Watch Mike Tyson arrive to watch Canelo Alvarez demolish Avni Yildirim in leather jacket and white shorts

BOXING legend Mike Tyson arrived in an interesting combo to watch Canelo Alvarez demolish Avni Yildirim in three one-sided rounds.

Flanked by a host of security guards, the 54-year-old opted to wear a black leather jacket with white shorts and white pumps.

Mike Tyson brought the leather jacket to town for the big fight

And of course the former heavyweight champion of the world had his coronavirus mask on too.

Iron Mike arrived at the Hard Rock Stadium Arena and was greeted by co-promoter of the event, Matchroom’s Eddie Hearn.

He then took his seat ringside to watch Mexican champ Canelo make light work of Yildirim.

Tyson has made a sensational return to the sport that saw him feared for years.

In December he drew with fellow Hall of Famer Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition fight – and promised he will do more.

And in the Miami ring he watched on as Canelo showed brutality he was famous for to shatter Yildirim’s dreams of springing a huge shock.

The Turkish challenger was a 14/1 shots with many bookies – and those odds didn’t lie as he was blitzed.

Yildirim was asked by his corner if he was ok as he sat on his stool at the end of the third – he answered ‘yes’ but all that changed in a few seconds as his corner waved it off.


Canel Alvarez reigned supreme with an easy victory

Canelo has spoken of how he wants four fights this year – and No2 is set to be against Brit Saunders in May.

After the easy win in Miami, Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed Canelo, 30, will fight the WBO super middleweight and unbeaten champ.

The one-sided battering of Yildirim came just over two months since Canelo easily outpointed Liverpool’s Callum Smith to win the WBA super and WBC super-middleweight belts.
