Mike Tyson 'Accepts' Fight Offer And Vows Anyone Is Welcome To Challenge Me

Mike Tyson says anyone is "welcome to come in and challenge me" in response to former UFC superstar Tito Ortiz's call out.

Tyson, 53, is set for a sensational return to the ring after showing off his incredible physique and terrifying power in a series of training videos on social media.

A number of opponents have called for a showdown with Tyson, whose vowed to fight anyone that's willing to contribute to charity.

And when asked about the recent fight challenge from the MMA legend, Tyson said: "I don't really know, but anyone that's willing to contribute to this charity, they're welcome to come in and challenge me.

"I would be open for anyone," he added.

On Instagram, Ortiz, 45, took to social media to call out the returning boxing icon: "Legend Vs Legend on PPV! When are we doing it?"

Another returning boxing legend in the form of Evander Holyfield also wants to face Tyson.

And 'Iron' Mike said it would be "awesome" to meet 'The Real Deal' in a trilogy bout.

"That would be awesome for charity," Tyson told TMZ. "Can you imagine me and him going in the ring together?"

There's no shortage of opponents for Tyson, but former UFC title challenger Chael Sonnen has mocked Ortiz's offer.

"Oh, the gift of Tito Ortiz just keeps on giving. So, there is something that the kids call Instagram. Now Instagram is largely a photo-based social media outlet. You can include text, but if you don't include a photo or a video you are basically misusing Instagram and you should just take that over to Twitter. Ok fine," Sonnen explained.

"Now Tito puts out a picture, and it is a side by side with Mike Tyson and Tito on the other side. Tito is shirtless, flexing his abs, captions: 'Legend vs Legend let's do this on pay-per-view' exclamation point.

"Ok let's start at the beginning. Anybody of any age, but particularly a grown ass 44-year-old man that goes on to Instagram shirtless while flexing his abs is a little bit of a dork. For one. Start with that."
