With Joshua Announcing Support For Tyson's Comeback, Some Are Speculating About A Future Fight - But It's Way Too Early
Current Boxing Champion, Anthony Joshua, has voiced his support for the return of boxing legend Mike Tyson aka 'Iron Mike' to the boxing ring at the age of 53.
Tyson revealed early this month that he will be making a return to the ring to raise money for charity and has been uploading footage of his training routine.
He has also taken a lot of criticism for his comeback plan including from ex-champion George Foreman.
Nevertheless, Tyson has looked the fittest he has in years, and his videos have shown that he still possesses much of the speed and explosive power that made him the youngest heavyweight champion in boxing history

Anthony Joshua, who currently holds the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight belts revealed that 'Iron Mike' was his idol growing up and would relish his return to the sport.
"If he's back in the ring then I would love to see it, I would definitely be one of the viewers that's for sure,
"That's the man who got me [into boxing].
"This is what we breathe, this is what we are, and especially someone like Iron Mike Tyson, that's all that man knows,"
It has been 15 years since Mike Tyson last fought professionally, which was a defeat to Kevin McBride, but Joshua insists the American will only view his time away from the sport as an extended absence.
If Mike Tyson succeeds and rises in the heavyweight ranks could there be a possible fight between the protégée and idol?
Quite possibly and only time will tell as everything is possible in boxing.
