Mike Tyson has revealed a contract regarding his huge boxing comeback will be signed next week and his opponent is an even bigger name than Evander Holyfield.

Tyson shocked the world earlier this month when he revealed a comeback is in the works and his training footage has got fans very excited.

Longtime rival Holyfield has thrown his name out there for a showdown with Tyson, but 'Iron Mike' has revealed fans will be shocked by his opponent.

Speaking on Little Wayne's Young Money Radio, the 53-year-old said:

"We've got many guys. Listen we've got so many guys that want to do this man.

"We're in calls, we're doing business with guys right now. You're not going to believe the names when the names come out. Some time this week we'll have the contract done.

"And whatever money we get, it's going to somebody else. I'm not going to make any money - probably the company, my wife because she's partners with me, she'll make some probably. But my money is going [to charity]."

Tyson's shredded physique means he looks in better shape than his last fight back in 2005.

'The Baddest Man on the Planet' fell to a shock defeat against Kevin McBride and retired, with the next few years leading him down a dark path.

But the Brookyn native has turned his life around and explained he feels even better than he did in his prime.

"I'm feeling better than I've ever felt in my life. God has been merciful to me man. I'm gonna get on with it, I'm looking good. Yo Wayne, I'm 230 [lbs] right now!

"Man I'm just getting ready you know, I'm just getting ready to help some people out who are less fortunate than me. I'm gonna do this charity event.

"Because I've been homeless and I've been addicted so I know the struggle. Not many people have survived like I did."
