The much-anticipated event, set to take place on July 20 at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, seems balanced, with both fighters competing for victory and glory.

Amid the outbreak of excitement surrounding this unique matchup, UFC legend Henry Cejudo recently shed light on the financial side of the showdown, revealing that Tyson is set to earn a staggering $20 million for his participation in the fight.

Cejudo, known for his insightful talks and analysis, shared his opinion on Tyson's potential payday during an episode of his podcast with co-host Kamaru Usman.

Reflecting on the importance of Tyson's return to the ring at the age of 57, Cejudo pointed out the lucrative nature of the match, emphasizing that Tyson's age is not a hindrance to his earning potential.

"He’s probably gonna wind up making close to about 20 mil as he’s about to turn 58. I mean literally Jake Paul’s 27 Mike Tyson is 57," Cejudo said.

With decades of experience and a status as a legend in boxing, Tyson certainly attracts a lot of money, making the possibility of facing him all the more enticing for his opponents.
