He retired in 2005 but made a shock comeback in 2020 for an exhibition bout with legend Roy Jones Jr, 53.

The pair of American legends drew over eight rounds and Tyson discussed a follow up fight.

But negotiations soon faded out and the reformed Baddest Man on The Planet lost interest in fighting once more.

That was until he was called out by YouTube star-turned prizefighter Jake Paul, 25, who is 30 years his senior.
