According to EURO WEEKLY NEWS, Mike Tyson is getting back in to the ring. The former heavyweight champ who turned 42 in June, is reported to be a part of an “international competition” that will be held next month in Benidorm, Spain.
“Iron Mike” who was last seen in the ring sparring for the public at the Aladdin (now known as Planet Hollywood) in Las Vegas back in 2006, is joined on the August 12 card by Spaniards, Kiko Martínez and Roberto Santos and British fighter, John Simpson. No word on who Mike will be fighting, if he’s actually fighting anyone at all.
An earlier report from BENIDORM SPOTLIGHT, a website targeted at tourists of the island, were vague about Tyson’s role in the event which is being held in a bull fighting ring, “the star attraction has got to be the presence of the former heavyweight champion of the world ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson.”
Hopefully, Mike picked up some Spanish during is time in “Bolivian.”
