Eager to stay active, Paul quickly pivoted to Perry as his opponent, recognizing the challenge Perry presents and the experience it would provide ahead of his rescheduled fight with Tyson.

Paul’s Perspective

“When Paul vs Tyson was rescheduled, I knew I still wanted to fight on July 20. Preparing for Tyson, there’s no better opponent than Mike Perry. He’s a KO artist and a madman in and out of the ring. This will be perfect experience for Tyson. Risky, but I love taking risks. Perry will try to finish me, but I’m Jake Paul and fear no man. I will win and give a preview of what’s coming against Tyson.”

This match against Paul will be Perry’s second professional boxing bout, having previously fought in 2015.
