Mike Tyson breaks his silence after medical emergency - and gives update on his condition - ahead of Jake Paul fight

Mike Tyson insists he is back to '100 per cent' following a medical scare - just weeks before his showdown with Jake Paul.

The 57-year-old became nauseous and dizzy on a recent flight, forcing airline staff to ask passengers if there was a doctor on board. Paramedics eventually boarded the plane to treat Tyson after it touched down in Los Angeles.

It prompted fears over whether the July 20 fight would go ahead but on Tuesday Tyson wrote on social media: 'Now feeling 100% even though I don’t need to be to beat Jake Paul.'

The pair will be separated by 30 years by the time they meet in a controversial fight, broadcast on Netflix, on July 20 at the home of the Dallas Cowboys.

Tyson's representatives had previously insisted the former heavyweight champion was 'doing great' after 'an ulcer flare-up 30 minutes before landing.'
