Mike Tyson claims he has an even BIGGER star than Evander Holyfield lined up for charity comeback
Mike Tyson has revealed that an even bigger name star than Evander Holyfield has offered to fight him as the 53-year-old ramps up a highly-anticipated return to the ring.
'Iron Mike' has been training ahead of a return to boxing, with the former heavyweight king expected to compete in exhibition bouts for charity later this year.
The identity of Tyson's opponent is not yet known, but former foe Holyfield has expressed his desire to fight the American for a third time - after their first two brutal fights ended in wins for Holyfield.
However Tyson, who hung up his gloves in 2005 after a hugely successful 20-year career, has said that there are an array of names interested in fighting him, including one bigger than Holyfield.
Asked by Lil Wayne on his Young Money Radio show, via Metro, whether Holyfield was the man he would face, Tyson said: ‘Na, na we got many guys. Listen we’ve got so many guys that want to do this man.
‘We’re in calls, we’re doing business with guys right now. You’re not going to believe the names when the names come out. Some time this week we’ll have the contract done.
‘And whatever money we get, it’s going to somebody else. I’m not going to make any money – probably the company, my wife because she’s partners with me, she’ll make some probably. But my money is going [to charity].’
