Yes, this really is a thing, not a gimmick, and he is planning on taking a pro fight.  Eddie Hearn, who is a *************, has called it irresponsible and though he's right he's only saying that because he's most likely not going to be involved. He actually does look good for a fitty tree year old man and could probably still give some smokers some trouble for a round or 2....but no. Just no.

Sort of wish he was headed to BKFC, just for my blood lust.

Please no. I know hes making good money with his marijuana buisness and other endeavours. So this is most likely just his passion but please no.

I wouldn't put much stock in that Malaria. Very, very unlikely. In fact I'd say there's more chance he fights an MMA bout than a BK match. BK is far too chicken little for a Tyson return fight. Even MMA is.

He'll take a fight with some bum in pro. Exhibition match. Holyfield is returning too so there's that.

Edit: wrote this before I saw Hippies and your posts, because I'm ********.

They are all rumors, but it would be a perfect scenario for Tyson's return, few would have balls to face that 53-year-old man ,,, nobody and less without gloves

lol pro boxing doesn't really translate to BK man. In a BK fight Tyson likely breaks his hands early, gets cut etc. Pro Boxers aren't really used to the feeling of BK. I think a big part of it is it ****s their guard up because they can't take stuff on the backs of their hands because they're not rockin' those big foam pillows. Let someone who can throw a punch lay one on the back of yours and you'll see what I mean. The whole reason boxing gloves are designed the way they are is to stop cuts and stop hands breaking because those things cause boxing fights to stop. Boxing looks very different without them--it looks pretty **** TBH. You'll never see classy Boxing in BK.

 I knew Paulie was going to lose to Lobov for this reason. It's a different deal.

Tyson would probably do better than Paulie who was really a point fighter but yeah, doubt it works out well for him regardless.

Addendum:

Holyfield vs Tyson 3 is a disgraceful fight that should absolutely not be sanctioned by any commission. It will be mildly entertaining for about  6 minutes after which point everyone will be reminded they are watching two senior citizens in advanced states of decrepitude slug it out in a meaningless exhibition bout until one or the other collapses from exhaustion/ retires on the stool.

That person is very likely going to be Tyson, and that's got far less to do with where Holyfield is (although I don't think Tyson would have ever beaten Holyfield or Lewis frankly) and the fact that Mike is pretty much utterly ******.

I'll watch it because I'm a degenerate but this is worse than Tito vs Chuck 3 in terms of negligent matchmaking.

They stupidly put tyson in at least one of the ufc games I seem to recall.
He would get wrestl****** and choked in less than a minute even in bellator.
He be better off faking it in wwf or whatever they call it this week. "bonus they dont drug test"

lol This has to be ********. There's no way BKFC has 20 million to spend on anything. I'd be surprised if it's cleared that much since its inception. In fact I'd be surprised if any of the no-name fighters receive more payment than a bottle of Jack Daniels and a coupon for the local *****house.
