On November 3, 2023, it was reported that Netflix was considering streaming a boxing match involving Jake Paul.

On March 7, 2024, it was announced that Netflix and Most Valuable Promotions had partnered to host an event headlined by Paul facing former undisputed heavyweight world champion Mike Tyson on July 20 at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The event will be streamed globally exclusively on Netflix.

On April 2, Tyson confirmed at that time the fight was to be classified as an exhibition bout and was not set to be recorded on their professional records. In response to rumors of 18-ounce gloves and headgear, Tyson said in an interview, "not true at all", and clarified: "This is called an exhibition, but if you look up exhibition, you will not see any of the laws that we're fighting under. This is a fight." On April 10, Paul confirmed that they will be submitting a request to the Texas Combative Sports Program for the bout to be sanctioned as a professional bout.

On April 16, Netflix confirmed that the long awaited rematch between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano for the WBA, WBC, IBF, WBO, and The Ring lightweight titles would be the co-feature bout.

On April 29, the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations confirmed it approved the fighters' request, and the bout will be a sanctioned, professional fight. The bout will consist of 8 2-minute rounds with 14-ounce gloves.

Among the bouts featured on the undercard, Ashton Sylve and Floyd Schofield are scheduled to meet in the 10-round bout at lightweight. Julio César Chávez Jr. and Darren Till are scheduled to meet in the six-round bout at cruiserweight.
