Mike Tyson: My Kids Think I Should Sit My Old Ass Down!

Former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson admits that his children would rather see him sitting on the couch and enjoying retirement.

Tyson, who has eight children, has been inactive since getting stopped by journeyman Kevin McBride in 2005.

But Tyson, 54-years-old, will finally break that retirement on September 12, when he returns to the ring against 51-year-old former four division world champion Roy Jones Jr.

Their contest will be a regulated eight round exhibition fight, taking place in Los Angeles, California.

Tyson believes that he's in very good shape and ready to fight - but his children feel that he's too old to step back in the ring.

"My kids think I should sit my old ass down," Tyson said on The Jimmy Fallon Show.

"But what do they know? I'm very confident. They don't know how to fight, neither one of my kids can beat me in a fight, so what are they talking about?"

One of Tyson's former trainers, Jeff Fenech, stated in a recent interview that he believes Tyson is still fully capable, even at his advanced age, of beating current top heavyweights like Deontay Wilder.

 "Boxing's not the same now. I'd guarantee that if Mike Tyson trained for six weeks, he'd knock Wilder out in a minute. He would hit them. If these guys are getting knocked out by Tyson Fury - who's a great fighter, but not a huge puncher - Tyson would kill these guys," Fenech said to Sporting News.

"They're not on the same level today. Mike today, I reckon if he trained he could still beat these guys. Fury's got these other skills, but Deontay Wilder's got a punch and nothing else. If you punch him, it's over. And Mike don't miss."
