With evidence pointing to Mike Tyson’s return to the boxing ring for a benefit fight at age 53, potential opponents for the former champion are already beginning to be speculated. And who made a point of placing among the candidates was Tito Ortiz, former light heavyweight champion of the UFC .
In his official Instagram account, Tito posted a photo of himself next to an image of the boxing legend and, in the caption, asked Tyson about a possible date for the duel.
“Mike Tyson – Legend vs. Legend on pay-per-view! When are we going to do it? ” wrote the UFC Hall of Fame member.
Willing to return to the ring in a charity fight in order to raise funds to help the most needy, the former world boxing champion has even signaled positively for a new duel against Evander Holyfield, who also resumed training.
In turn, Tito Ortiz remains active, although not as often as before. The former UFC champion last performed in December 2019, when he overcame Alberto Rodriguez via submission at Combate Americas.
