Mike Tyson is ready to step out of retirement!

Reported on TMZ, the boxing champ will take on Roy Jones Jr. on September 12 for an 8-round event called Frontline Battle, set to go down in California. Fans can chime in via Pay-per-view or on the social media platform, Triller. There will also be a 10-part documentary about Iron Mike and Roy Jones Jr. Two episodes will drop every week until fight night. 

Mike Tyson is also gearing up to square off with a great white shark during Discovery’s highly anticipated shark week. This is set to happen on August 9. 

Over the years, Mike expressed that he felt “empty” since retirement and was itching to get back. He said he felt incomplete not being in the boxing spotlight anymore, so hopefully, these events will lift his spirits.

Mike Tyson’s last fight was in 2005 and Roy recently fought in 2018.
