Is Mike Tyson calling it a boxing career?
The former heavyweight champ says that he still hasn’t been paid for his 2020 fight with Roy Jones Jr. and that he probably won’t fight again.
On the Full Send Podcast, Tyson was asked whether he has been paid in full for his fight.
“Most of it, but there’s still a bunch that’s held up and I can’t even say anything about this. Yeah, it was really tricky,” said Tyson.
The boxer was then asked about the possibility of him taking on one of the Paul brothers.

“I’m not even interested in doing this stuff. If it was back when it first started, yes, and we were both fighting on the same card and both active, yeah I would do it but it just turned bad. It didn’t turn out right,” he said.
“I know, I don’t think I will [fight] either but you never know again. Every 12 to 13 months, boom, something is missing. Like, something is missing. Boom, I’m missing muscle mass, boom, it’s always something different.
“Guys want to fight me for $100 million. I don’t think I’ll ever do stuff like that anymore. I wanted to do it the first time [against Jones], just for fun, to have fun. Some people took it to another level and made it financial and the fun went out of it.”
If Tyson needs the money bad enough, you know he’ll jump back into the ring.
But it sounds like his weed business is paying the bills, so not much of a need for a payday in the ring.
Iron Mike deserves to stay out of the ring if he wants to.
