Mike Tyson has denied reports he has been offered $1 million to return to the ring against two-time Rugby union World Cup winner Sonny Bill Williams.

The Daily Mail reported that leading Australian promoter Brian Amatruda came through with the offer after seeing a 53-year-old Tyson look incredibly sharp in a recent session on the pads.

There seemed to be legs in the story given Amatruda had been in touch with celebrity agent Max Markson, who Tyson has worked with down under before.

Iron Mike has also gone on record to reveal he has been training for "three or four-round exhibitions for some charities".

But in a tweet since deleted, the former world heavyweight champion branded this particular story "totally false".

Tyson may well have some more denying to do because there have also been claims that he has been offered an eye-watering $20 million to make his in-ring return for bare-knuckle boxing promotion Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.

Feldman told Heavy.com: "While we did make a guaranteed offer of $20 million for Mike [Tyson] to fight for BKFC, we're open to many different options as to how we can work together.

"Obviously, the excitement of seeing Mike's video showing himself training and desire to participate in exhibitions inspired us to reach out and make the offer."

That's not all though. Tyson has also been subject of a call-out from Tyson Fury's dad John, who has seemingly had enough of him talking about his world champion son.

"I'm looking at fighting Mike Tyson, how's that?" the 55-year old shouted to Manchester Fight Club, in a x-rated message.

"I don't value my life to 50 pence but let me tell you something, Mike Tyson is worth doing charity with.

"He's a proper king and a champion. He's a proper man, tried and tested.

"I'll fight Mike Tyson, I know he mentions my boy's name every five minutes so here I am. John Fury is hiding from no man, not even the king of all men.

"Mike Tyson, I will fight Mike Tyson. Hear that then, I will not be denied, I will die in a fight. I am as game as an American Yankee c**k and I will die before I give in."

If Tyson is indeed serious about returning, the 'Baddest Man on the Planet' will continue to have offers flooding in.
