REVEALED: VIP tickets for Paul vs. Tyson to cost $2MILLION

The promoters of Jake Paul’s controversial fight with Mike Tyson are offering VIP packages for up to $2million which will give fans a string of perks including ringside seats and penthouse accommodation at the fighters’ hotel.

Youtuber-turned-boxer Paul takes on the former undisputed heavyweight champion at the home of the Dallas Cowboys on July 20.

There will be more than 30 years between Paul (27) and Tyson, who turns 58 next month, by the time the first bell rings at AT&T Stadium.

But promoters for the Netflix event claim more than 121,000 fans have signed up for pre-sale access before tickets are officially released next week. 

Among those, according to Paul’s Most Valuable Promotions, 35,000 people want to sit on the floor of the venue while more than 10,000 are eyeing VIP seats.

Organizers are offering a $2million package for fight night, which includes a host of benefits including two ringside seats and four seats in both the first and second rows on the floor.

Fans will also receive a pre-fight photo with Paul and Tyson from inside the locker rooms, as well as gloves signed by both fighters and two nights at the hotel where the boxers will stay. 

Promoters say both Tyson and Paul are expected to make eight figures from the fight.

‘We’re hoping that this becomes the most viewed streaming event in sports in the US,’ Nakisa Bidarian, co-founder of MVP, said.

Tyson, who will be 58 come fight night, has not fought a professional bout for nearly 20 years 

The controversial Paul, 27, has had just 10 professional contests since his debut in 2020

Tyson, 57, has not fought a professional fight for nearly 20 years, since he was beaten by Irishman Kevin McBride in 2005. 

Tyson’s last outing in the ring came in November 2020, when he faced Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition entitled ‘Lockdown Knockdown’. 

But this fight was recently sanctioned by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations (TDLR), with the two fighters competing in 14oz gloves over eight, 2-minute rounds. 

Also on the card is Katie Taylor’s rematch with Amanda Serrano for the undisputed super lightweight crown, two years after they headlined in a classic at Madison Square Garden.

Tyson’s official record stands at 50 wins (44 knockouts) and six defeats. Paul, on the other hand, has had just 10 professional contests since his debut in 2020.
