Mike Tyson Names His Top Five Current Boxers

Mike Tyson Names His Top Five Current Boxers

He may boast the WBF, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight world titles, but Anthony Joshua still hasn't done enough in Mike Tyson's eyes.

In fact, 31-year-old Joshua doesn't even make it into Iron Mike's top five favourite boxers who are currently plying their trade.

Speaking to NBA icon Dennis Rodamn on his popular podcast Hotboxin', the Baddest Man on the Planet rattled off some of his favourite fighters - but there was no mention of British fan favourite AJ.

"I respect Tyson Fury, I respect Deontay Wilder, I respect all of those guys," he said.

"Andy Ruiz also, this guy named [Vasyl] Lomachenko - he's a f***ing animal, man. He's a master, it's like he's dancing.

"There's also Gervonta Davis, there's quite a few guys that are good fighters."

"The situation is whether they will fight each other. Promoters are not allowing them to fight each other. I'd love to see them fight each other but the promoters don't want to do it.

'It [boxing] is very political now. That's why I think in the next couple months or so you're going to find that there are some new players in the game and it's going to get really serious."

54-year-old Tyson made his long-awaited return to the ring last month when he took on former world champ Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition bout at the Staples Center.

Iron Mike showed glimpses of his former self as he bobbed and weaved to a draw against Jones Jr - not that either seemed bothered by the result though.

The event was a huge success and Tyson even admitted he's interested in competing again sometime soon.
