Baddest man of the planet could return to the ring for a big money fight in Saudi Arabia



Boxing icon Mike Tyson is rumored to be making a return to the ring for a big-money boxing fight in Saudi Arabia, Ash Rose reports for DAZN.


According to MMA Pack on Instagram, Tyson is set to do battle with MMA fighter Fedor Emelianenko after they revealed there had been negotiations between the two parties.


“Mike Tyson vs. Fedor Emelianenko boxing match negotiations are underway and targeted for later this year in Saudi Arabia,” the account claimed after the Russian fighter had previously expressed a desire to face Tyson following the end of his MMA career.


57-year-old Tyson hasn’t stepped into a boxing ring since his exhibition fight with Roy Jones Jr in November 2020, but for the right amount of money would consider a return to the squared circle. In mixing it up with Emelianeko, he would be taking on a man ten years his junior, who last fought inside the Octagon in February last year and has an overall MMA record of 41-7-1.


A return fight for the former World Heavyweight champion would be a huge attraction match for Saudi Arabia, and there had been some talk of it being part of the undercard for Anthony Joshua’s clash with Francis Ngannou in March. However, despite the deadline having now passed, it’s still a showdown that is reportedly happening later this year.
