You (yes, you!) can train with Mike Tyson in one of his famously gruelling training sessions, for just a snip at £32,000.
Mike Tyson is set to auction off a three-hour training session for one lucky supporter.
The auction has surpassed £15,000 and is expected to reach the dizzying heights of £32,000. What can this £32,000 splurge get you? Well, it gets you a three-hour long meet and greet, and the chance to bring a friend along to train alongside ‘Iron Mike’.
Autographs and pictures with the champ come as standard and lunch will also be included, alongside a boxing glove and t-shirt for the prize winner.
The winner will receive this once in a lifetime opportunity next year, with dates yet to be confirmed.
The 53-year-old, known as ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’, is set to return to the squared circle.
The incredible comeback, of course, will be in the name of charity and his training to return to the ring has attracted social media buzz.
His vicious work on the pads has gone viral, with his quickness, agility and raw power seemingly undiminished despite his older age.
Earlier this week, rumours continued to circle that Tyson would make his comeback against Shannon Briggs in a charity bout. They have a combined age of 101.
Briggs stated that the fight “is official” without real confirmation yet. The prospect of a trilogy fight against nemesis Evander Holyfield could also be in the works.
Tyson, of course, had his boxing license revoked for his disqualification in the rematch and also a whopping $3 million fine by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
In Tyson’s career it was far from the first time he had gotten into trouble with authorities, after he was jailed for three years, guilty of rape in 1992.
It marked the falling star of Tyson’s career after he became the youngest heavyweight champion of the world in 1986. He held the title for four years prior to his shocking defeat to Buster Douglas in 1990.
Tyson would return to jail on account of assault prior to appearing again in both boxing and wrestling rings, the latter as part of WWF’s marquee WrestleMania event in 1998.
Tyson’s fortune was spent wildly on cars, something well documented, and by 2003 he was forced to sell-up his garages worth of vehicles. He declared bankruptcy, admittedly blowing his $330 million fortune.
Two years later, Tyson retired with a record of 50 victories and just six defeats. His nemesis included the likes of Lennox Lewis, whom he fought for the undisputed heavyweight championship in 2002.
He has since opened a cannabis ranch in California and opened up about his mental health in recent times.
