Mike Tyson's Last Opponent Sends Him Message Ahead Of Boxing Comeback
The last man to fight Mike Tyson wants to run it back with the returning boxing legend with Kevin McBride saying: "Let's get it on!"
McBride stopped Tyson in the sixth round of their heavyweight contest back in June 2005.
The Irishman sent 'Iron' Mike into retirement with the 54-year-old American set to return to the sport in the form of an exhibition bout against Roy Jones Jr.
And McBride is eager to face Tyson again following his famous victory 15 years ago.
"Let's get it on! Definitely would love to fight him again," 47-year-old told TMZ Sports.

"Nobody can rule out anything in this world because that's life. It would be explosive to fight Mike Tyson again and I'm sure Mike would love to rectify his loss and I would just love to jump in the ring again with him."
He added: "Actually, being in the same ring as him was like a dream one true for me. I got to meet Muhammad Ali the same night because his daughter fought in the undercard so I met two legends in one night."
Tyson will make his highly-anticipated comeback against fellow boxing icon Jones Jr on September 12.

"This is search and destroy and I'm looking forward to recapturing my glory," he told TMZ Sports.
When asked about a knockout, he said: "If the opportunity comes, I'm always looking for it."
