Netflix continues to increase its investment in the live sports segment.

Whindersson, who has had five boxing matches in recent years, will face the Indian boxer Neeraj Goyatin an event that will be broadcast worldwide on Netflix, in collaboration with Most Valued Promotions (MVP). Tickets sold for fights reached the highest gross in the history of boxing or MMA in the American state, mainly thanks to Mike Tyson’s return to the ring after almost 20 years.

Mike Tyson, the main attraction of the Netflix event

The American legend, now 57 years old, has had an almost flawless career. There were 58 professional fights between 1985 and 2005, with 50 wins (44 by knockout), 6 losses and two retirements. Tyson also achieved 37 consecutive victories between 1985 and 1989.

Its last meeting took place in 2005, in Washington, United States. On that occasion, Mike Tyson lost to Irishman Kevin McBride. But, strangely, Jake Paul opened as the favorite at the bookmakers. The influencer has victories against big names in MMA, such as Anderson Silva and Nate Diaz.

The most important fight of the comedian’s career was against one of the greatest boxers of all time, world champion Acelino “Popó” Freitas, which lasted eight rounds and ended in a draw.
