And the rapper who bought Tyson's mansion says the youngest ever heavyweight champion could win another title with his form if he is serious about coming out of retirement as reported by Sport Bible.
Briefly.co.za learned that 50 Cent wrote:
"Mike looks like he can win another title. Wait there gotta be some more money around here."
Tyson has been challenged by Tyson Fury's father, but the American revealed he has been training for an exhibition tourney for charity after getting back to shape.
Despite losing three of his last four fights before retirement, Tyson feels ready to help campaign against addiction and homelessness as part of his return to the ring.
"That's all I've been doing, getting into shape,' Tyson said on a #PlayApartTogether live stream on Facebook.
"I feel unstoppable now. I feel the same [as when I was in my prime] again. The gods of war ignited my ego and want me to go to war again.
"Imagine if I went out there and fought and I could help all these people we talked about."
He has also been offered a chance to fight two-time Rugby union World Cup winner Sonny Bill Williams in Australia.

But the former heavyweight champion was quick to shut the idea down, saying he will only fight a certified boxer so as not to make a mockery of the sport.
Meanwhile, a close pal to Tyson told SunSport: "Mike has ruled out the prospect of the exhibition bout in Australia because he does not want to fight cross-over athletes.
"If Mike returns to boxing, it will only be to fight another bonafide boxer. Mike believes anything else would be an insult to the sport."
At the same time, Evander Holyfield, whose ear Tyson bit during their fight in 1997 has also made his intentions known to be back in the ring for some exhibition matches and is expressed an interest in another encounter.
