Mike Tyson Has date set on who and when he fights!!!

UFC President Dana White, who is close friends with former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, expects the boxer to enter the ring for something big.

Tyson, 53-years-old and inactive since 2005, has discussed the scenario of coming back to the ring to take part in a few exhibition fights to raise money for charity.

The retired boxer has been posting training clips - which went viral all over the internet. Tyson is certainly in great shape for his age, and wanted everyone to see his speed and power. 

Tyson has received numerous comeback offers - including one proposal worth over $20 million from Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship.

Evander Holyfield, Shannon Briggs, Tito Ortiz, Ken Shamrock and Sonny Bill Williams are among the numerous fighters who are eager to get Tyson in the ring.

Tyson recently stated that he's close to finalizing his return, which White claims is going to be something worth watching.

"Originally, I came out and said, 'Listen, I'd like Mike not to fight,'" said White to ESPN. "I even got Mike a TV show, to try and keep him from fighting. But Mike Tyson is a grown man, he can do whatever. The guy is powerful, looks explosive and has gotten himself in great shape.

"From what I'm hearing from them, they have something lined up, something big. He's going to get in there. We talked about it and he said, 'Listen, I feel that fire in my stomach. I want to get in there and mix it up again.' I'm fully supportive of him."

White is planning to be ringside for Tyson's return. Even if the event takes place behind closed doors, White will figure out a way to watch the fight live from the arena.

"I'll be at this one, I will absolutely go," White said. "I don't care if there's no crowd allowed. I'll figure out how to get into that one."
