Mike Tyson has ignited excitement in the boxing world and outside of it with a bold statement. The former heavyweight champion said – “The gods of war have reawakened me”.

Although Tyson is 53 years old now, his trainer Rafael Cordeiro said that the former champion has the speed and power of a 21-year-old boxer. Although a few people encouraged Mike not to step into the ring again at such age, many others were excited to see one of the best boxers on the planet getting in shape. Other Celebrity fighters and wrestlers reacted to the training video that was posted online.
The UFC’s Lightweight Champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov, tweeted “I can’t believe, this is another level”. Also, the WWE superstar, The Rock, tweeted “My brother got me ready to run through a wall now. To the gym I go”. With that much hype behind him, Mike Tyson next match predictions go fans speculating who he will be fighting next. If you do not understand why the return generated this much excitement, allow me to brief you on Tyson’s Marvelous Career.
The Prestigious Career of Mike Tyson
Born in 1966, Mike started his professional boxing career in 1985 when he was just 18 years old. Before that, he won two gold Junior Olympic Games as an amateur in the years 1981 and 1982. In 1985, he made his professional debut after defeating Hector Mercedes via a first-round TKO. Can you imagine? He finished his opponent in his first match when he was 18 years old! Tyson sustained this ferocity as he finished 26 out of his first 28 fights, and 16 of those by a first-round stoppage. Most of the boxers in Tyson’s early career were not on the elite level. However, the first high-level boxer Tyson fought was Marvis Frazier who is a former world title challenger. Tyson won the fight in the first 30 seconds of the first round.
In 1986, Iron Mike fought for the heavyweight title against Trevor Berbick. Winning by a second-round TKO, he became the youngest heavyweight champion in history at just 20 years old. Furthermore, he was the first-ever to hold the three major titles simultaneously after winning the WBA, WBC, and IBF belts. Tyson defended his title nine times before losing it to Buster Douglas in 1990. Throughout his career, Mike was known for his uncharted strength, speed, and accuracy. He retired with a professional record of 50 wins and 6 losses, with 44 knockout wins.
Mike Tyson Next Match Predictions – Who Will He fight?
There have many speculations on who is Mike going to fight. It is likely going to be Evander Holyfield as the latter recently posted a video of him training. The two were rivals in their primes as they fought twice. The first fight took place in 1996, and Holyfield won the fight stopping Tyson in the 11th round. The second fight was controversial as Tyson got disqualified for biting Holyfield’s ear. Therefore, a trilogy will certainly be epic, so prepare to bet on Mike Tyson again as he makes his comeback. Online sportsbook sites in the US are preparing for the comeback of the former heavyweight champion. Betting odds of 1xBET are going to be available the moment an official fight is announced. We will update you on the betting odds once a fight has been announced.
With the current circumstance, Mike Tyson will probably win this match. First, the age factor will play a part in the outcome of the possible boxing match. Tyson is currently 53 years old, while Holyfield is nearing 60. Therefore, Tyson’s body will be certainly stronger than Holyfield’s. Besides, the videos posted by both boxers in training clearly show that Tyson looks stronger, faster, and more motivated than his rival. Tyson’s trainer even said that he still hits like a 21-year-old fighter, so expect him to come out blazing in the ring. Taking this into consideration, my prediction is that he will stop Holyfield sometime mid-fight.
Upcoming Fights in the Heavyweight Division
On the other hand, other epic boxing matches are going to happen in the heavyweight division. For instance, Anthony Joshua, who currently holds the WBA, WBO, IBO and IBF titles, will defend his titles against Pulev. The betting odds on 1xBET are 1.06 for Joshua and 8.7 for Pulev. If you are looking to bet on a boxing match, bet on this match as we wait for an official announcement to bet on Mike Tyson again.
