Belfort, Tyson link up for workout in Florida

Vitor “The Phenom” Belfort and “Iron” Mike Tyson have a lot of things in common. 

For one, they are two of the youngest World Champions in their respective sports, with Belfort winning his World Title at age 19 and Tyson winning his at age 20.  

They also share a love of professional wrestling, evident when they met in All Elite Wrestling’s Double or Nothing pay-per-view on Saturday, 23 May, in Jacksonville, Florida. 

So it only made sense for the two to link up after the event and workout together. 


The competitive drive between the two men is still seen today. Belfort signed with ONE Championship last year, marking his return to Asia for the first time since competing in the now-defunct Pride FC in the early 2000s. 

Belfort has a good list of potential opponents in The Home Of Martial Arts and fans are anticipating his debut in the organization. 

Tyson, on the other hand, is making waves on social media, teasing a potential return to the boxing ring. 

The charismatic heavyweight hung up his gloves in 2005 but has looked in great shape recently. 

Now at age 53, Tyson may return to the sport he dominated one last time to raise funds for charities who have been helping battle COVID-19.
