Tyson reportedly became nauseous and dizzy during the flight, prompting flight staff to seek assistance from any medical professionals onboard. Paramedics were called upon the plane’s arrival in Los Angeles, where Tyson received treatment. The flight had already been delayed by two hours in Miami due to the heat.

The incident occurred just two months ahead of Tyson’s scheduled fight against YouTuber-turned-boxer Jake Paul in Dallas. Tyson’s representatives assured that he is now doing well, attributing his discomfort to an ulcer flare-up that occurred 30 minutes before landing.

“Thankfully, Mr. Tyson is doing great,” his representatives told The New York Post. “He became nauseous and dizzy due to an ulcer flare-up. He is appreciative of the medical staff that were there to help him.”

Ulcer flare-ups typically manifest with symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, bloating, chest pain, and fatigue. Tyson’s medical episode caused concern among passengers, with cabin crew issuing an announcement and paramedics boarding the plane upon arrival in Los Angeles.

Eyewitnesses recounted the incident, noting Tyson’s importance as a passenger and the urgency to ensure his well-being. Following the landing, there was an additional delay of approximately 25 minutes while Tyson received medical attention.

“He was in first class, but we were an exit row,” an eyewitness said. “They asked us to stay on the plane and landed so paramedics could enter. The stewardess said, ‘He’s a really important passenger so we want to make sure he’s OK.’ I knew it was him, but I just mouthed the words ‘Mike Tyson,’ and she nodded her head yes.”

Tyson, who has admitted to daily marijuana use in the past, has refrained from using the substance during his training for the upcoming fight, as it is listed as a banned substance by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. Additionally, he has temporarily abstained from sexual activity as part of his training regimen.
