Mike Tyson Wants Three Blockbuster Fights In 2021, Names His Hitlist
Mike Tyson wants THREE blockbuster exhibition bouts this year including a fight against current world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
The 54-year-old made his sensational return to boxing last year as he fought fellow legend Roy Jones Jr to a draw.
Tyson vs. Jones Jr garnered a whopping 1.6 million pay-per-views, generating over £50 million.
And 'Iron' Mike plans to continue his comeback, eyeing exhibitions against former foes Evander Holyfield and Lennox Lewis.

He added: "If I do that - even if I can get those two guys [Lewis and Holyfield], I'll say; 'This is a wrap, I'm just gonna live life.'
"And that's just exhibitions. I'm gonna break all my professional true records with exhibitions."
Tyson fought Holyfield on two occasions, losing twice - including the infamous 'Bite Fight' where he was disqualified for biting his opponent's ear.
The former world heavyweight champion also lost to Lewis in one of the biggest fights in boxing history.
