- Tyson: Between Legend and Business: Rumors of His Return to the Ring
Mike Tyson, 53 years old and 15 retired, the world's youngest heavyweight champion, has announced that the contract that will mean his return to the ring will be signed "in a week" and that his bag will be "for the homeless and addicts".
"I am in the best shape of my life. God has been merciful to me. I weigh 104 kilos and I feel very good. I am preparing to help those who have been less fortunate than me and I will do it in a fight for charitable purposes", Tyson said in an interview with rapper Lil Wayne on his Young Money radio show.
The former world champion explained the reasons for his return. "I will earn that money and help the homeless and addicts. I have been through that and I know how difficult it is. There are not as many people who can survive as I am."
Since the first rumors about his return emerged, much has been speculated about his possible rival, although the New York boxer has made it clear that he would not be "necessarily in front of Evander Holyfield, 57, who defeated him twice.
"There are many options. Many want to participate in this fight and we are making the necessary arrangements. The contract must be signed within a week. And whatever my bag, I will not benefit from it. I will not earn money from this fight. Maybe because she is part of the organization. But my money will be donated to the causes that are dear to me, "concluded Mike Tyson.
