He said, “One day I was playing golf, and I turned into the ball. The thing (golf club) came out of my hand and boom on somebody’s car.”

Both Canelo and Tyson agreed that golf is an exciting yet tough sport. Tyson even asserted that you can hang out with your friends and enjoy the sport at once, and that’s what makes it amazing.

Despite Tyson having a vivid interest in various other sports, but his love for boxing prevails even today. At age 54, Tyson laced up the boxing gloves to compete with Roy Jones Jr. in an exhibition bout. This in itself is proof of how much ‘Iron’ Mike values boxing in his life.

His bout with ‘Captain Hook’ accrued a massive 1.6 million PPV buys, making it one of the best events in boxing history. Moreover, Tyson might lace up the boxing gloves once again to roll out an enigmatic show for the fans.

His motive to enter the squared circle for an exhibition fight is to positively impact individuals’ lives in some way or the other, as all of his exhibitions are for charity.

In fact, in his last ring outing, Tyson showed a snippet of his former self by pushing all the limits. This holds true for whatever ‘The Baddest Man On The Planet’ does, and fans will truly be on board with Tyson-the golfer.
