Ex-mobster claims Mike Tyson and foe Lennox Lewis will fight again "in December"

Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis will meet in a boxing ring one last time for an exhibition bout in December, according to ex-mobster Michael Franzese.

Tyson and Lewis had an infamous heated build to their last bout, in 2002, which saw the Lion stood tall in the eight after a spectacular knockout.

Their original fight had to be moved after the state of Nevada refused to give Tyson a license following a press conference brawl.

And Franzese, the former capo of the Colombo crime family, has claimed that their rematch may be ready to be staged in December – almost 20 years after their first encounter.

Franzese, who was appearing on the Sit Down podcast, said: "He’s going to be fighting again in December.

"Lennox Lewis, and I can tell you he’s in great shape."

While Tyson, himself, has eyes beyond the potential bout with Lewis, he told Franzese on the ex-mobster's YouTube channel: "I just want to get the exhibition over Lennox Lewis."

"And [then] probably my next one will be with [Anthony] Joshua or Tyson [Fury]."

Iron Mike returned to ring for an exhibition bout against Roy Jones Jr, which saw both fighters go the full eight rounds.

Tyson has previously stated: "I want Holyfield and I want Lennox Lewis this year.

“I want both of them, I want to get them both this year. I also want to box an exhibition with Tyson Fury.

“If I do that — even if I can get those two guys [Lewis and Holyfield], I’ll say, ‘This is a wrap, I’m just gonna live life'."
