Mike Tyson Offered $1m To Come Out Of Retirement
Iron Mike Tyson has been tempted with an offer of $1 million to come out of retirement.
Brain Amatruda, boxing promoter who made the $1 million offer to Tyson in order for him to come out of retirement and fight ex-rugby players Paul Gallen and Barry Hall or All Blacks legend, Sonny Williams hope to see the former world heavyweight champion accept the offer.
The retired boxer, Tyson, has earlier revealed that he is ready to return back to boxing ring as he has been training with MMA genius Rafael Cordeiro, who is the head coach at Kings MMA in California for some weeks now.
Cordeiro specifically said that it will take another five months for the 53-year-old to be in shape for a bout, nevertheless an offer is ready on the table.
Amatruda, who is a popular boxing promoter has presented a $1 million challenge for the remould Baddest Man on the planet.
According to Daily Mail, Amatruda said: “I will hold it at Melbourne Arena where we can get over 10,000 or even Princes Park where they got 30,000 for jeff Fenech against Azumah Nelson.
“Tyson might be 53-year-old but he is still a big name and any of those blokes Hall, Gallen or Sonny Bill would be glad to get into the ring with him.
“I would make it part of a card with a world title fight. It will be vast. Not just a fight but an event.
“My first step was to contact Max Markson (celerity agent) and ask him to offer the boxing legend $1 million.
“Max brought him to Australia in 2012, they both get along including his wife but the most important thing is that he got him a visa to get into the country back then and that’s the key.”
The 53-year-old was convicted of rape in 1992 and spent three years in prison, a sentence that has seen him face travel restrictions in the past.
Recently, Tyson sent the whole social media into shock when he posted a footage of him having a warmed-up sparring session.
The former heavyweight champion was seen training in a video with Muay Thai trainer Rafael Cordeiro.
His transformation got the entire social media talking as he look to have that ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ body again and could make a come-back after 15 years.
It is yet to be seen if Tyson will receive the $1 million offer and make a come back to professional
