OREANDA-NEWS. American boxing world champion Mike Tyson said that he intends to return to the ring to raise funds for charity.

“I’ve been working out, I’ve been trying to get in the ring, I think I’m going to box some exhibitions and get in shape. I want to go to the gym and get in shape to be able to box three or four-round exhibitions for some charities and stuff. Some charity exhibitions, make some money, help some homeless and drug-affected motherf... like me,” 53-year-old boxer explained.

Mike Tyson won WBA, WBC, and IBF championship belts for several years. In 1986, he became the youngest world champion. In a professional ring, Tyson scored 50 victories (44 by knock out), suffered six defeats, and two fights were declared nullified. His last fight took place in 2005.
