As one of the most iconic sportsmen of his generation, the future of Mike Tyson continues to dominate the column inches of sporting publications the world over.
Following his impressive showing against fellow veteran Roy Jones Jr last month, speculation begins to reign about how much longer ‘Iron Mike’ would be gracing boxing rings.
Both Tyson and Jones Jr showed that there was plenty of life in the old dogs yet and betting odds are continually surfacing on the future of Mike Tyson and his fighting prospects.
Boxing continues to be one of the most bet on sports in the world and with the likes of Mike Tyson having betting odds thrust into the market on a daily basis, punters are truly spoilt for choice.
With fights taking place all over the world despite the detrimental impact of COVID 19 on the sport, boxing betting enthusiasts have never had it easier.
Mike Tyson Next Fight Odds
With Mike Tyson getting himself into phenomenal physical shape before his fight with Roy Jones Jr – at the tender age of 54 – there is plenty of speculation that he will sustain his comeback.
Tyson is currently 10/11 with Paddy Power to not step into the ring in a competitive environment again but his performance against Jones Jr has certainly whetted the appetite of the wider sporting community.
Currently, the best odds on Tyson to return to the ring in any capacity are 5/2 with William Hill in 2021, whilst he is 13/10 with the same bookmaker to make any sort of comeback.
Whether he steps into the ring again or not, public intrigue around Tyson is at the highest it has been in nearly 20 years and with Iron Mike back in supreme condition, anything could seemingly happen.
Mike Tyson Next Opponent Odds
The list of potential opponents that would want to share the ring with the iconic Mike Tyson is rather long, however how many fighters could step up to the plate remains to be seen.
At the age of 54, Tyson is too old to receive a professional boxing license – meaning whoever he faces in his next bout – it will be an exhibition encounter.
Despite the absence of knockouts, Tyson’s meeting with Jones Jr was further proof that boxing is much more of a contest than just explosive K.O’s.
A grudge match with Evander Holyfield would be the natural fit for Tyson, following his infamous ear bite that saw him suspended from boxing for 18 months.
Holyfield is notorious for keeping himself in supreme condition at all times, adding further weight to the calls for him to take on Tyson and at 4/6 with Bet365, he is the clear favourite to take on Mike Tyson next – should he choose to fight again. Former British World Heavyweight Champion Lennox Lewis is another name hot on the lips of every boxing fan and he too remains in excellent shape, despite retiring well over a decade ago. At 3/1 with Betfred, the prospect of Tyson vs Lewis looks a longer shot but should the two reunite in the ring, it would be a fascinating encounter.
