Rocco Tyson is really not doing an imitation of his...
Last week, GLORY announced that fighting icon ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson would be joining the broadcast team for its upcoming GLORY 19 event.
Prior to taking up his role on fight night Tyson has been filming segments for a Countdown-style preview show which is set to air on Spike TV on Friday, January 30. At the weekend GLORY released an out-take from last week’s shoot, with Tyson poking fun at the infamous ear-biting incident in his fight with Evander Holyfield
Tyson is of course no stranger to kickboxing. In 2003 he faced off with Bob Sapp at a K-1 event in Las Vegas and was in talks to sign with the organization to fight the behemoth former NFL player.
There were also talks for a fight with Mirko ‘CroCop’ Filipovic. The Croatian is currently part of GLORY’s heavyweight division but there are, sadly, no plans for Tyson to come out of retirement and make that fight happen.
