Mike Tyson reveals he ‘wants to go to war again and feels unstoppable’ as legend prepares for shock boxing return – The Sun

MIKE TYSON revealed he wants "to go to war again" and feels "unstoppable" as he prepares to make a sensational comeback.

The 53-year-old announced plans to make a return to the ring to compete in exhibition bouts to raise money for charity.

And the reformed Baddest Man on The Planet has since been using time in lockdown to dramatically transform his body, training for the last three weeks with with MMA coach Rafael Cordeiro.

Cordeiro believes Tyson – who retired in 2005 – only needs another five months before he is ready to make a genuine pay-per-view comeback, as the heavyweight reveals he feels in his prime again.

He said on Facebook: "That's all I've been doing, getting into shape.

"I feel unstoppable now. I feel the same again. The gods of war ignited my ego and want me to go to war again.

"Imagine if I went out there and fought and I could help all these people we talked about."

Tyson has had offers to rematch Brit Danny Williams, fight rugby legend Sonny Bill Williams and was even called out by Tyson Fury's dad John – who said he would be willing to "die" in the ring.

But British promoter Frank Warren as well as Ricky Hatton have urged the former two-time champ to stay in retirement and avoid any possible embarrassment.

It comes after Tyson was joined in coming out of retirement by former foe Evander Holyfield, 57, who twice beat the American, losing a chunk of his ear in their 1997 rematch.

Despite big-money offers and spoof announcements flying around the internet since Iron Mike returned to training, a source close to one of the moves in play to promote a Tyson comeback, said his return will be to fight a recognised boxer.

A source told SunSport : “Mike has ruled out the prospect of the exhibition bout in Australia because he does not want to fight a cross-over athlete.

“If Mike returns to boxing, it will only be to fight another bona fide boxer.

“Mike believes anything else would be an insult to the sport.”
