Boxing Legend, Mike Tyson Offered $1m To Fight In Australia, After Years Of Retirement

Boxing Legend, Mike Tyson Offered $1m To Fight In Australia, After Years Of Retirement
Mike Tyson At Age 53
Boxing promoter Brian Amatruda is reportedly ready to offer as much as $1million to former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson to come out of retirement and fight either ex-rugby league players Barry Hall and Paul Gallen or All Blacks legend Sonny Williams.

The 53-year-old retired boxer has recently disclosed that he is ready to return into the ring as he has been training with MMA mastermind Rafael Cordeiro for a couple of weeks now.


Cordeiro who is the head coach at Kings MMA in California has stated that it will take another five months for Tyson to be in shape for a bout, however an offer is already on the cards.

Popular boxing promoter Amatruda has provided a $1million challenge for the reformed 'Baddest Man on The Planet.

"I'd hold it at Melbourne Arena where we'd get over 10,000 or even Princes Park where they got 30,000 for Jeff Fenech versus Azumah Nelson," Amatruda was quoted by Daily Mail.

"He might be 53 years old but he's still a huge name and any of those blokes Hall, Gallen or Sonny Bill would jump at the chance to get into the ring with him.

"I'd make it part of a card with a world title fight. It would be enormous. Not just a fight, it would be an event.

"The first thing I did was contact (celebrity agent) Max Markson and ask him to offer Tyson $1million.

"Max brought him to Australia in 2012. He gets on well with him and his wife but the main thing is that he got him a visa to get into the country back then and that's the key."

Tyson spent three years in prison after being convicted of r*pe in 1992, a sentence that has seen him face travel restrictions in the past.
