Mike Tyson also turned down a $30m offer to make his return in a bare-knuckle fight.
Bare-Knuckle Fighting Championship president David Feldman looked to seize an opportunity with a mega offer.
“We offered Tyson US $20 million (NZ$30m) and some additional benefits, but he turned it down,” Feldman told.
Moreover Tyson continues to post regular social media updates of himself looking fit and dangerous in training videos.
Furthermore Here is how social media reacted to his new video:
Love Mike, he looks so sharp for 54. I still don’t think he should fight tho. We’ve seen the prime Mike. Idk if Mike can take a punch nowadays, and would hate to see him KO’d.

Mike Tyson Profile
Michael Gerard Tyson (born June 30, 1966) is an American former professional boxer who competed from 1985 to 2005.
He reigned as the undisputed world heavyweight champion from 1987 to 1990 and was the first heavyweight boxer to simultaneously hold the WBA, WBC, and IBF titles, as well as the only heavyweight to successively unify them.
Tyson won his first 19 professional fights by knockout, 12 of them in the first round.
He won the WBC title in 1986 after stopping Trevor Berbick in the second round, and added the WBA and IBF titles after defeating James Smith and Tony Tucker in 1987.
The following year, Tyson became the lineal champion when he knocked out Michael Spinks in 91 seconds of the first round.
He successfully defended his titles nine times, which included victories over Larry Holmes and Frank Bruno.
In 1990, Tyson lost the titles to underdog Buster Douglas, who knocked him out in the tenth round.
Attempting to regain the titles, Tyson defeated Donovan Ruddock twice in 1991, but pulled out of a fight with then-undisputed heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield (who had defeated Douglas later in 1990) due to a rib injury.
