In a recent video, Shannon Briggs has claimed that he reached a verbal agreement to fight fellow former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson.

Neither Tyson or any of his team members have confirmed Briggs' claims.

“I just talked to Mike Tyson, it’s going down, me and Mike, we’re going to make it happen, it’s official, you’re going to see it happen, Brownsville versus Brownsville. Me and Tyson are going to lace up the gloves, we’re going to rumble, rumble in the jungle. We’re going to let our fist do the talking," Briggs said.

In the last few weeks, Tyson has been hinting at the possibility of a ring return, at least on the level of a few exhibitions to raise money for charity.

Several training clips have gone viral, with Tyson showcasing his speed and power at 53-years-old.

The boxer who for for years was regarded as the "baddest man on the planet" has been retired since 2005.

Former two division world champion Ricky Hatton is very familiar with making a comeback to the ring after being retired.

Hatton retired in 2009 after a brutal knockout loss to Manny Pacquiao.

In 2012, Hatton was able to overcome a lot of his demons outside the ring and got himself in proper form. He made an attempt at a comeback, and once again retired after getting knocked out by Vyacheslav Senchenko.

He doesn't see any good from staging a fight between Tyson and Briggs.

“Mike is probably one of the most high-profile people that has gone down in a hump but recently he has lost weight he looks in great shape and he is in a great mental place," Hatton told Talk Sport.

“He has been doing motivational speeches and he has worked harder than anyone to get himself mentally and physically back on track, but why does he feel the need to go and prove himself in the boxing ring again, I don’t get it. We all have reasons to make a comeback and I felt I had a lot to prove and that I let a lot of people down, and Mike looks like he has got himself back on track so why does he need one more fight to do it.

“Both Shannon and Tyson have seen better days so I cant see any good coming out of it personally.”
