This superhero movie actor wants to fight Mike Tyson

Don’t worry, your future Marvel Cinematic Universe or DC Extended Universe movies aren’t in jeopardy because Tyson bit the star’s ear off. The actor in question is Michael Jai White, whom you might remember from his role as the titular hellion superhero in 1997’s Spawn, as well as a lifetime of delightful action and B-movie roles in shows and movies like Netflix’s Welcome to Sudden Death. He also appears in a little movie called The Dark Knight, in which he plays crime boss Gambol, the first recipient of the Joker’s (Heath Ledger) “Do you know how I got these scars?” speech. Oh, and per Empire, he’s also a legitimate hand-to-hand combat expert with seven black belts in increasingly difficult-to-pronounce martial arts. There is that.

White — who at 53 is a year and a half younger than Tyson and even portrayed the boxer in 1995’s Tyson TV movie — revealed that he’d happily climb in the ring for free when Vlad TV asked about his potential willingness to face Tyson in a boxing bout. The actor couldn’t suppress a smile when he heard the question, and his answer was excited to say the least. “Of course! To box Mike Tyson, I would love that. I would love that,” White enthused. “Are you kidding me? Why would I not do something like that?”

Since submissions and kicks aren’t allowed in boxing, you’d expect that a martial artist would be at a distinct disadvantage against one of the greatest boxers of all time. Even so, the actor was confident that he could win — though he’d be in it purely for the experience, so a humiliating loss would be fine, too. “If he’d whoop my a**, I would just laugh at the whole scenario.”
