Tyson Fury claims he has accepted an offer to fight 53-year-old Mike Tyson, his longtime idol and also the fighter he got his name from.
From The Sun:
The super showdown is believed to be just one of Iron Mike’s return fights after his jaw-dropping return to fitness some 15 years after he retired.
Fury – who wants to see Tyson take on Holyfield for a third time – told BT Sport: “I did get a phone call with a chance to fight Mike Tyson. I was like ‘what?’
“Yeah, I had a phone call saying ‘would you like to fight Mike Tyson in an exhibition fight?’ I was like ‘hell yeah!’”
Fury, who previously said he would beat Tyson in an amazing cross-era bout, added: “But I don’t think anything’s materialised out of it to be honest.
“So yeah I think he’s [Mike Tyson] definitely serious about doing some fights or whatever, but he’s fought Holyfield twice so they’re both old now, so I think they’re a bit long in the teeth.
“But who am I to say anything, what anybody’s capable of? I wouldn’t try and kill anybody’s dreams. “If they’re both fit to fight, medically fit, then let them do what they want to do. It’s their life not mine.”
How could you not be hyped for this? Tyson is 53 years old. 53. That’s just under a decade away from senior citizenship and he’s going to hop in the ring to fight a man over 20 years his junior. Bouncing back from retirement at that age and winning would be an incredible feat — even if we weren’t talking about a sport where the goal is to give your opponent the bigger concussion. Mike Tyson’s return from retirement would be unlike anything the sports world has ever seen.
If anyone is crazy enough to try it, then it’s Mike Fucking Tyson. But is Iron Mike too rusty? Some people are saying that Mike will win, that he looks like he’s in better shape than he did in the late ’90s. Others are saying Fury will dominate effortlessly, though his ears might not make it out unscathed.
Point for Team Tyson: he recently got into great shape and is looking 20 years younger.
And he still throws bombs. My vision goes blurry just from watching this.
Still, the age gap seems insurmountable for a combat sport. Fury is 31 and his career is at its peak.
Regardless of how competitive the actual bout would be, it is guaranteed to be entertainment gold. Same with the press conferences and the pageantry leading up to it. We all know Mike Tyson is a certified crazy person. From biting ears in the ring to his raging interviews outside of it — “I’ll fuck you ’til you love me you f**got!” — no one puts on a bigger show. And the drama would be far from one-sided…
This year’s Fury/Wilder fight proved that Fury is also an animal in the ring — licking Wilder’s blood like an absolute psychopath.
Let’s hope this comes to fruition.
