Mike Tyson is getting back into boxing.


These babes can't get enough ringside action.

The former “Baddest Man on the Planet” is starting his own promotional company, according to ESPN.

"I thought about it, I talked to my wife [Kiki] about it and we thought we wanted to do it," Tyson said in an interview with ESPN2's "Friday Night Fights" about his Iron Mike Productions. "I feel so awesome to be involved with the game again. That just feels so awesome."

Tyson, who hasn’t fought since losing to Kevin McBride in 2005, hammered out a deal with Florida-based promotional company Acquinity Sports and changed its name to Iron Mike Productions. The company’s first card will take place Aug. 23, headlined by junior-lightweight champion Argenis Mendez defending his title against Arash Usmanee.
