Bob Sapp says he will fight Mike Tyson anytime, anywhere. The 29-year-old former NFL lineman held a press conference Monday to let the world know he’s ready to take on the 37-year-old former heavyweight boxing champion.

“I’m confident I could beat him,” Sapp told reporters.

“I know he wants to fight me and all we have to do now is work out the rules.”

Sapp and Tyson engaged in a heated verbal exchange on Aug. 15 in Las Vegas after Sapp defeated American Kimo Leopoldo in the K-1 World GP 2003.

Tyson made his way into the ring for Sapp’s post-bout celebration and the two had to be separated.

On Aug. 23, Tyson signed a deal with Japan’s K-1 organization.
