With Mike Tyson out, Jake Paul is set to compete against former UFC fighter and now bare-knuckle boxer Mike Perry in a boxing match on July 20.

“When Paul vs. Tyson was rescheduled, I knew immediately that I wanted to still fight on Saturday, July 20. Now, as I prepare for my fight against Iron Mike, there’s no better opponent for me than Mike Perry,” said Paul.

The figh will be an eight-round cruiserweight bout aired on DAZN pay-per-view.

Jake Paul: This is the perfect experience

Paul is 9-1 as a pro boxer with six knockouts. His most recent performance ended in a first-round finish over Ryan Bourland last March in Puerto Rico.

“He’s a proven knockout artist who has shown to be a maniac in and out of the ring. This is the perfect experience for me to gain in advance of facing Mike Tyson. But getting that experience comes with risk. Those who know me know I’m a risk taker and while ‘Platinum’ Perry might try to end me, I’m Titanium Jake Paul and I fear no man. I’m going to get the W and give everyone a preview of what I’m bringing to the ring against Mike Tyson. Tune in on DAZN PPV as I return to Tampa and send ‘Platinum’ Perry the Platypus back to bare knuckle for good.”
