Former boxer and heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, who came back in auge after declaring he wanted come back to fight exhibition matches, during some interviews released revealed that if he could fight against any boxer in history, he would surely have chosen and faced Floyd Mayweather.
Tyson retired in 2005, after losing by technical knockout to Kevin McBride, with a professional record of 50 wins and 6 defeats with 44 knockouts. Now the 53 year old appears in perfect shape, ready to return to the ring. During the various interviews, Iron Mike said that if he could choose to fight against any boxer in history, he would certainly have chosen Mayweather, facing him in a dirty way because according to Tyson you cannot beat Money in a clean way.
He said: "Well, I would have liked to face Floyd Mayweather. We could never fight, of course, because of the different weight class, but I would not face him in the way they all dealt with him. I would be bad, I would be dirty.
Because it is impossible face it cleanly. You can't fight this boy cleanly." As for Tyson's return to the ring, fans around the world hope for the trilogy with Evander Holyfield; according to the latest rumors, the two former world heavyweight champions would be in talks for a three-round performance match.
Holyfield won two previous matches, the second (which took place in 1997) by disqualification after Tyson took a bite off his ear with a bite. For the moment, the two are battling at a distance with social video with training sessions.
