Mike Tyson, one of the greatest boxers of all time, is making a surprising return to the ring this Saturday and nobody wants to miss this huge boxing fight. It’ll be an exhibition bout, of course, but people are excited to see ‘Iron Mike’ going at it again.
Tyson is 53 right now and has been retired for 15 years now. The former World Heavyweight champion is set to show his skillset this Saturday, proving that he still gets it. Tyson was known for his capacity to knock people out and seeing recent videos, he is still a threat to anybody trying to mess with him.
Tyson has always been a turning-head boxer for his performances in the ring and his antics and controversies in his personal life. He has changed a lot now but is ready to prove he’s still a dangerous man, even though his best days are way past him.
Who is Mike Tyson Fighting at 53?
Mike is fighting Roy Jones Jr, another former heavyweight champion. He was regarded as one of the best defensive boxers, as crazy as that sounds, and one of the greatest to ever enter the ring, although not at the same level as his Saturday’s rival. Jones Jr won 66 and lost 9 of his 75 professional fights.
