Mike Tyson has sensationally suggested that he could make a return to the sport of boxing once again.
The 56-year-old has nothing left to prove in the sport, but whetted the appetite of fans once again with his 2020 exhibition against Roy Jones Jr.
While it did end up in a draw, the pay-per-view numbers, reportedly 1.6 million, suggested that Tyson was still popular as ever. Fights with Jake Paul, Logan Paul and Evander Holyfield have been proposed.
The former two would generate huge sums of money since Jake has been vocal about fighting Tyson, while a fight with Holyfield would be a throwback bout, giving fans a chance for the trilogy that they never got to see.
“I could be persuaded. [I] can’t express himself financially. I don’t know. When I see the money people for the end of the product, my mind works clearer. I can’t express myself right now financially,” Tyson speaking to TMZ
Nevertheless, the chances of this appear slim. Jake has since then moved on to face Nate Diaz while at the same time trying to face legitimate boxing contenders, having fought Tommy Fury.
Meanwhile, Logan’s ambitions appear to be in the WWE, having appeared at Wrestlemania. Regardless, fans were keen to see Tyson take to the ring.
