Black men in America have to fight against racism, now the COVID-19 pandemic, but Mike Tyson is gearing up to throw hands with a Great White Shark.

The former heavyweight champion has been relentlessly teasing his return to the ring. But it looks like his battle was with the ocean’s most feared apex predators.

“I took on this challenger to overcome fears I still deal with in life,” Tyson said in a statement.

“I equate this with overcoming my fear of getting back into the ring at 54 years old. I learned from this experience doing ‘Shark Week’ that whatever intimidates me, I am still able to step up to the challenge of overcoming anything that would prevent me from accomplishing my life’s mission of reaching my highest potential in life and bringing me closer to God.” “I took on this challenger to overcome fears I still deal with in life,” Tyson said in a statement.
Shark Week begins on August 9th at 8. P.M.
