Mike Tyson's latest opponent has been chosen - and it won't be in a boxing ring. Instead, the former heavyweight champ will take on a great white shark in Tyson Vs. Jaws: Rumble on the Reef - a tv special for the Discovery Channel's 'Shark Week'. Confused? So are we.
Here's what Discovery had to say: "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."
This sounds a lot like back in 2017 when the Discovery Channel added Olympic champion Michael Phelps on to their program to race a great white shark. Phelps lost to the shark by a mire 2 seconds. But I'd imagine 'losing' this match will be more dangerous. But of course they'll make it relatively safe. Just wait for that uppercut!
The ocean battle will go down August 9th. Who ya got - Iron Mike or the shark?
How do you think this 'heavyweight battle' will go down?
