- Mike Tyson has declared that he would love to fight Anthony Joshua in the future

Mike Tyson has revealed that he would love to step into the ring with the current WBA, WBO and IBF champion, Anthony Joshua.
The Baddest Man of the Planet will take on Roy Jones Jr, in his comeback fight in November in a highly anticipated eight-round charity exhibition event.
The 54-year-old has insisted that he would love to take on younger heavyweights in future in exhibition bouts.
Speaking to TMZ Sports, Tyson said:
"Listen, I'm very interested,. If doing that means that we can have bigger charity exponents, well be it. I'm down to do that too."
The Iron Mike was asked if he would love to challenge Nigerian-born British fighter AJ, he said:
"I would love to do that. That would be mind-blowing."
However, AJ himself made it clear he had no desire to fight one of his idols in the sport. Joshua told The Sun earlier in the year:
"With all due respect I wouldn't [face Tyson].
"Even if I fought Iron Mike and beat him, I think I'd be the only one cheering. People would boo. He is a legend. He is the greatest boxer of the modern era."
However, Mike has insisted that his fight with AJ is going to be strictly a charity event. Tyson told TMZ:
"Listen, it's entertainment. It's just for charity, it's for a good cause, but we're giving our best."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Mike Tyson is now training with WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle and former UFC bantamweight champion Henry Cejudo ahead of his heavyweight clash with Roy Jones Jr.
The boxing bout is slated for November 28, Tyson at age 54 still believes he has what it takes to deliver his heavy punches that wrecked opponents.
Tyson, Angle and Cejudo were spotted together at the weekend as the Iron Mike prepares for his money-spinning exhibition match.
