Mike Tyson Agrees to Fight Russian MMA Fighters Alexander Yemeliánenko and Sergey Jaritonov

One of boxing legend Mike Tyson’s rivals, who intends to return to the ring to take part in exhibition fights, could be a Russian heavyweight mixed martial arts fighter.

Renowned Russian boxing promoter Vladimir Jriunov announced Thursday via Instagram that he proposed to Tyson a fight under box rules against Sergey Jaritonov or Alexander Yemeliánenko, and that the former US heavyweight champion is not against the initiative.

Jriunov added that his task now will be to agree on such a duel with one of the two Russian fighters.

In addition, he clarified that this possible combat would take place within the framework of the international mixed martial arts tournament World Total Kombat Federation (WTKF) in Belarus.

Hours later, Jaritonov declared that he accepts the “challenge” to face Tyson, of whom he said was his childhood idol.

Yemeliánenko had also already expressed his desire to fight the boxing legend even before Jriunov’s announcement.
