Mike Tyson returned to boxing for an exhibition bout against Roy Jones Jr. last November at the first Legends Only League event. While Tyson looked great in his performance, the fight ended in a draw.
It appeared he was going to do a fight with Evander Holyfield, but that fight is off the table, as he is set for another rematch this fall. Holyfield will face Kevin McBride at the next Triller boxing event on June 5th.
In a recent interview with TMZ, Tyson stated a fight with Lennox Lewis is the plan. “I’m gonna fight Lennox Lewis,” Tyson said. When he was asked when it would take place, he simply said, “September.”
Their first fight took place in June 2002 at the Pyramid Arena in Memphis where Lewis got the win with an eighth-round knockout to retain the WBC, IBF, IBO, The Ring, and lineal Heavyweight Ttles.
If the fight is actually made, it would mark the first time in over 18 years Lewis will compete in the ring.
A brawl broke out between members of The Inner Circle and The Pinnacle during the match. Tyson knocked out Cash Wheeler at ringside. After it ended, Jericho declared that Tyson is now an ancillary member of The Inner Circle.
