    WBC chief Sulaiman confirmed his support for Mike's return to the ring:
    -Tyson is a special case, really. And if "the worst man on the planet" fights for a good cause or for charity, the WBC will make sure to comply with any request. In his best times he could knock anyone out with one punch. It is still a myth and we will support it.- Sulaiman told Stats Perform. -I don't want speculation. A performance is one thing, but if he intends to really fight before being authorized to do so he will have to follow the Wbc protocol which applies to anyone who asks for a license. It will be an accurate process but I will not kill a dream.

    If the dream is to be classified, we will examine the application and classify it. A legend like Sugar Ray Leonard, who had been inactive for six years (1991-1997), was also allowed to fight. The case of Tyson, however, is different, it has been gone for many years, but I fully agree with Mike Tyson and what he wants to do. I believe his initiative will bring entertainment and he will do it for charity. He wants to serve the world in this difficult time
    We continue to be amazed, perhaps, we speak of an "honorific classification" because otherwise ..
    Thoughts?

    Imagine he came back and knocked out whoever is holding the green belt, it would automatically make him the best fighter of all time.

    What would it mean for Fury to beat the shell of Tyson, he won but at what cost?

    How can Iron Mike be ranked after a charity exhibition 4 rd'er ?!?!

    Those who run the ABC's are ridiculously out of touch with reality

    They make rules up as they see fit.

    The Whyte-WBC situation is a joke

    Canelo-WBC relationship is too cosy

    The only ranked guy I wouldn't mind Tyson fighting is Oquendo.

    I hope after this corona virus we see the WBC going into bankruptcy because that slimebag Suliaman is an absolute disgrace.

    I got to give it to whoever Mike hiring for this marketing campaign. He has a huge number of boxing fans and casuals eating out of the palm of his hand on the weight of a few very short training clips.

    Hahahahahahha

    In any sane sport I'd say those quotes were made up for a satirical post but Sulaiman is so shameless that anything, however witless, could be a genuine quote.

    Next step is a special belt being made and Tyson is fed a bum of the week thanks to the wbc random ranking generator

    Sulaimán would put his mother in the rankings if he thought it would make him money.
