Hollywood star Michael Jai White agrees to fight Mike Tyson for FREE and insists bout 'can happen next week'
HOLLYWOOD star Michael Jai White portrayed Mike Tyson in the 1995 HBO movie about the boxer… and now he wants to fight him.
The 53-year-old actor – who took up the starring role for the biopic 'Tyson' – has even suggested he would beat the Baddest Man on the Planet.
Known for his role as Gambol in The Dark Knight, Al Simmons in Spawn and Jax Briggs in Mortal Kombat: Legacy, the American has stated he is up for a new challenge.
White boasts an impressive background in martial arts having first started Jujutsu at the age of seven, but he has revealed he is keen to try his hand inside the boxing ring.
Speaking to VladTV, White was asked whether he would be willing to compete against Tyson, to which he said: "Of course.
"To box Mike Tyson, I would love that. Are you kidding me? Why would I not do something like that."
When asked about what the outcome of the bout would be, he added: "Of course, I think I would win.
"If [Tyson] he whooped my a**, I would [just] laugh at the whole scenario."
White then insisted he would be willing to pit his wits against the former world heavyweight champion for free.
He also claimed that the exhibition contest could happen as early as next week.

He remarked: "Of course, I’ll do it for free. That’s my point man. It’s not about somebody else’s entertainment.
"That’s why I don’t post this stuff [sparring sessions] with Jon Jones or me and a lot of fighters. I don’t post that stuff. This is something that can happen next week."
Tyson – who drew in his comeback fight against Jones in November – confirmed earlier this month that he will box again this year.
And he has also teased a potential switch into MMA after footage emerged of him sparring inside the octagon.
The 54-year-old has previously described UFC as 'sexy', but insisted the money in boxing is better.
