Former heavyweight boxing champion, Mike Tyson, hinted at a comeback after sharing a training video on his Instagram, and bookmakers have priced up who he’s most likely to fight on his return to the ring.
Paddy Power make it 2/1 that he’ll meet nemesis Evander Holyfield for a third time, after losing out to the heavyweight great twice in the late ‘90s.
Tyson also lost to Brits Lennox Lewis and Danny Williams during his glittering career, and they’re at 4/1 and 10/1 respectively to step back into the ring with the former champ – with another Brit, Frank Bruno, who Tyson destroyed twice at his peak, at 25/1.
Tyson Fury’s father, John, who’s already said he’s willing to die in a fight with Tyson, is priced at 10/1, with YouTube stars Logan Paul and KSI at 100/1 and 500/1 respectively.
Spokesman Paddy Power said: “It’s been almost 15 years since Iron Mike last fought professionally, but after watching the video circulating on social media, it’d take a brave man to throw their hat in the ring for an exhibition with the former baddest man on the planet.
“Whatever the outcome, Tyson’s social media posts have created a lot of conversation – here’s hoping that Iron Mike doesn’t chew the ear off his next opponent.”
