Just when we thought the ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’ was settling down he was doing the opposite, announcing Tyson vs Jaws: Rumble on the Reef as part of the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week.
On the 9th of August, we will see the matchup of the former heavyweight champion of the world vs one of the most feared predators in the ocean.
In the name of “scientific research”, the 54-year-old will take part in an underwater stunt, dropping him in the middle of great white territory.
With the legendary Michael Buffer taking part in the event, this will be one for the history books.
A Discovery statement said, “With famed ring announcer Michael Buffer calling the shots, these two heavyweights will square off underwater, where Mike Tyson will try to score a TKO over the massive shark … all in the name of research.”
Tyson said, “I equate this with overcoming my fear of getting back into the ring at 54-years-old.”
