Mike Tyson Serious About A Comeback at 53!

The undisputed world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson is keeping in shape and reportedly ready for an exhibition match in Australia. Read on because a promoter wants Iron Mike Tyson to comeback and fight a former rugby star for $1 MILLION dollars!!!

CelebNSports247.com reports that Australian boxing matchmaker Brian Amatruda says he’s already reached out to Mike Tyson’s camp with the offer.

And apparently, Mike Tyson is interested. The Australian boxing matchmaker sees pro-rugby-players-turned-boxers Barry Hall, Paul Gallen and Sonny Bill Williams as potential opponents.

Amatruda told The Daily Mail this week:

He might be 53 years old but he’s still a huge name…and any of those blokes Hall, Gallen or Sonny Bill would jump at the chance to get into the ring with him.

Amatruda says the event would be MASSIVE and that THOUSANDS would flock to see it go down. Though the charity fight would have to happen after coronavirus pandemic clears up.

Amatruda adds:

I’d hold it at Melbourne Arena where we’d get over 10,000 or even Princes Park where they got 30,000 for Jeff Fenech versus Azumah Nelson. It would be enormous.

He went on to say:

Not just a fight, it would be an event.

Of course, it remains to be seen if Tyson is even serious about a return to the ring.

The boxing legend posted a clip of him recently terrorizing mitts in a scary training sesh and did tell rapper T.I. he’s interested in taking some exhibition fights to raise money for charities.
