I was wondering the year 2020, you know, with all this diversity and division. And yet all the controversy surrounding coronavirus, how do you think we get the inner peace in this crisis?” asked Tyson.

Initially scheduled to be an exhibition match, the much-awaited bout will not be sanctioned by the California Athletic State Commission. Ahead of the fight, author and yogi Sadhuru also had words of praise for Iron Mike.

“I wish you the best of luck, Mike, and it’s amazing that you have chosen to return towards something that you love doing,” Sadhguru said.

Sadhguru posted a video on his Instagram page alongside Iron Mike where he can be seen answering Tyson’s question.

Responding to the former champion, Sadhguru stated that peace lies within. “Peace cannot be found in America, Africa, or anywhere else in the world. It can only be found within yourself.

Additionally, Sadhguru sent his best regards as he praised Tyson’s decision to step inside the boxing ring. Sadhguru himself, at the age of 63, is currently enjoying a country-wide road trip across the United States of America.
