Just recently, boxing promoter Brian Amatruda claimed he is ready to offer as much as $1million to the former heavyweight champion to come out of retirement and fight either ex-rugby league players Barry Hall and Paul Gallen or All Blacks legend Sonny Williams.
The 53-year-old retired boxer has recently disclosed that he is ready to return into the ring as he has been training with MMA mastermind Rafael Cordeiro for a couple of weeks now.
Cordeiro who is the head coach at Kings MMA in California has stated that it will take another five months for Tyson to be in shape for about, however, an offer is already on the cards.
And now Tyson famously known as the ‘baddest man on the planet’ has shown how his training is going, with the former champ finishing it by turning to the camera and announcing 'I'm back!'
Tyson, fellow Americans Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis dominated the heavyweight division of boxing in the 1990s, but a comeback is never ruled out.
Holyfield, who beat the 'Baddest Man on the Planet' twice, including the fight with the infamous ear-biting incident, has also talked about wanting a comeback.
Finally Lewis also got involved, tweeting a cheeky hint that he could also return to the ring, just months after the trio were invited into the ring ahead of Tyson Fury beating Deontay Wilder in February.
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that former welterweight champion Ricky Hatton believes Mike Tyson's proposed comeback into the rings might end up bad for the American.
The 53-year-old has been training heavily lately showing his speedy and dangerous uppercuts in a bid to grace four-round exhibition fights for charity.
