It happened in 2020: Mike Tyson ‘declined’ a fight proposal from Wanderlei Silva, and the Brazilian mocked the boxing legend; check it out

The year 2020 was marked by the coronavirus pandemic, which had an impact on various aspects of society. World boxing legend Mike Tyson announced he would be returning to the ring, after 15 years. As soon as he made this announcement, several promoters tried to take advantage of “Iron Mike’s” return hype. Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC), a boxing event, with no gloves, offered US $ 18 million for Tyson to face Wanderlei Silva – a proposal that was denied by the former world heavyweight champion.

As soon as he heard of the refusal, Wanderlei wasted no time in mocking Tyson on social media. Mike’s return to the rings, was last November when he faced Roy Jones Jr in an “exhibition” fight.
