Former heavyweight champion and boxing legend Mike Tyson, 54, announced on Thursday that he will fight Roy Jones Jr. in an eight-round exhibition on September 12.

During an interview on ESPN, Tyson explained the reasoning for his return to the ring: "It's because I can do it. And I believe other people believe they can do it too" he also said "Just because we are 54, it doesn't mean that we have to start a new career and our lives are totally over. Not when you feel as beautiful as I do, and I'm sure that other people feel the same way."
