George Foreman Reacts To 53-Year-Old Mike Tyson Comeback

This week has seen the now quiet boxing world see some interesting news pertaining to one of its most famed fighting sons.

Youngest heavyweight champion of all-time Mike Tyson has mentioned he is looking at doing a charity fight comeback that could include some big retired named boxers like himself.

The unusual news comes at an unusual time where much of the world is still under lock down and no live sporting events appear on the horizon anytime soon.

One fellow heavyweight legend George Foreman said the following of the eyebrow raising news:

While much has been made about the talks of a Tyson comeback surely at this age it would be nothing more than a light exhibition.

Time waits for no man and by the time ‘Iron’ Mike retired it was well and truly time to do so from a professional boxing perspective.

He has many things going on outside of boxing these days but this exhibition comeback has definitely got folks talking.
