Tyson has been getting himself in shape with MMA coach Rafael Cordeiro.

His motivation to stage the exhibition bouts is to raise money for charity.

That’s all I’ve been doing, getting into shape,” Tyson said on a #PlayApartTogether live stream on Facebook.

“I feel unstoppable now. I feel the same again. The gods of war ignited my ego and want me to go to war again. Imagine if I went out there and fought and I could help all these people we talked about.”

Not only does Tyson have an offer from Evander Holyfield, but it seems like UFC legend turned wrestler Ken Shamrock wants a piece of Iron Mike as well.

During an interview on Fightnet, the 56-year-old Shamrock said that he’s down to fight

“I’m always hungry to fight,” . “That’s in my DNA. I love doing it, I’ve always loved doing it. At the same time I’ve also got to be smart too, and understand that it has to be something that makes sense if I’m going to get in the ring. I’m not going to fight some 27-year-old in his prime. It would be ridiculous for me to do that.

“But if something made sense, I would do it,”. “I love competing. I’ve always loved competing. Someone like Mike Tyson would be a perfect fight for me, because it’s something I love doing. I love competing and I love competing against the best, so it’d be a perfect scenario for me.”

Tyson is absolutely ripped right now and would definitely kill Shamrock if the two fought today.
