Jake Paul, this may have bought you some time, but in the end, you will still be knocked out and out of boxing for good.”


Tyson’s In-Flight Medical Emergency

Reports indicated that Tyson suffered a medical emergency on a flight from Miami to Los Angeles on May 27. Paramedics boarded the plane after landing at Los Angeles International Airport. Tyson’s team later explained that he felt nauseous and dizzy due to an ulcer flareup just before landing.
