Former WBA world heavyweight champion David Haye has no problem with the potential ring return of Mike Tyson - as long as the former undisputed heavyweight champion is not fighting against younger fighters in his comeback and urged him to taking on boxers his own age.
Haye thinks the 53-year-old Tyson, inactive since 2005 when he was stopped by journeyman Kevin McBride, will get seriously hurt if he decides to step into the ring against an active, younger fighter.
Since announcing his intention to come back to the sport several weeks ago, there has been mounting speculation regarding his potential opponent.
Countless names have been mentioned - including Evander Holyfield, Shannon Briggs and even current WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
Tyson wants to take part in a few exhibition fights to raise money for charity.
"I have no issue with Mike Tyson jumping back in the ring, as long as it's with someone else of a similar age,” Haye said to The Sun.
"I don't mind the Holyfield fight, I don't mind Riddick Bowe, Herbie Hide, let's dig out these old guys if they want a little fight for charity. But let's not do it over 12 three-minute rounds, lets do it over six rounds. They are still the same fighters just not as fast and explosive. You can still say you watched it. As long as they keep it among themselves. I don't like the thought of a young fighter taking on a fighter who is way past their best.
"They are so much more receptive to receive an injury. I would never like to see someone like Anthony Joshua or Tyson Fury fighting a guy in his 50s, it's just horrible, it wouldn't be nice. They would get money, but there is potential to get badly hurt. A prime Mike Tyson against anybody, but that Tyson is 30 years away from us."
