Mike Tyson is coming to Shark Week 2020!
Legendary boxer and tiger lover Mike Tyson, the former heavyweight champion of the world, will go snout to snout with the most feared predator in the world. A Great White Shark.
I’m there. Tyson Vs. Jaws: Rumble on the Reef on the Discovery Channel on Aug. 9 at 9 p.m. We don’t know what’s going to happen in the ring (or is it a tank?). Mike Tyson will face off against the animal in the “name of research” mano y mano. This is what great tv is all about.
“With famed ring announcer Michael Buffer calling the shots, these two heavyweights will square off underwater, where Mike Tyson will try to score a TKO over the massive shark … all in the name of research,” Discovery said on their website.
Tyson has been looking for a comeback for years. Maybe this is just the shot in the arm he needs.
“I equate this with overcoming my fear of getting back into the ring at 54 years old,” Tyson explained. “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.”
