Mike Tyson has confirmed his plans to return to ring in February next year.

Tyson made a shock comeback last year in an exhibition against former heavyweight legend Roy Jones Jr.

The bout was declared a draw but many believed that Tyson should have won, after landing Jones by a wide margin.

The event reportedly generated more than 1.6 million pay-per-view buys – with Jake Paul fighting former NBA point guard Nate Robinson on the under card – as Tyson earned a purse of around £7.5m and Jones approximately £2.25m.

Now, Tyson has confirmed that he plans to return to the ring in February 2022 with reports that YouTube star Logan Paul could be his next opponent.

Tyson said during his attendance at the undisputed clash between Canelo Alvarez and Caleb Plant at the weekend: “God willing I’ll fight again in February.”

Tyson had previously claimed he would make his return when he told The Sun : “I am going to have a return fight in February and we are pretty skeptical about the opponent, but it will be a really stimulating opponent.”

Mike Tyson vs Logan Paul could be a potential fight for next year

YouTube host of channel, Drama Alert Keemstar, appeared to previously confirm rumours that Paul would face Tyson in an exhibition bout, with talks already underway.

This fuelled speculation that the pair would meet in their next respective bouts after Paul had faced his own historic exhibition against retired star Floyd Mayweather back in June.

Tyson has previously given his backing to the YouTube fighting brothers who have made a name for themselves in the sport after Paul fought fellow YouTuber KSI.
