Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson experienced a medical scare on a flight from Miami to Los Angeles on Sunday, his representatives told the New York Post on Monday.

Tyson became “nauseous and dizzy” 30 minutes before landing due to an ulcer flare-up, they said.

“Thankfully Mr. Tyson is doing great,” his representatives wrote in an email. “He is appreciative to the medical staff that were there to help him,” they added.


Paramedics boarded the aircraft after it landed to tend to Tyson, a source told In Touch Weekly.

Tyson, 57, is less than two months from returning to the boxing ring for a highly anticipated fight against YouTube star turned prizefighter Jake Paul on July 20. The event will take place at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and be streamed live on Netflix.

Tyson’s fight against Paul will be his first professional bout since a 2005 loss to Kevin McBride. Tyson, who turns 58 next month, fought Roy Jones Jr. to a draw in a 2020 exhibition match. Paul, 9-1 as a pro, is three decades younger than Tyson at 27.
