Wrestling legend Chris Jericho has expressed an interest in fighting former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson in a boxing match

The AEW star, more recently synonymous with his catchphrase “a little bubbly”, previously had beef in a script fight with Tyson

This time, Jericho says he would be ready for an exhibit inside the square circle – possibly after Tyson Roy Jones Jr

During an interview with Court Bauer, Y2J stated that there had been contact between both parties

“Earlier this year when we had that little confrontation with Tyson It may or may not happen,” he said, “Who really knows? But they said, “Mike really wants to do something. What are you going to do? “

“I said, ‘Anyway let’s have a match, do you want to have a boxing match? I’m going to box Mike Tyson How bad can I get beaten up by Mike Tyson, what’s worse than taking stiff shots from all of these guys I’ve been beaten up by over the years? ”

When asked if he could possibly shoot one of Mike Tyson’s full force shots in the face, Jericho thought about how Floyd Mayweather had performed in WWE back in 2008

Mayweather gave Big Show an accidental slap in the chops during Wrestlemania XXIV All the scripts at that time

“You can hit me, I’ll be fine, I’ll be fine I remember when the Big Show had that with Floyd Mayweather

“He told me that Mayweather hit him and Mayweather broke his nose and Show said,” I broke my nose less, “explained the veteran

In just six days, Mike Tyson will be in a pay-per-view extravaganza against Jones Jr Fighting that could mark the start of a spate of retired champions returning

Should “The Baddest Man on the Planet” win and secure big numbers, those who have not been in the sport for some time and need a payday to get the block stand in line

“Iron” Mike founded a “Legends Only League” “It’s not just for boxers, but for all sports stars who want to compete on PPV”

NBA Hall of Famer Michael Jordan has already been named as the next known headliner It remains to be seen who exactly will register
