Big News: Bobby Lashley was asked to fight with Mike Tyson ? No Way!!

Although Bobby Lashley has been working full-time as a WWE wrestler for the last few years, he is not giving up on his fighting career.

Lashley revealed to Fightful Select in a recent interview that he was approached about a potential fight against Mike Tyson. Lashley noted that a ‘bare knuckle boxing company rep’ reached out to him about the possibility of whether or not he’d be interested in the boxing bout.

Lashley noted that a deal was in the feeling out process, but he said he’d love to do it, and it would be an honor to compete against him. Lashley said that Madison Square Garden was a possible venue.

Lashley also noted that he plans to fight again, but he had previously asked Vince McMahon about the possibility of fighting in the UFC, but McMahon had shot the pitch down. It’s unlikely WWE would’ve let him fight Tyson either.

Lashley’s last fight took place in October 2016, where he picked up a victory over Josh Appelt via submission.

Tyson came out of retirement to fight Roy Jones Jr. in an exhibition boxing bout in November 2020 that went to a split draw.

Lashley is slated to defend the US Title against Theory at SummerSlam this Saturday.
