Mike Tyson offered world title shot by former promoter Don King and WBA champ Trevor Bryan despite huge 23-YEAR age gap

Tyson, who last challenged for a belt in 2002, made his return to the ring in November, 15 years after he retired.

Following his exhibition draw with Roy Jones Jr, 52, the heavyweight legend is looking for his next fight.

He is currently in talks for a rematch 19 years in the making with Lennox Lewis, 55, and claimed the fight was set for September.

But Bryan, 31, instead laid out a sensational proposal and called out Tyson, 54, to defend his secondary world title against the icon, who is 23-years his senior.

Via World Boxing News, he said: “Bring on Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury. I’ll take their belts and become the undisputed heavyweight champion.

“I’ll even give Iron Mike Tyson the opportunity to come back and fight me for my title. I’m more than ready, so let’s get it on. We are ready to go.

“I’ll take on Mike Tyson for a tune-up, and then I’ll fight either Joshua or Fury the same night.”

Bryan won the belt against in January, beating ex-WBC champion Bermane Stiverne, but is yet to defend it.

King currently promotes the American and recently met up with old friend Tyson.

He worked with Iron Mike throughout his career, but the pair had a turbulent relationship.

Tyson once claimed King fleeced him for £200million and took him to court.

They have since made up and rekindled and were recently pictured in a restaurant in Florida together.
