Most of his earnings stemmed inside the ring; however, the youngest heavyweight champion also bagged several promotion deals and brand endorsement offers outside the realm of boxing.

Through his career as a knockout artist and even through his retirement, the boxing superstar secured massive paydays outside boxing.

From bagging endorsement deals from major brands to appearing in video games to starring in Hollywood films and even reality shows, Mike Tyson has done it all.

However, he is not done just yet. Apart from teasing a return to boxing after fighting Roy Jones Jr in 2020, Tyson also recently wrapped up his very first pan-India project, on a film named ‘Liger’.

To promote the release of his Bollywood debut film, Tyson recently posted a poster of the film on Instagram and captioned it in a typical manner.

Namaste INDIA. Be ready to get the ever-loving shit beat out of you #LIGER @thedeverakonda. Happy Diwali,” wrote Mike Tyson on Instagram.

Mike Tyson knows a cash grab when he sees one

Mike Tyson punching Zach Galifianakis in the face and singing at a wedding in ‘The Hangover’ movie series are some of the most iconic and funniest scenes ever.

Post-retirement, ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’ gained even more recognition through his appearances in the series. Apart from just gaining mass recognition, he also bagged $200,000 each for his brief scenes in the two Hangover movies.

Clearly, Mike Tyson knows a cash grab when he sees one. Obviously,  this new Bollywood venture called ‘Liger’ is just another major cash grab for the champ.

This became evident as the champ seemed absolutely clueless about the movie on a recent ‘Full Send Podcast’ episode with the Nelk Boys.

When asked if he’s even in the movie, Tyson responded –

The movie name is Liger, I don’t know, lets just look at the trailer s**t, look at the trailer of the movie. All you n***** surprising me, All these n***** surprising me, I don’t know about the f*****g movie,” Tyson said.

Kyle Foregeard then joked, “Mike shredded f*****g 5 pounds of DMT, and then took a flight to India”.

Tyson, unsure of himself, said out loud, “It can’t be my trailer. Oh s**t, this is my trailer!”. Turns out, they weren’t watching the actual trailer of the movie.
