“Plenty of people would step in even on short notice.”

A third stated: “Cancel the fight man what are u doing the money ain’t worth it.”

A fourth opined: “Doesn’t take away from the fact you’re literally fighting a senior citizen with health problems & you some how think it makes you look like you’ve accomplished something.”

A fifth said: “Idgaf I want mike to do a mri/cat scan/x-ray/ekg literally every medical checks before the fight because we got to much love for Mike Tyson!”

And a sixth simply said: “You should be ashamed.”

Tyson has had a health scare in the past.
