Mike Tyson is ready to get back in the ring!

On Friday, June 7, promotion company Most Valuable Promotions (MVP) announced that the highly-anticipated fight between the legendary boxer, 57, and the YouTuber-turned-fighter Jake Paul, 27, has been rescheduled following Tyson's diagnosis with an ulcer flare-up late last month.

Their match-up is now set for Nov. 15 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, where Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano will also go head-to-head. Tyson and Paul's fight was initially scheduled for July 20 before the health complication.

"Although we had to postpone the fight, I will resume training shortly," Tyson said in a release shared by MVP.

He added, "I am thankful to the medical staff that treated me and to MVP, Netflix, and AT&T Stadium for working diligently to find the best reschedule date for all parties. While we have a new date, the result will be the same no matter when we fight. Jake Paul is getting knocked out. On Friday, November 15, watch this in-person at AT&T Stadium or live on Netflix.”

As previously reported, the fight was postponed in late May after Tyson had a mid-flight health emergency when he "became nauseous and dizzy due to an ulcer flare-up 30 minutes before landing," a rep for the athlete told PEOPLE. At the time, the spokesperson said Tyson was "doing great" and was "appreciative to the medical staff that were there to help him."

In Touch reported that Tyson was on board an American Airlines flight from Miami to Los Angeles amid the health concern.

"I want to thank my fans around the world for their support and understanding during this time. Unfortunately, due to my ulcer flareup, I have been advised by my doctor to lighten my training for a few weeks to rest and recover," Tyson previously said in a release when the fight was postponed.

"My body is in better overall shape than it has been since the 1990s and I will be back to my full training schedule soon," he continued, before dissing his opponent. "Jake Paul, this may have bought you some time, but in the end you will still be knocked out and out of boxing for good. I appreciate everyone’s patience and can't wait to deliver an unforgettable performance later this year."
