For those concerned that Mike Tyson’s health issue might affect his highly-anticipated fight against YouTuber Jake Paul in July, your worries seem unnecessary.

“Thankfully, Mr. Tyson is doing great,” Tyson’s representatives said. “He became nauseous and dizzy due to an ulcer flare-up 30 minutes before landing. He is appreciative to the medical staff that were there to help him.”

Several reports of passengers asking for medical assistance for the former champ added to concerns on Monday as reports of the incident circulated on the internet.

Tyson, 57, is scheduled to fight Jake Paul at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on July 20. Paul, who holds a 7-1 professional record, accused the media of exaggerating Tyson’s health scare to create drama.

“You love to make sh*t up before knowing the facts for clicks/likes,” Paul said.

The YouTuber has been very vocal about his plans for the former champ.

“But what I promise to the people on July 20th: Mike will be put to sleep, and he will feel my power,” Paul said weeks ago. “I will go down as the man who put Tyson to sleep for the last time.”
