Hollywood Star Michael Jai White Agrees To Fight Mike Tyson 'For Free' And Says Bout 'Can Happen Next Week'

Hollywood Star Michael Jai White Agrees To Fight Mike Tyson 'For Free' And Says Bout 'Can Happen Next Week'

The man who played Mike Tyson in a film wants to fight him inside the ring.

Hollywood star and fellow New York native Michael Jai White played 'Iron' Mike in the 1995 HBO biopic 'Tyson' and fast forward to 2021 and the 53-year-old is more than willing to mix it up with the two-time world heavyweight champion.

White, who is known for starring Mortal Kombat: Legacy and The Dark Knight, is prolific in eight different styles of martial arts and took up jujutsu aged just seven.

But he's always wanted to try his hand at boxing and reckons there's no better start than facing the 'Baddest Man on the Planet', who made his return to the ring after 15 years away with an impressive display in his exhibition bout with Roy Jones Jr.

"Of course," White told VladTV when asked if he'd fight Tyson.

"To box Mike Tyson, I would love that. Are you kidding me? Why would I not do something like that. Of course, I think I would win.

"If [Tyson] he whooped my a**, I would [just] laugh at the whole scenario."

That arrangement seems to work for White as he claims he does not want to be paid for a potential bout with the boxing legend.

"Of course, I'll do it for free," he added.

"That's my point man. It's not about somebody else's entertainment.

"That's why I don't post this stuff [sparring sessions] with Jon Jones or me and a lot of fighters. I don't post that stuff. This is something that can happen next week."

Having got himself in superb physical condition, Tyson continues to train after well and truly getting the boxing bug back.
