Fans are going bonkers when heard Mike Tyson is set to make comeback. Tyson will be back in the ring almost after 15 years and his recent videos in which he's seen practicing for the match is making everyone excited.

The former heavyweight champion had previously revealed he was considering a return to the ring for some exhibition bouts to raise money for charity. It's not clear who he'll be fighting with, but Gipsy King Tyson Fury and Tito Ortiz confirmed that they've been approached to fight against Tyson.

"I was watching Mike Tyson hit pads with one of my old trainers and Tyson was like the old Tyson, fast and speed and powerful and I was like, 'Wow, Tyson's going to make a comeback?' And all of a sudden, two days later, I get a phone call, and someone starts asking me, 'What do you think about fighting Mike Tyson?' I was like, 'Really? This is the opportunity of my life, I'm in,'" Oritz said.

While Fury, said, "I did get a phone call with a chance to fight Mike Tyson and I was like, ‘What?’. “I had a phone call saying, ‘Would you like to fight Mike Tyson in an exhibition fight?’, and I was like, ‘Hell yeah!'”

Interestingly, Fury acquired his first name from the former champion, and Tyson, on the other hand, has always been vocal about his fondness of the Fury. Thus, a showdown between the two will go down as one of the greatest fights in boxing history.
