Tyson’s camp reaches out to Joshua’s manager to promote his comeback fight

first_imgEddie Hearn has claimed Mike Tyson’s camp have “reached out” to him to promote the 53-year-old’s sensational comeback. After Hearn promoted Paul’s loss to KSI, three months later his brother Jake also made his pro debut beating internet rival AnEsonGib. The promoter admitted the interest and numbers generated from the YouTubers boxing was great enough for him to promote KSI fighting Jake, but insisted he would not stage regular events involving the social media stars. But with Tyson – who retired in 2005 with a record of 50-6-2 – claiming to be feeling in his prime, Hearn questions whether bringing the ageing heavyweight back to the ring damages the sport’s integrity. It comes as 57-year-old Evander Holyfield, who twice beat Tyson, also announced plans to make a comeback and revealed he would face Iron Mike for a third time but only if it was for charity. Hearn added: “There’s a fine line, and I’ve crossed it a couple of times, sort of with the integrity of the sport versus entertainment and delivering numbers. read also:Old enemies: Holyfield set to stage ‘trilogy’ fight with Tyson “Our job is to deliver numbers for our broadcasters. But we have to try and keep it as close to the right mark as we possibly can. “I don’t know, stranger things have happened, we’ll see.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Promoted Content5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks8 Fascinating Facts About CoffeeWho Earns More Than Ronaldo?11 Most Immersive Game To Play On Your Table TopThailand’s 10 Most Iconic LandmarksThe Most Exciting Cities In The World To VisitInsane 3D Spraying Skills Turn In Incredible Street ArtCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable Way14 Hilarious Comics Made By Women You Need To Follow Right Now6 Interesting Ways To Make Money With A DroneTime Playing Video Games Can Have A Detrimental Effect On You Tyson has been in the gym for the last month under MMA coach Rafael Cordeiro after announcing shock plans to fight in exhibition bouts for charity. He has received numerous big-money proposals – including from rugby star Sonny Bill Williams and even Tyson Fury’s dad John – but will only entertain more serious offers. As SunSport revealed, Tyson is only willing to step back into the ring for the first time in 15 years if it is against a “bona fide” opponent as he does not want to disrespect the sport he loves. And Anthony Joshua’s promoter Hearn – who staged the rematch between YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul last November – has been in talks with the heavyweight legend’s team about working on his remarkable comeback. He told British Boxing TV: “They reached out to me. I had a call, a message, someone reached out to me and said ‘I wanna talk about Mike’. “I would like to see it. But I kind of feel like, and I know people will say ‘Well, you did the YouTube fight with KSI’ but is it a bit irresponsible to let a 53-year-old legend get back in the ring? “I don’t know. He looks pretty dangerous, but I think it’s just the fascination of could he actually go in at 53 and do some damage in the division? Maybe, maybe not.”last_img read more
