While talking to other in-ring great – Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, “Iron Mike” pointed out the end of May as a potential date and the stadium in Miami where Canelo recently defeated Avni Yildirim.
“May 29th something like that. The same arena you fought in.”, Tyson said.

On fighting Roy Jones jr. last year, the legend elaborated.
“I felt better than I anticipated. I thought I would be a little more nervous than I was. But, I was relaxed. I felt like, wow, I could do some more, I could punch more combinations, I could do this and do that. I said, ‘Wow, this is interesting.’ And I want to do it again, and I want to do it against someone I could go all out on. It made me interested in wanting to do it again. I wanted to go the distance. I didn’t want to knock anybody out. That’s what people expected, but I wanted to go the distance.”
