Warren saying it isn’t agreed yet. AJ needed to release something after the backlash he was getting.

I’d want AJ to win. Prefer him as a boxer and think he’s got more in the tank for future fights as don’t think it’s long before Fury walks away. What motivates him after the AJ fight?

But I think Fury will just outbox him all night.

I was team AJ before. And in fact up to a couple of years ago I couldn't stand Fury. Then I listened to the Joe Rogan podcast episode with Fury and that changed my mind on him completely.

And with AJ it wasn't his loss that changed my mind it was actually the rematch. He was pathetic. He fought scared. He lost all of my respect for that performance to be honest. And to me he showed that he's one of the best fighters in a era of not very good heavyweights. Fury should destroy him.

Just seen Mike Tyson training vid on his insta account. Still fast, still powerful, was the best ever for me, probably would still cause a few problems for some!

He's a year or two older than me ffs.

There s good interview with him and sugar ray Leonard on hot boxin - you tube

Surely Tyson and Holyfield aren't going to be given boxing licenses to actually fight at their age the medical risks must be huge and given both have already had long careers going back for more shots to the head can't be a good idea given what we know now about concussion risk.

Not doubting the bloke is in good shape but these videos are misleading that's 1 minute 30 of careful edited content lets see how many 3 minute rounds he can last and sustain any sort of power for.

Tyson obviously has a shady past but it seems like he's got his life back on track recently and turned it around but if he's coming back to boxing that means he's probably skint. I just don't understand why anyone would want to pay and watch two grandads who's best years were 20 plus years ago try and get back in the ring.

I mean I bet Robbo can still do keep ups no bother and put a ball anywhere he wants to that stuff doesn't leave your system doesn't mean he could play any sort of football match.

Yeah put Tyson in the ring with a half decent fighter then I don’t think he stands a chance. He may be able to hold his own for a bit because he is that sort of tenacious fighter but ultimately his age will show.

Looks in proper good shape though!

Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face - Tyson

I'm not saying he's going to be able fight Fury here, amazing how these threads get misdirected. I'm saying he looks amazing and fast for a 53 year old.

But I loved his fights, was really excited when he had a fight on, just the best ever.

Average 3.5 rounds over 34 professional fights.

Oh god id love to see Tyson come back. Even if it's just for a fight or two it would be a huge draw.

He seems well up for a fight with someone. But it'll be with heavier more padded gloves and exhibition style.
