Mike Tyson Could "Challenge Anthony Joshua Or Tyson Fury" After Remarkable Training Progress
'Iron Mike' is getting ready to take on Roy Jones Jr on November 28 in what will be his first fight in over a decade.
Since announcing the fight, Tyson has trained relentlessly as he aims to prove he still has what it takes in the squared circle.
Rafael Cordeiro, the man who has been preparing Tyson for his comeback, told TMZ Sport: "I believe Mike can do it. If he put his mind to it, if he wanna fight for the belt one day, why not? Who says it's impossible to do?
"He's fighting every single day in the gym and I believe the best still to come.
"Why not? If one day he wants to prove, he put his techniques to the test, why not [fight for] for the belt?
"He is improving every day. He does not look like a 54-year-old fighter."
Joshua is current WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight champion while Fury is WBC heavyweight champion.

"He's still Mike Tyson, he's still one of the strongest, most explosive people who ever touched a boxing ring. If anything, I made a mistake going in with him. He's the bigger guy, he's the explosive guy.
"He's going to have all the first-round fireworks, not me. I do have first-round fireworks, but he's known for more first-round fireworks than anybody to ever touch boxing, other than maybe George Foreman.
