MIKE TYSON still has the ability ‘to fight anybody’ – including Anthony Joshua or Tyson Fury.
The 54-year-old returned to the ring and fought out an entertaining eight-round exhibition bout against fellow icon Roy Jones Jr on Saturday.

And Jones Jr claims ‘Iron Mike’ can still mix with the best after admitting his body is still feeling the effects of their showdown, which ended in a draw.
He said: “I’m happy to scratch it off the bucket list and move on with my life.
“He hit harder, his hands hurt, his head hurts [my hands], everything hurt that makes contact.
“He’s capable of fighting anybody. If he catches you, you’re going to have problems.
“I was feeling everything. He’s an exceptional puncher, still.
“All it takes is one punch from either one of us for something to happen.
“He can do anything he wants to do.”
Weed-smoking Tyson, who claims a toad venom drug told him to make his boxing return, had previously admitted he would love a crack at the current heavyweight kings.
But he wants to test himself against Joshua and Fury only in the name of charity.
He told BT Sport: “I think they’re brilliant. They’re brilliant fighters. They could do so much for society.
“They could have exhibitions and take the money from the exhibitions, because they’re such big crowd pleasers and they could help so many people.
“There’s so many people out there that we can do so much for, and it wouldn’t even be a 10th of their charitable heart to do something like that.
“In fact, fight exhibitions with me, and most of our charity would go to people who desperately need it.
“I want you to label them as exhibitions because there are no hard feelings.”
