The site reports that Tyson was offered $20 million by the company’s president, David Feldman. Tyson would be able to choose an opponent who was already signed to the promotion. Multiple UFC fighters are already a part of the BKFC.
The offer comes following videos that show Tyson, who is now 53 years old, in shape and training hard. Feldman told MMA Fighting that the videos shared by the athlete directly impacted the company’s choice to reach out to him.
Tyson hasn’t fought in fifteen years. His last fight led to a loss against Kevin McBride after six rounds. Tyson retired after the defeat.
There are no reports on a response from Tyson at this point. The Jiu-Jitsu Times will provide updates as they become available.
