Mike Tyson removes mask for selfies as boxing legend is mobbed by fans during day out at Venice Beach


- Advertisment -

MIKE TYSON’S face mask was not enough to stop fans recognising him after he was bombarded with selfie requests on Venice Beach boardwalk.

The heavyweight boxing legend headed out for some fresh sea breeze over the weekend after he was spotted having a nose in the shops.

Despite the ongoing threat of coronavirus in California, Tyson was not shy in standing next to fans and taking pictures.

The West Coast city has over 220,000 cases of the virus to date with that figure continuing to rise.

Figures show that cases have surged by over 7,400 in California on Monday – the biggest one day increase since tracking began.

According to TMZ, Tyson pulled down his face mask to pose for snaps with his trademark clenched fist in the air.

It remains unclear why Iron Mike was in the area but he appeared to be without a film crew or his entourage.

The 54-year-old, who celebrates his birthday today, looked in terrific shape after announcing he is on the comeback trail.

Tyson last fought in 2005 but is ready to step back into the ring for an exhibition bout for charity.

He has stunned fans with recent training videos that show off his blistering pace and punching power.

The former champion ballooned to a whopping 27st after retiring but has since lost 10st to get himself back into terrific shape.

Iron Mike has revealed he has had plenty of offers for an exhibition scrap including from his former heavyweight rivals.

Evander Holyfield has expressed his desire for a trilogy fight despite having a chunk of his ear bitten off in their infamous second fight.

Tyson Fury also revealed how Tyson’s team wanted a staggering £500million to fight the Gypsy King.

He told iFL TV: “There was talk of it…

“His people contacted me, me and Mike had a phonecall, it was all real but never materialised.

“Whoever was offering the comeback money to Mike offered us peanuts.

“Mike was talking about £500m figures but what came back to us on paper was a joke, it was crazy.

“I did have a $10m offer from ESPN to do the fight as an exhibition but I think everyone has moved on now.”
