Mike Tyson versus Tyson Fury could happen in a charity boxing match and will be backed by promoter Bob Arum.
The Baddest Man on the Planet returned to training and his menacing speed and punching power got lots of positive reactions from fans around the world.
According to Sun Sport, the former undisputed heavyweight king will only step into the ring with a bonafide opponent because he does not want to disrespect the sport he loves.

Tyson recently analyzed how he would have used his aggression and mobility to break down the current WBC champion Fury in a fight.
And Fury's promoter Bob Arum has confirmed that he is willing to make the fight happen in form of an exhibition.
Such exhibition bouts would have headgears and oversized gloves worn with all proceeds going to charity.
Arum told Deadspin: “I would entertain the idea of Tyson Fury fighting an exhibition against Tyson if the money was going to a legitimate charity.
“I wouldn’t finance it. I would put sweat equity into it. I think it would be good for Tyson (Fury).’
The last time Tyson fought in the ring was in 2005 but the 53-year-old has been tempted with mouth-watering offers to step back into the squared circle.
Evander Holyfield who also returned to the gym recently spoke about having a third fight with his old rival if he agrees.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Mike Tyson's sensational return to the ring would end within 30 seconds, according to BBC sports journalist Steve Bunce.
The Baddest man of the Planet is preparing for an exhibition fight in the coming months and posted video clips of his training sessions which went viral.
The 53-year-old has frightening speed and hit the pads hard like he was knocking down opponents in his 20's.
But Bunce thinks otherwise and believes if the former heavyweight would return to the ring he should fight someone in the same category not boxer in their 20's and 30's.
