In November, the once-undisputed heavyweight champion is scheduled to make a contentious comeback to the ring against Jake Paul

However, the 57-year-old has said that he would love to face Joshua in the ring in a charity match.

Tyson and Paul were scheduled to square off on July 20, but due to the former's medical situation, their Texas match was postponed until November 15.

In March, Joshua made his most recent appearance in the ring when he decisively defeated Francis Ngannou, the former heavyweight champion of the UFC, in their Saudi Arabian bout.
