The match between Andy Ruiz vs Anthony Joshua surprised everyone this year. The match was won by Ruiz, who was seen as a heavy underdog and it surprised those who were betting on the match, as well as Ruiz himself as he celebrated rather passionately after winning the titles from AJ. However, as a rematch looms between the two, will Ruiz be able to retain?
Boxing legend ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson recently commented on who he expects to win a rematch between Ruiz vs Joshua.
🔮 Mike Tyson asked if Andy Ruiz Jr can beat Anthony Joshua again in their rematch: “He can do it. If he did it once, he can do it again. We’ll have to find out… He was here the other day. It was really nice hanging out with him, he’s really a beautiful person." [@ESPNDeportes]

Will Tyson Return For One More Match?
No. It is highly unlikely that Mike Tyson will ever set foot in the boxing ring again. This is because first off, he is 53 years old and hasn’t boxed in forever now! Furthermore, he is a successful entrepreneur who has started off with various businesses of late. Thirdly, his body has taken quite a beatdown over the years and it will take an immense amount of training for him to fight. Hence, it is unlikely that “Iron” Mike Tyson will return.
