There are the first offers of exhibition matches for the legendary Mike Tyson (50-6, 44 KO), who last week announced his return to the ring and subsequently caused a crack with his short video where he showed his art. And at least one sounds more than interesting.
It was to be expected. Offers could be expected to start flying. And that journalists will find out about them, because those interested will want to see.
Australian promoter Brian Amatruda told the British Daily Mail that he was willing to pay a million dollars for a duel of the youngest heavyweight champion against one of the three Barry Hall (0-0-1), Paul Gallen (9-0-1, 5 KO), or Sonny Bill Williams (7-0, 3 KO).
The first named is a 43-year-old veteran of Australian football, the other pair are great rugby players. The 38-year-old Gallen has spent eighteen seasons in the National Rugby League (played by teams from Australia and New Zealand), this year the 35-year-old Williams is the biggest star of all named in both of his sports.
The native of Auckland, New Zealand, won all seven of his duels among the pros, and at one time there was talk of a clash with a young compatriot, Joseph Parker. With a national team nicknamed All Blacks, this tough guy has two world titles at home (2011 and 2015).
I could imagine it in the Melbourne Arena for 10,000 spectators, or in Princes Park, where we got over thirty thousand people for a duel between Jeff Fenech and Azumah Nelson, who promoted fighters like Anthony Mundine, Danny Green and Lucas Brown.
And also the one between Hall and Gallen, which ended in a draw six rounds six years ago. To make matters worse, the aforementioned Fenech is the last coach of Tyson’s professional career, which ended in 2005.
“He still has a big fanbase”. It’s not just the match, it’s the whole event, we would like to welcome him to us as in 2012, “added Amatruda, reminding him that Tyson was already with his opponents, eight years ago. At that time he received a visa to Australia, on the contrary he was not released to New Zeal
. We have to wait until the anti-coronavirus measures fall, I think it is realistic at the turn of the year at the earliest. I offered his agent Max Markson a million dollars, we’ll see what the reaction will be, “added the Australian promoter.
Given that all the mentioned have a professional record and that the professional duel was originally the exhibition Hall and Gallen, it is suggested that in the end it would not be an exhibition. If Tyson had undergone medical examinations and obtained a local license. And a duel with Williams, who also has the name Franse Bothy in record, who was defeated by the legendary “Beast”? In addition to these names, there is a lot of speculation about others, names such as Danny Williams and Kevin McBride, with whom Tyson lost at the end of his career, and many would like to take revenge for these defeats, which “easily” break his record,
