Mike Tyson has been given a mouth-watering £16.2million offer to return to fighting but this time in a bare knuckle match.
The former undisputed heavyweight king recently posted a video clip on his training session and it drove fans crazy.

Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship President David Feldman said he is willing to give the controversial star more than £16m to fight in the BKFC.
"While we did make a guaranteed offer of $20 million for Mike to fight for BKFC, we’re open to many different options as to how we can work together.
"Obviously, the excitement of seeing Mike’s video showing himself training and desire to participate in exhibitions inspired us to reach out and make the offer," Feldman told Heavy.
Tyson's biggest payday at his prime was £24m and a £16.2m offer to fight with his bare knuckles could be his biggest cheque at his age.
Bare knuckle fighting has two minutes each in a total of five rounds and Tyson would have a shorter workload than four rounds of three minutes inside a ring.
He has been offered $1m to fight New Zealand rugby legend Sonny Bill Williams and a possible rematch against Danny Williams.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Evander Holyfield is following in the footsteps of his one-time rival Mike Tyson as he announces his sensational return into the ring.
The 57-year-old says he will contest in exhibition fights for #Unite4OurFight campaign, which aims to provide students the resources they need for emotional development and education.
Holyfield TMZ Sports: “The Champ is back, I’d like to announce that I will be making a comeback to the ring.
“I will be fighting in exhibition matches for a great cause."
