Mike Tyson switches football allegiance again after being pictured in Juventus shirt

Mike Tyson added another football shirt to his already-impressive collection on Thursday morning when he donned the 2023/24 Juventus home shirt.

The 57-year-old is currently in Turin to shoot the action film “Bunny Man” – a new superhero movie that is being produced by Andrea Iervolino and writer Enrico Remmert.

Tyson, who was part of a press conference to announce his involvement, has been cast as himself in the film that will feature a multimillionaire superhero seeking vengeance for his sister's suicide.

On his travels to Turin this week, the former heavyweight champion stopped by at Juventus' headquarters, where he sported the Serie A club's iconic black and white home shirt.

Juve posted a picture of Tyson wearing the shirt on their Instagram page alongside the caption: "Juve training gonna get a whole lot tougher."

This isn't the first time Tyson has sported a football shirt.

Back in 2010, he was paraded around the London Road pitch wearing a Peterborough shirt during their pre-season friendly match against West Ham.

Tyson, who was in town to make a TV show on pigeon racing, even admitted that he’d never even heard of Peterborough while speaking to the crowd.

X account Classic Football Shirts have previously created a thread on Tyson's shirt-wearing antics.

As well as Peterborough, the boxing legend has sported the following shirts: Argentina, England, Brazil, Rangers, Scotland, Manchester United, Wolves and Benfica.

Back in 2020, Tyson was in his element when he took on commentating duties for a Cristiano Ronaldo goal.

Los Blancos were in action against Barcelona in the second leg of the Copa del Rey semi-final in 2013.

And Ronaldo scored Madrid's second goal of the match at the Camp Nou – a moment that 'Iron' Mike commentated on.

"Well, I see this young man running with the ball, he's picking up a lot of speed, but he's unable to score because this guy is putting a great deal of pressure [on him]," Tyson said.

"He skips. No, he feints. He's trying to score; no, he won't score. No, it won't happen. But it will now. Ronaldoooooo scores again!"

The so-called 'Baddest Man on the Planet' went on to label Ronaldo as a "sensational" player.
