At the age of 54, Mike Tyson must be cautious in his pursuit of a return to boxing … the ring is a dangerous place for young men and potentially deadly for anyone about to become a senior!
- Mike Tyson turned 54 this week, but once admitted he was surprised to turn 30
- Iron Mike plots a boxing match, either in charity exhibitions or full fights
- But the ring is a dangerous place for anyone who will soon become a senior
Mike Tyson celebrated his 54th birthday on Monday.
When he turned 30, he told some of us that he was amazed that he had lived so long and was not expecting to live before his 40th.
That his crazy drug-driven lifestyle would kill him. Or he died in a street fight. Or he would be murdered on one of his occasional returns to his hometown, Brownsville, New York, where many of his old enemies still lived.

Now Iron Mike is talking about returning to boxing, either in charity exhibitions or full fights for another bid for the heavyweight world title. Maybe starting with a trilogy fight against his nemesis Evander Holyfield.
This, just as we thought he had reached adulthood. An idea supported by videos of him back in a muscular shape and pounding the punching bag with what resembles his old knockout power.
Careful, Mike. The ring is a dangerous place for young men and possibly deadly for anyone who is soon to become an older citizen, classified in America as people reaching the age of 55. Like Holyfield did two years ago.
Will any of them heed a wiser counselor?
Well, Tyson continues to describe himself as crazy as he regains his solvency through his Nevada legal cannabis farm. While Holyfield is still broke.
Heaven helps them.
The 54-year-old has to be careful if he makes a remarkable return to the ring
Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller, who messed up millions after failing a drug test on the eve of his first heavyweight title against Anthony Joshua, has done it again.
Just as he was on the verge of a suspension comeback in Las Vegas this month, Miller tested positive for a new belly full of performance-enhancing nasties.
Yet he denies and claims for the second time that he has never knowingly used steroids and that he has either accidentally eaten contaminated food or that something he has ingested has been enriched by a rival ‘because he really is the best heavyweight in the world is’.
Tell that to Tyson Fury, Anthony Joshua or Deontay Wilder.
Try telling that to the Nevada State Athletic Commission as they decide if he should be kicked out of life this time.
Once a big baby, always a big baby.
