Mike Tyson is certainly one of the most legendary boxers in the history of professional boxing. Tyson is known for his insane power and intimidating stature that has sown fear in the hearts of his opponents. It seems Mike Tyson’s fight with a former adversary is still on.
Mike Tyson squared off against Roy Jones Jr. in an eight-round exhibition bout at the Staples Center in Los Angeles back on November 28, 2020. The fight ended in an unexpected split draw, but it certainly surpassed all expectations.
Many fans also believed a second match between ‘Lion’ Lennox Lewis and Mike Tyson had been in the works. They previously fought back in 2002, which saw Lewis knocking out Tyson.
While speaking to Eli Seckbach of ES News, Lennox Lewis was asked about his rematch with Mike Tyson taking place in February. Lewis made it clear that the fight will be happening as he simply said, ”Yeah.”
Mike Tyson had previously stated that he would square off against Logan Paul for $100 million. From the looks of it, Mike Tyson and Logan Paul’s match is unlikely to happen now. It remains to be seen whether Tyson does end up squaring off against Lennox Lewis or not as fans would love to see it happen.
