Five opponents for Mike Tyson second comeback fight on May 29 including Evander Holyfield, Oliver McCall and Tyson Fury

MIKE TYSON'S comeback trail is showing no signs of ending after he announced his next fight on May 29.

The heavyweight legend sensationally returned to the ring, 15 years after retiring, in November.

He drew with fellow legend Roy Jones Jr and right away revealed he was counting down the days until he could do it all again.

Tyson recently said on his podcast with guest Canelo Alvarez that his second exhibition would be in Miami on May 29.

Here SunSport runs down five potential opponents who could face Iron Mike.

Evander Holyfield

Holyfield, 58, was inspired be Tyson, 54, to make a return of his own and the pair are now in talks for a trilogy bout 24 years in the making.

Tyson was twice beaten by his iconic rival, firstly in 1996 and then infamously a year later when he bite Holyfield's ear.

With a combined age of 112, the former champions look set to face off once again with a lucrative payday in the Middle East awaiting them.


Oliver McCall

McCall's history with Tyson dates back to 1887 when they spent a year as sparring partners.

They never got to do it for real in the pros but their heated sessions in the gym have since become on YouTube.

After Tyson announced plans to fight again, McCall, 55, was one of the first to call him out.

Roy Jones Jr

After the pound-for-pound great could not be separated with Tyson, the pair both called for a rematch.

Jones, 51, said: “I’m cool with a draw, just might have to do it again." and Tyson responded: “We’ve got to do that again."

But since then, with Iron Mike now in negotiations with Holyfield, RJJ has instead put his focus on facing ex-UFC champion Anderson Silva, 45.

Shannon Briggs

The king of 'Let's Go Champ' and Tyson are good friends, but it has not stopped Briggs, 49, from campaigning to fight Iron Mike.

He last year announced plans to return both as a pro boxer and in bare-knuckle.

But having fought as recently as 2016, Tyson would be well advised to pick a more evenly matched veteran.

Tyson Fury

Amazingly, WBC king Fury revealed he was approached for a pay-per-view spectacle with his namesake, but it was Tyson who priced himself out.

The Gypsy King has remained open to the fantasy fight and said he was so frustrated with drawn out talks to face Anthony Joshua he would consider boxing Iron Mike.

Fury, 32, told iFL TV: “I don’t care. I don’t care if it’s Joe Bloggs, Fred Flintstone, Mike Tyson, anybody. I just want to fight this year.”
