Once called ‘the baddest man on the planet’ and the most aggressive boxing icon, Mike Tyson is set to come out of retirement and step into the ring at the age of 54. Mike Tyson’s return will be more than just a fight. Millions from around the world and kids who haven’t seen him dominate in the late 80s and 90s will have a chance to watch one of the most recognized fighters of all time on September 12, 2020.
A heavyweight champion aged just 20, was unstoppable during his early years as he dominated the sport in the late 1980s and became the only heavyweight boxer to unify WBA, WBC, and IBF title which made him the most feared fighter in the world of boxing.
After his retirement in 2005 following his straight loss and plethora of controversies, he is set to meet four-division champion Roy Jones Jr. in an eight-round exhibition match. Jones who is 51 has won titles in the middleweight, super middleweight and light heavyweight before moving up to win the heavyweight title in 2003, becoming the first former middleweight champion to do so in 106 years. This bout is going to be super exciting.
