Reps Say Mike Tyson ‘Doing Great’ After Mid-Flight Medical Scare

Boxing legend Mike Tyson is reportedly recovering well after experiencing a medical issue during a flight from Miami to Los Angeles on Sunday. Tyson’s representatives confirmed to The Post that the 57-year-old became “nauseous and dizzy due to an ulcer flare up 30 minutes before landing.”

Passengers on the American Airlines flight heard an announcement asking for medical professionals roughly half an hour before the plane touched down in Los Angeles. The incident, initially described as an “apparent medical scare” by In Touch Weekly, delayed passengers from disembarking for approximately 25 minutes as paramedics attended to Tyson.

Despite the concerning situation, Tyson’s representatives assured that he is “doing great” and expressed his appreciation for the medical staff who assisted him. The former heavyweight champion is scheduled to fight Jake Paul on July 20 in Dallas, marking his return to the ring since his last sanctioned fight in June 2005 and an exhibition match against Roy Jones Jr. in November 2020.

As Tyson prepares for the highly-anticipated bout, the recent medical scare serves as a reminder of the challenges that come with age, even for a legendary athlete. Fans and the boxing community alike will undoubtedly be monitoring Tyson’s health closely leading up to the fight.
