Mike Tyson is set to get back in the ring for another boxing match. The 54-year-old former Champion already took on Roy Jones Jr, but he’s not done yet.

While speaking to TMZ, “Iron Mike” confirmed his next fight for September. He will be fighting Lennox Lewis. He didn’t provide any further details about the event location or who will stream the fight.

It is presumed that this boxing match will be an exhibition fight, meaning it won’t count toward anyone’s record. Tyson and Lewis have a history with each other. Lewis knocked Tyson out in 2002 in the 8th round of their fight.

Lennox Lewis turns 56 on September 2nd, but he’s still game to fight Tyson. This will also be a huge payday for both men.

It was previously thought that Evander Holyfield would fight Mike Tyson next. They couldn’t come to an agreement with money. Now Tyson vs Lewis is apparently happening in September. Stay tuned for more information.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
