Mike Tyson may have unfinished business

Mike Tyson

By Gavin Howie: leaving your career with 2 ko losses against opponents who would not have passed as sparring partners in your peak will surely leave you with some regrets in your mind.

At the age of 54 could it be possible for Mike Tyson to make a come back in a relatively weak heavyweight division?

Today’s heavyweight division has a clear no1 in Tyson Fury, but beneath him is there anyone with the style or skillset that can dethrone him?

This is an article pretty similar in the style of Rocky 6 where an aging Rocky Balboa comes out of retirement to fight, at the time the top dog in the division as he still thought he had a bit to give in a weak division.

This heavyweight division has 3 or 4 challengers to Fury’s throne and I doubt any will have the skillset to take over any time soon.

If you were a retired Mike Tyson watching from the outside, would you not like to eradicate the memory of Danny Williams and Kevin Mcbride from your record with the possibility of becoming the holder of the youngest and oldest heavyweight champion in history?

Out of curiosity who wins against a peak Tyson v Fury, Joshua, or Wilder who are the top 3 in this day and age?

Would it be possible, could it be possible, and would it ever happen?

“I don’t know. He probably is but he never hit me,” said Tyson to Hot boxing when asked if Wilder hits harder than him. “He could be the hardest. I’ve never felt his power, but listen, being the hardest puncher doesn’t mean I want to be the best fighter.

‘You know how many people out there that hit harder than me and hit harder than Foreman and they’re not champions? They hit harder than us, look better than us and make more money than us, but they’re not champions,” said Tyson.

Readers thoughts and opinions as always welcomed and appreciated.
