And he revealed that he would support the returning boxing icon to compete for the WBC heavyweight belt.
"I am very excited, very happy. He has brought great positive attention to the sport. Why? Because Mike Tyson is a hero and an icon," Sulaiman told Boxing Social.
"He fell in very difficult times, as many has done, and now it's boxing that is bringing him back."

He added: "Of course, it will be with the absolute care of the medicals, of the testing, the complete protocol to make sure whoever is in the ring is in top shape and has no additional risk.
"I am supporting it 100 per cent and if someone wants to say he wants to fight for the title, I will say he will and the WBC will be there!"
Tyson, aged 20 at the time, first captured the famous green and gold strap when he destroyed Trevor Berbick in November 1986.
Fury, meanwhile, is slated to face Deontay Wilder for a third time after stopping 'The Bronze Bomber' in February to become a two-time world heavyweight champion.
The trilogy bout was scheduled for July until the coronavirus crisis delayed the heavyweight contest.
The third meeting is tentatively penciled in for the "fourth quarter" of 2020.
