MIKE TYSON has claimed that he has convinced Lennox Lewis to face him in an exhibition fight – despite the pair having a combined age of 111.

The Baddest Man on the Planet is now 55-years-old and earns a whopping £500k-a-month from his cannabis empire.

But the lure of boxing, and the huge sums of cash on offer, led to the heavyweight legend making a stunning return to the ring in November 2020 over 15 years after retiring.

Ex-world champion Tyson drew in an eight-round exhibition with fellow American great Roy Jones Jr, 53, on a Triller pay-per-view which sold a reported 1.6million packages.

Now he says that fans will get to see him in action again – only this time it will be against the British icon.

The two men originally came face-to-face 20 years ago and had a heated and infamous build-up to their blockbuster fight.

But it was Lewis who stood tall after a stunning eighth-round knockout win over the American superstar.

Tyson told TMZ as he left a restaurant in Los Angeles on Tuesday: “I’m gonna fight Lennox Lewis.”

The only other details that he provided was stating that the bout will take place in “September” this year.

Fellow former world title holder Lewis, 55, retired from boxing in 2004.

He did reveal back in 2019 that he would consider taking on Tyson in an exhibition clash – but only for a $100 million purse.

Lewis has yet to publicly respond to Iron Mike’s comments.

Tyson had previously revealed that he wants to go one-on-one with Evander Holyfield, the man whose ear he infamously bit a chunk out of, one last time before he officially wraps up his legendary career.

He said: “I want Holyfield and I want Lennox Lewis this year.

“I want both of them, I want to get them both this year. I also want to box an exhibition with Tyson Fury.

“If I do that — even if I can get those two guys [Lewis and Holyfield], I’ll say, ‘This is a wrap, I’m just gonna live life’.”
