Former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson would embrace the scenario of facing Anthony Joshua in an exhibition fight for charity.
Tyson, 54-years-old, is scheduled to return to the ring on November 28 in an eight round exhibition fight with 51-year-old former four division champion Roy Jones Jr.
The contest will be the first for Tyson since 2005, when he was stopped by journeyman Kevin McBride.
The fight with Jones will be distributed on pay-per-view.
According to Tyson, the main goal of his upcoming ring return is to raise money for charity.
If the pay-per-view event is a success, Tyson would like to continue doing more exhibition fights for charity, and he doesn’t rule out the scenario of facing an active top-rated heavyweight.
“If doing that means we can have bigger charity exponents, well be it, I’m down to do that too. This is all being done for charity, and if they’re down to do that, I’m with it too. “It’s entertainment, it’s just for charity – it’s for a good cause, but we’re giving our best,” Tyson stated in a video posted by IFL TV.
And when questioned directly on the scenario of facing Joshua for charity – if someone staked a lot of money for a worthy cause – Tyson would accept quickly.
“I would love to do that. That would be mind blowing,” Tyson said.
Joshua is scheduled to defend his WBA, IBO, IBF, WBO heavyweight titles against mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev on the tentative date of December 12.
