Fighting on SBN podcast, Tommy said: ‘I don’t know (what’s

happening), that’s what I pay my lawyers for and my legal

team every day, they’re sorting it and I said please get this

resolved as soon as possible and that’s where I’ve left it at

the moment.

‘I’m hoping it gets resolved asap because I want to come to America not just for boxing and of course for the big one to get this fight over the line but if it doesn’t get resolved for a long time I can’t speak on that on how long this is going to take… But let’s say it’s a long time, let’s get it on over here. I’ll fight that man wherever, I’m not bothered. I am ready to go.’

Tyson, who was photographed in Dubai in February this year with the US sanctioned Kinahan, said: ‘Because I had my picture taken with a man it doesn’t make me a criminal.

‘I’m just a boxer. There could be a criminal in this building.’
