His father Mike Tyson has also taken a serious plunge into e-investments and several financial deals. Besides, in-ring appearances can continue to offer big economical digits for ‘Iron’ Mike.

Despite his age, Tyson can still be a PPV attraction and has grabbed call-outs from several directions. Logan Paul pitched himself for a fight against Tyson, which never came close to fruition. Meanwhile, Shannon Briggs and Evander Holyfield had also expressed interest in facing ‘Iron’ Mike. Thus, Tyson can pocket millions by stepping through the ropes.

He will reportedly appear in an Indian movie titled Liger, and that is just one of the many things Tyson is currently associated with. It’s safe to say that ‘Iron’ Mike still relishes the stardom that he had seen in his prime years of boxing, and only a few of his time could remain relevant for such a long period.
