“Tyson is getting ready to do a boxing match with gloves,” said Rafael Cordeiro
Tyson revealed he will be making a comeback, after retiring from boxing nearly 15 years ago. Tyson’s career witnessed multiple ups and downs, with ‘Iron’ Mike retiring after his loss to Kevin McBride. Tyson has posted several videos on social media and looks as sharp and ferocious as ever. Also, Mike Tyson has received several mega offers, however, he’s yet to name his next opponent.
“Na, na we got many guys. Listen we’ve got so many guys that want to do this, man. We’re in calls, we’re doing business with guys right now. You’re not going to believe the names when the names come out. Sometime this week we’ll have the contract done. And whatever money we get, it’s going to somebody else. I’m not going to make any money – probably the company, my wife because she’s partners with me, she’ll make some probably. But my money is going to charity”, Said Tyson.
