Rafael Cordeiro: Mike Tyson will box again in September

MMA Fighting

Mike Tyson’s successful return to the boxing rings won’t be a one and done.

The former WBA, WBC and IBF heavyweight champion is currently targeting September for another boxing match, his coach Rafael Cordeiro told MMA Fighting.

Tyson’s opponent is yet to be announced, Cordeiro said, but “Iron” Mike is already training for his next match.

“We continue training,” Cordeiro said. “He’s an athlete and is always training, hitting pads here in the gym. I think we’re going to have something in September. I don’t know who because his company Legends Only League is working on it and negotiating a TV deal so they can announce a schedule, but we’re training. We’ll be fighting in September.”

Tyson founded Legends Only League in July 2020 as new platform for retired boxers to compete in special events, and promoted his first match in 15 years, an exhibition clash with Roy Jones Jr. in Los Angeles, Calif.

Tyson did well in the ring as well as in pay-per-view sales, but the match was declared a draw.
