Arguably the scariest heavyweight boxer of all-time “Iron” Mike Tyson has confirmed that he wants to return to boxing.
Is it a surprise to anyone that the youngest heavyweight boxing champion wants to return? After his first interview on the Joe Rogan Experience, a string of videos were seen showing Mike Tyson mentoring other fighters showing them footwork and his famous liver shot, right upper-cut combo.
From the videos, the 53-year-old former WBA/IBF heavyweight champion looked just as scary as he did back in his heyday.

In the video below, Mike Tyson talks to Joe Rogan about not wanting to train in fear that it would “re-activate his ego”.
It is unlikely that Mike Tyson will compete for the heavyweight title. It is also unlikely that we would see Mike Tyson fight against current champion Tyson “The Gypsy King” Fury who oddly enough, was named after “The Baddest Man on the Planet”. Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua are also out of the question.
Tyson was even offered a $20-million dollar guaranteed contract to fight in the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship which he initially turned down.
BKFC’s David Feldman is prepared to offer Tyson another deal stating the five 2-minute rounds “would really fit his fighting style and his age group right now.”
Mike Tyson did express interest in fighting in an exhibition for charity. The possibilities could include Lennox Lewis, Evander “Real Deal” Holyfield, and even Shannon “The Cannon” Briggs.
So, who would you like to see Mike Tyson fight Mike Tyson fight?
