to rest and recover.

“My body is in better shape overall than it has been since the 1990s and I will soon be resuming my full training program.

“Jake Paul, this may have bought you some time, but at the end of the day you will still be knocked out and out of boxing forever. I appreciate everyone’s patience and I can’t wait to put on an unforgettable performance later this year.”

Tyson tweeted earlier this week: “I feel 100% now, although that is not necessary to beat Jake Paul.”

The former champion reportedly suffered a medical emergency during a fight this week, while footage of Tyson training continues to terrify boxing fans.

There was speculation that Tyson and Paul would wear headgear in an exhibition fight, but the fight was sanctioned as a professional bout.

Paul, 27, said he would be willing to fight Tyson if they ever step into the ring together.

“I am fully in favor of postponing the event so that Mike Tyson has no excuses on fight night,” said the YouTuber.

“My fans know that I only want to face Iron Mike at my best, but I can’t be mistaken – when he steps into the ring with me, I will be ready to achieve my victory with a sensational finish. Paul vs. Tyson will be a fight for the ages and I promise to give my best in this once in a lifetime duel.”
