I’m normally against the idea of posting an ad or spon-con as editorial content but I’m going to make an exception right now with this latest Mike Tyson training video:
I get that this is sped up to make it look more cinematic and it’s hard to gauge what Tyson, 53, would look like in real time or a real fight, but this video has really made me very curious to find out. At its essence, that is what selling fights is all about.
There have been all sorts of rumors, innuendo, and callouts in the fight industry. The two most notable ones were rumors that he’ll have a third fight against Evander Holyfield, and Jon Jones challenging him to a fight. There’s also been speculation that Dana White and ESPN could be involved with his comeback, which would bring the hype into even more overdrive.
I don’t know when, where, or whom Tyson will be fighting, but I already know I’m gonna plunk down the $75 or whatever to watch it.
