Boxer Mike Tyson suffered what was later determined to have been a "ulcer flare up" while on board a weekend flight from Miami to LA.


The 57-year-old is "doing great" after the incident that occurred just before landing, his representatives insisted.

"He became nauseous and dizzy due to an ulcer flare up 30 minutes before landing," his representatives said in an email to The Post. "He is appreciative to the medical staff that were there to help him."

In Touch Weekly was first to report Tyson’s scare, which they categorized as a "medical emergency."

"Mike had some kind of medical emergency on the plane and paramedics boarded," a source told In Touch Weekly. "Before the paramedics arrived, the flight issued an announcement asking for a doctor – the message even came on everyone’s screens."

Passengers were delayed exiting the flight for around 25 minutes as a result of Tyson's health emergency.

"He was in first class, but we were in an exit row and the stewardess was very chatty," a source told In Touch Weekly. "They asked us to stay on the plane and landed, so paramedics could enter. She said something like, ‘He’s a really important passenger so we wanna make sure he’s OK.’ I knew it was him, but I just mouthed the words ‘Mike Tyson,’ and she nodded her head yes."

Paul is the -215 favorite to win what is now a sanctioned flight against Tyson (+175) on July 20
