UFC president Dana White is advicing former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson to step back from his return idea.
Mike wants to put his gloves again and compete in charity fights.
“I love Mike Tyson,” White said on Tim and Sid. “I’m begging him not to go fight. I said you look awesome, you’re still explosive, you’re obviously still powerful, you’re one of the all-time greats.”
“Mike, you’re 53, please don’t do it, please.”
“Bottom line is I don’t want Mike to fight. If it comes down to where he is about to do something crazy, I might have to jump in and figure out something for him not to do it.”
White is not sure just what Tyson has planned.
“He absolutely wants to do something,” Tyson said. “I don’t know what he’s going to do but he absolutely wants to do something.”
