Mike Tyson has continued to train hard ahead of his return to the ring. The 53-year-old has been linked to participating in an exhibition competition for some charity.
50 Cent has now shown confidence in the retired boxer saying this shape can win him another title Curtis James Jackson III popularly known as 50 Cent believes Mike Tyson can win another heavyweight title after watching the 53-year-old punch hard during training.
The American rap artist, actor, and producer claims his countryman can walk confidently back into the ‘squared circle’ for some real action.
Mike Tyson is poised to make a return to the ring for the first time in 15 years. Tyson shared another clip of him throwing heavy punches at his training pads after which he turned to the camera roaring, “I’m back!” And the rapper who bought Tyson’s mansion says the youngest ever heavyweight champion could win another title with his form if he is serious about coming out of retirement as reported by Sport Bible.
The Power star and huge boxing fan wrote: “Mike looks like he can win another title. Wait there gotta be some more money around here.”
Tyson has been challenged by Tyson Fury’s father, but the American revealed he has been training for an exhibition tourney for some charity after getting back to shape. Despite losing three of his last four fights before retirement, the baddest man feels extremely ready to help campaign against addiction and homelessness as part of his return to the ring.
“That’s all I’ve been doing, getting into shape,’ Tyson said on a #PlayApartTogether live stream on Facebook. “I feel unstoppable now. I feel the same [as when I was in my prime] again. The gods of war ignited my ego and want me to go to war again.
“Imagine if I went out there and fought and I could help all these people we talked about.” He has also been offered a chance to fight two-time Rugby union World Cup winner Sonny Bill Williams in Australia.
But the former heavyweight champion was quick to shut the idea down, saying he will only fight a certified boxer so as not to make a mockery of the sport. Meanwhile, a close pal to Tyson told SunSport:
“Mike has ruled out the prospect of the exhibition bout in Australia because he does not want to fight a cross-over athlete. “If Mike returns to boxing, it will only be to fight another bonafide boxer. Mike believes anything else would be an insult to the sport.”
At the same time, Evander Holyfield, whose ear Tyson bit during their fight in 1997 has also made his intentions known to be back in the ring for some exhibition matches and is expressed an interest in another encounter. Legit.ng earlier reported that Evander Holyfield has opened up about renewing his feud with his former rival Mike Tyson in a charity boxing match.
The pair went to battle into 1996 and 1997 and Holyfield wants a trilogy to happen including clash with former champion Riddick Bowe. The Real Deal is set to get back into the ring for an exhibition fight nine years after his last fight with Danish Brian Nielsen but this time he wants to come face-to-face with the Baddest man on the Planet.
