Mike Tyson Offered 1 Million For A Fight

Mike Tyson Offered 1 Million For A Fight

There’s currently an ongoing argument amongst wrestling fans on whether or not Mike Tyson is still a draw in 2020. Some say he clearly is a draw, but not as big as he once was.

Others say Mike Tyson is just as big or bigger than he ever was. Based on the ratings from AEW: Dynamite, he certainly helped last night’s show draw viewers.

According to Fightful, Mike Tyson was just offered big-time money for a fight. Iron Mike was offered $1,000,000 to fight Italian Heavyweight Champion, Juiseppe Angelo Cusumano, by Classic Entertainment and Sports.

In addition, he was offered a percentage of the closed-circuit receipts to be negotiated. Also, they offered to make a $200,000 donation to a charity of his wife’s choosing.

If Tyson can get an offer to have a boxing match for 1 million dollars, he certainly must still be a draw of some kind. It will be interesting to see if the details of what he’s making for appearing for AEW ever come out.

Jericho and Tyson got into a brawl to end last night’s Dynamite. Jericho also commented he thinks Tyson can have a wrestling match.

It wouldn’t be surprising to see Tyson/ Jericho be a part of the card at all out.
