Anthony Joshua doesn’t want to fight Mike Tyson in case the former heavyweight champion returns because he thinks no one wants to see him win.
Tyson, 53, plans to return to the ring after a hard training session, get in shape and show spectacular videos of the pads.
Iron Mike also made a comeback by appearing on the AEW and having fun with fighting legend Chris Jericho.
Will the youngest heavyweight champion in history pull the strings again or not, not yet seen, but it won’t be against AJ.
The reigning WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO heavyweight champion sees no advantage in taking Tyson, and the fans don’t want him to beat Iron Mike.
With all due respect, I wouldn’t do it, Yeshua said to the sun.
Even if I’d fought Iron Mike and hit him, I’d probably be the only one crossing my fingers for him. People would have booed. He’s a legend. He’s the greatest boxer of modern times.
The world only has two recognised champions, Ali and Mike Tyson, who are the most famous faces in the world when it comes to boxing.

Joshua isn’t sure if he’ll ever see Tyson fight again, but unlike other athletes, it won’t surprise him that he has the DNA of a professional boxer.
That’s how I see it: How old is David Beckham, 44, 45? Joshua wanted to know.
If after 10 years you see him kick the ball, make 100 shots, go around the world and hit the crossbar and then fill it up in the top corner, people will be happy.
But because Mike Tyson is the embodiment of the killing machine, he hits the foot guards for 15 seconds and the whole world goes crazy, that’s normal.
Tyson knows that. But the fact that he’s fighting… Would you be shocked if Beckham came back? That’s what you’d do. But for the boxers, that’s all they know.

The Olympic champion has made similar comments in recent weeks, suggesting that Tyson doesn’t even see this as a comeback, but only as an attitude to life.
Joshua told the British GQ: That’s what we breathe. We are. And especially a guy like Iron Mike Tyson, that’s all he knows.
For everyone else it’s a comeback, but for him it’s exactly what he does. He’s a fighter, isn’t he?
He probably just took a little break, but it’s the same for everyone else: Oh, my God! Mike Tyson’s coming back!
But for Mike Tyson: That’s what I do. I’m a fighter by nature, so when he comes back in the ring, I’d like to see him. I’ll be in the audience, that’s for sure.
