MIKE TYSON will only make a sensational comeback to fight “another bona fide boxer”.
Fraudulent offers and announcements have been posted on the Internet since the 53-year-old coach returned.
But one possibility is a tantalizing third game between Iron Mike and old enemy Evander ‘Real Deal’ Holyfield.
An Australian matchmaker offered Tyson a £ 500,000 charity fight against New Zealand rugby star Sonny Bill Williams.
Then, an American barefoot boxing promoter promised Baddest Man on the Planet £ 16 million in a return agreement.
And even Tyson Fury’s father and former heavyweight John Fury, 55, said he was ready to DIE in the ring trying to beat Tyson, known as one of the most poisonous punchers in the game. history.
Friday, a fake Twitter profile deceived a number of high-profile personalities into believing that Tyson had accepted a hand-to-hand fight with another veteran and former heavyweight world champion
The farce was quickly discovered, leaving fans teased by Tyson’s short viral clip breaking the pads with his new deflated trainer.
But a source close to one of the movements at play to promote Tyson’s return told SunSport that all hope is not lost.
The insider said, “Mike has ruled out the prospect of an exhibition fight in Australia because he doesn’t want to fight a crossover athlete.
“If Mike returns to boxing, it will only be to fight another bona fide boxer.
“Mike believes everything else would be an insult to the sport.”
In an article on social media on Saturday, Tyson revealed his intention to fight, saying that “the gods of war have woken me up.”
He wrote, “I feel unstoppable now. The gods of war woke me up. They have ignited my ego and want me to start the war again.
