Jake Paul might still be returning to the ring in July after all.

Happy Punch has reported that Paul will compete against Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) star and former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight, Mike Perry, on July 20, 2024. The report did not specify what type of contest the match up would be or where. That date was originally scheduled to be Paul’s 11th professional boxing match (9-1) against Mike Tyson in AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Paul vs. Tyson was recently delayed and rebooked for the venue on November 15, 2024. The change in timing came as a result of Tyson suffering an ulcer flare-up and brief hospitalization.

Should Perry, 32, be the next man to challenge the 27-year-old “Problem Child” in the boxing ring, it will be Perry’s return to gloved combat for the first time since his UFC departure in April 2021 and his first boxing match since 2015. However, Perry has been flawless in life after UFC, winning five consecutive bare-knuckle boxing (BKB) matches in BKFC.

The closest Perry has gotten to stepping into the ring with gloves on came when he was the official backup fighter for Logan Paul vs. Dillon Danis in October 2023.
