Wanderlei Silva: Unarmed fight with Mike Tyson could make more numbers than Mayweather fight


Since Mike Tyson decided to get back in shape and post spooky video evidence that he still has spooky power, several current and past hitters have thrown their names in the hat to welcome “Iron Mike” to the battlefield .

Indeed, fighters such as Tito Ortiz, Ken Shamrock and even Tyson Fury have expressed interest in a possible fight against one of the scariest fighters in the history of combat sports. But the one man who seems to have an advantage over them all is former PRIDE FC and UFC headhunter Wanderlei Silva. According to “The Ax Murderer”, Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC) contacted him about the possibility of facing Tyson.

For Silva, now is the time to fight like this, as live sporting events are rare due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This fight has everything for sale, especially now that everyone is stuck at home (due to the coronavirus pandemic),” Silva told MMA Fighting. “It would be a great time to book a fight like this.”

“David (Feldman) came to me once and said,” Look, you are the first fighter that came to mind when I created this promotion, “said Silva. “They’ve offered me a few names in the past, but I said no – those names and the money weren’t worth the risk. To do something so crazy and fight again without gloves, it has to be something really beneficial in terms of name recognition and price. “
