And The Baddest Man on the Planet says he’d implement the body-heavy strategy he used for his two fights with Donovan ‘Razor’ Ruddock to take down The Gypsy King.

When asked how he fight the Brit, he told ES News: “Remember how I fought ‘Razor’ Ruddock in the first fight, that’s how we fight him.”

Despite being deep into his 50s, Tyson reckons he could dodge the 6ft 9in Brit’s blows.

He said: “I would like to hope so.”

Tyson is gearing up to return to the ring in February, although an opponent for his next outing has yet to be finalised.

And the American hopes to persuade Fury to have an exhibition with him with a good display in his next outing.

He said: “If this (Lennox Lewis) goes well, Imma push myself deeper.

“I don’t know, maybe, Tyson Fury, he told me, if I keep winning if I do good. That’s my buddy.”

YouTuber turned boxer Logan Paul is reportedly set to be Tyson’s opponent for his second exhibition.

When asked how he thinks he’d get on against The Maverick, Tyson laughed and said: “Maybe.

“I’m an old man, you know? I don’t know what I could do now.”

He added: “Anything is possible, you know.

“Because by doing this we have a great exponent of charities to give to so the charities win both ways.”

Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn is adamant the elder Paul brother shouldn’t set foot in the ring with the former undisputed heavyweight champ.

The Matchroom Boxing chief told The True Geordie: “I prefer that to Floyd and Logan. I thought that was absolutely a load of bs.

“I thought, ‘What?’ You got a pound for pound great again against a bloke that, I mean, not can’t fight.

“It was horrible, horrible to watch. Tyson and [Paul] it shouldn’t happen.

“But I would at least want to find out what would happen in that fight. I hold my hands up.”
