Rumors and info have floated since 53-year-old Mike Tyson announced his intention to return to the boxing ring to take part in the exhibition battle. Everyone from New Zealand rugby star Sonny Bill Williams to Tyson Fury’s father to his former rival, Evander Holyfield, put their names in the mix as potential opponents. Tyson said he hoped a fight will raise money to “help some homeless and drug-influenced mothers —– like me.”
Now, Tyson shares footage of some work gloves and the former heavyweight champion still seems to have a frightening combination of speed and strength.
Tyson ended the video with a simple message, stating, “I’m back.”
Holyfield has become the most interesting potential opponent for Tyson’s re-exhibition. The 57-year-old has also tried to return to the ring for charity fights and the like said Sky Sports“I don’t know, you have to ask him! I won’t ask anyone to do anything they don’t want to do. But this is for charity. If we can do something that works for everyone, then it’s win-win-win . “
Holyfield won the first meeting between the two by TKO in November 1996, a fight in which he opened as a 25-1 underdog. Their rematch was more famous than a pair of fights, with Tyson biting Holyfield’s ears before finally being disqualified.
