Mike Tyson is easily one of the most legendary fighters of all time and despite being 53 years old, there is still an appetite for him to come back to fighting. Recently, Tyson admitted his desire to get back into the ring and has also been posting training videos of himself where he looks like an absolute menace. His punching power is still scary and if he were to fight again today, he could do some serious damage.
Now, Tyson is getting offers from all around the world, to fight again. In fact, he recently received a lucrative offer from David Feldman who is the president of the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championships. It is being reported that the deal is upwards of $20 million guaranteed and as Feldman explained, Tyson’s recent videos are what propelled him to reach out.
“The excitement the whole world was getting from Mike’s training videos, led us to make him an offer,” Feldman told MMA Fighting. “He’s a legend and it’s just a honor to be able to talk with his team. We will see where things go from here, it will be an honor to work with Mike in any scenario.”
Bare-knuckle fighting would certainly be a bit of a stretch for Tyson although perhaps he would be looking to get involved in some light charity matches, with gloves on. As of right now, it remains to be seen what he will do next.
