- Mike Tyson seems to be planning to end his retirement by fighting Deontay Wilder
- The American boxing legend retired from boxing 15 years ago
- Shannon Briggs claims Tyson would beat the current WBC holder if they ever fight
American boxing legend Mike Tyson is reportedly planning to come out of retirement and is believed to be ready and willing to take on Deontay Wilder.
The 53-year-old was one of the very best during his career - winning 50 of his 58 fights over the span of 20 years.
Tyson remains one of the youngest and toughest boxers to have won at the very top of boxing's elite category.
Unlike Tyson, the Bronze Bomber is yet to lose any of his professional fights and he is due to face off with Tyson Fury in part two of their bout on 22 February.
Asked who the eventual winner would be if the fight ever happened, Briggs told EsNews: "Tyson will win! You crazy? Before you go in the ring with Mike Tyson, you lose everything you win in the training camp out of fear."
Tyson retired from boxing after successive defeats to Danny Williams and Kevin McBride.
Meanwhile, the former WBO winner outrightly rejected fighting Tyson when he was asked, saying:
"No, no, that's my boy. I love him as my big bro. But he said he still wants to fight, though. He said he still wants to fight!"
Meanwhile, Anthony Joshua has dismissed Tyson Fury's claim that American boxer Deontay Wilder would knock him out in just two rounds.
