Mike Tyson has sensationally admitted he would be open to the idea of facing three of boxing’s heavyweight stars in a series of exhibition bouts for charity.

The 54-year-old will make his long-awaited, albeit controversial, return to the ring against Roy Jones Jr on November 28 and has undertaken a rigorous training regime to build up his physique.
And in a recent interview with BT Sport just days before the showdown, Tyson revealed his sights are firmly set on aiding people who ‘desperately need it’ through raising money in the future.
Tyson was once dubbed the ‘baddest man on the planet’, but hasn’t competed since retiring 15 years ago.
“I think they’re brilliant. They’re brilliant fighters,’ Tyson said. ‘They could do so much for society.
“They could have exhibitions, and take the money from the exhibitions, because they’re such big crowd-pleasers, and they could help so many people.
“There’s so many people out there that we can do so much for, and it wouldn’t even be a tenth of their charitable heart to do something like that.
“In fact, fight exhibitions with me, and most of our charity would go to people who desperately need it.’
Tyson is keen to stress, however, that the match-ups would solely be charity-related, and that there is no bad blood between him and the sport’s biggest names.
He added: “I want you to label them as exhibitions because there’s no hard feelings.’
Iron Mike has vowed to donate his fight purse for the exhibition with Jones, which will take on a different feel.
The California State Athletic Commission insisted that both fighters faced ‘thorough’ medical examinations and anti-doping tests.
