Mike Tyson is reported to have faced a “major issue” on a flight from Miami to Los Angeles before his match with Jake Paul

Mike Tyson was reportedly hospitalized urgently on a flight from Miami to Los Angeles before his fight with Jake Paul.

Tyson’s team told Us Weekly that he’s “doing great” following his recent medical emergency. “He became nauseous and dizzy due to an ulcer flare-up 30 minutes before landing,” his rep shared in a statement to Us on Monday. “He is appreciative of the medical staff that were there to help him.”

In Touch shared the news on Monday, May 27, that paramedics boarded the airplane after the flight landed at the Los Angeles International Airport. “Before the paramedics arrived, the flight issued an announcement asking for a doctor — the message even came on everyone’s screens,” an eyewitness told the publication.

Us Weekly has reached out to Tyson’s rep for comment.

Tyson, 57, is gearing up to fight influencer Jake Paul in a live event set to air via Netflix on July 20. Tyson and Paul, 27, will fight at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The duo came face-to-face during a press conference earlier this month, discussing the highly anticipated fight.

“Mike wanted this to be a pro fight. He wants the war. I respect him for stepping up and trying to put an end to me,” Paul said on May 13. Tyson responded, complimenting Paul at first. “I really like Jake a lot,” the legendary boxer hit back. “But once he’s in the ring he has to fight like his life depends on it — because it will.”
