Mike Tyson is looking to come out of retirement for a good cause.
When Mike Tyson was at the top of his game, he was absolutely unstoppable. Iron Mike Tyson was the undisputed Heavyweight champion of the world and his knockout power is unlike anything we have ever seen. He used to be a menace in the ring and opponents feared him every time he suited up for a bout. Now, Tyson is mostly seen as a pop culture staple who has his very own podcast and also grows his own strains of weed.
Recently, Tyson was on Instagram live with T.I. and during the session, the legendary fighter made an interesting admission. As it turns out, Tyson is interested in getting back into shape so that he can partake in some fights. Simply put, Tyson wants to make a comeback, albeit, for a good cause.
“I want to go to the gym and get in shape to be able to box three-or four-round exhibitions for some charities," he said. Of course, Tyson is 53 years old which isn't exactly conducive to being a high-level athlete. However, Tyson says these matches wouldn't be very long and that the stakes would be very low.
Fans seem to be excited by the notion of a Tyson comeback although it probably won't happen anytime soon. If anything, we will have to wait a while for this one to play out.
