Mike Tyson’s return can add value to boxing and has backed the heavyweight legend’s plan to get in the ring again, Anthony Joshua said.
The 54-year-old Mike Tyson, will meet fellow icon Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition bout in Los Angeles by September 12, while posting video of his preparation.
“You see a clip on social media and you think: ‘He’s back in action, he’s fighting fit’. Joshua said at a Sky VIP event
Tyson hitting pads with ferocious behavior is second nature to him. But to someone watching from home? It’s like he’s going to rule the heavyweight division.
Tyson has been fighting since he was 13, while Jones dad pushed him to be great. So its a passion they both love.
If Mike Tyson wants to come back and fight someone from his era, for the love of the sport? Crack on. And i hope it adds value to the sport we all love. They haven’t got to compete with the young lions of the division. We’re bigger, stronger, science has improved so we have more technology.
