Mike Tyson will be back to the ring anytime in September when he faces another fan favorite and a former heavyweight champion Roy Jones Jr. It is no longer new that they are going to fight in September 2020 in California. Mike Tyson believed that he is going to do better in the fight since he is back to shape. Mike Tyson who is now 54 has not fought any other fight after losing to Keven McBride in the year 2005. After that loss, he has always maintained that he is going to return to the ring. For months, he has been preparing for this encounter and that is why he tried to put himself in a good shape. Tyson himself even boasted about his fitness.
Recently he released a new movie or video where he showed himself training vigorously to come to good shape. He said that he is working on himself and the aim is to improve on his speed, footwork as well as his punching power, and so on.
Tyson was able to discover some of the reasons that made it difficult for him to reach what he used to be in the past. He said he was actively involved in cocaine and that he was a drunkard. He said that he has since given up on those attitudes. He said that he will be grateful that he is returning to shape. He also recounted successes he made since he left the ring in 2005. Tyson maintained that he has married. He said that those things have positively changed him and that on the match day, he is going to do well in the ring again. Tyson spoke to the TMZ sports about this encounter. Now that he is back to shape, he is willing to take on anybody that comes to his way. He said that his body has started to change and that he started the workout.
Throwing more light on why he decided to get back to the ring after more than fifteen years of being away, Tyson revealed that he was motivated by the desire to take on the then MMA start Bob Sapp. When the former star could not make it, he has to settle on Jones Jr.
He said that it was not for the money that comes with it that motivates him to get to the ring again. According to him money coming from it would be channeled to charity.
