Who should Mike Tyson fight?
There have been some possible opponents that reportedly have been considered for the return of Mike Tyson. As per the WBC heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury he was offered to fight Miky Tyson in a charity match.
Besides that, there were speculations that Evander Holyfield will take on Mike Tyson in a trilogy. The former champion even came out and agreed to fight Tyson on many occasions. However, that fight has not seen any progression in recent times. Fans have also started fantasizing about Tyson getting into the boxing ring with an MMA fighter.
Former UFC light heavyweight champion, Tito Ortiz was the first one to call out Tyson to a charity match. However, that fight is very unlikely to happen anytime soon. However, recently talking about UFC fighters asking for more pay, Tyson said that UFC fighters will have to fight a top boxer to make super money.
And in the process, he caught the attention of Jon Jones by saying that Jones will have to fight him if he wants to get paid. And since then the fans are hyping this fight up as they are two of the biggest names in the combat sports history.
Tyson has a rich history when it comes to his achievements and dominance in the boxing world. On the other hand, Jon Jones is arguably the greatest mixed martial artists to ever do it despite his controversial life outside the octagon.
Even though it seems a bit unlikely that Tyson would get into the boxing ring with Jon Jones the super-fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather does give hope to the fight fans.
