Mike Tyson reveals three names he wants to fight next

Mike Tyson has confirmed that he wants at least two fights this year, reeling off three potential opponents he could square off with.

Tyson returned to the ring when he fought Roy Jones Jr last year, a bout which ended in a draw.

Since then Tyson has remained active in terms of training, regularly speaking about his desire to continue appearing in the ring.

‘Iron Mike’ has now named three potential opponents that he’d like to face.

Speaking on his podcast, Tyson listed former competitors Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis as two names he wants to go toe-to-toe with.

Tyson Fury was the third he revealed he’d like to challenge in an exhibition fight.

“I want Holyfield and I want Lennox Lewis this year.” He revealed.

“I want both of them, I want to get them both this year. I also want to box an exhibition with Tyson Fury.”

He added: “If I do that – even if I can get those two guys [Lewis and Holyfield], I’ll say; ‘This is a wrap, I’m just gonna live life.’

“And that’s just exhibitions. I’m gonna break all my professional true records with exhibitions.”

Tyson lost twice to Holyfield, one which ended in the infamous ear-biting incident. He also lost to Lewis in 2002.

The former undisputed heavyweight champion has been vocal in his admiration of Tyson Fury, touting him for victory in the much-anticipated showdown with Anthony Joshua.
