However, he said, “Na, na we got many guys. Listen we’ve got so many guys that want to do this man. We’re in calls, we’re doing business with guys right now. You’re not going to believe the names when the names come out. Sometime this week we’ll have the contract done.” 

The former 2 times Heavyweight Champion has been firm on his stance of the event is to help the less fortunate. He added that every penny he makes will be for charity. 

“And whatever money we get, it’s going to somebody else. I’m not going to make any money, probably the company, my wife because she’s partners with me, she’ll make some probably. But my money is going. “

Initially ‘Iron’ opened up on his physical condition and frame of mind that led him to concoct this philanthropic event.

“I’m feeling better than I’ve ever felt in my life. God has been merciful to me man. I’m gonna get on with it, I’m looking good. Yo Wayne, I’m 230 right now! Man I’m just getting ready you know, I’m just getting ready to help some people out who are less fortunate than me. I’m gonna do this charity event.”

“I’m going to take this money and help these homeless and we’re going to help these addicted brothers. Because I’ve been homeless and I’ve been addicted so I know the struggle. Not many people have survived like I did.”

‘Iron’s generous gesture will win admirers all over the world. However, he is smart enough to know that a trilogy fight with ‘The Real Deal’ will mint money and help him achieve his goals in a grand manner.
