Eddie Hearn's Response When Asked If He'd Promote Mike Tyson's Comeback

'Iron' Mike made a big splash on social media when he uploaded a video of himself training ahead of a sensational return to the ring.

He's eyeing an exhibition bout at the age of 53 and contacted Hearn about getting involved.

But the Matchroom boss, who's no stranger to putting on extravagant boxing shows, admits he's not interested in promoting the returning boxing icon's comeback.

"Tyson looked fantastic on the pads but he's 53. Look at his last fight against Kevin McBride. He won't be able to compete at [a high level]," Hearn said to Sky Sports.

"But Mike, you're 53, please don't do it, please."
