Which Ip Man movie has Mike Tyson in it?

Mike Tyson has often appeared on the big screen. One such outing saw him in a fight sequence alongside Hong Kong martial arts actor Donnie Yen in Ip Man 3.

The film hit the big screens in 2015 and was rated 7.1 out of 10 on IMDb. Ip Man 3, upon release, earned $2,679,437 at the domestic box office and $154,621,517 at the international box office.

At a Shanghai-based film festival, Donnie Yen spoke about the experience of filming action scenes and sharing the screen with the former heavyweight boxing kingpin. He admitted to taking the scenes with “The Baddest Man on the Planet” extremely seriously:

“When I was in a scene with him, I had to remind myself that I had to be very careful. I dare not allow myself to think that I was shooting a scene for a movie. I had to treat it like a real fight on a ring with him and it was a matter of life and death. I couldn’t afford to be distracted in any way, otherwise it wouldn’t have been a knockout, it would have cost me my life.” , said Donnie Yen. (h/t: The Sun)

Can Mike Tyson return to the ring in early 2022 against Jake Paul

The YouTuber-turned-boxer, in an earlier Twitter post, revealed that Tyson was a name that was on his “boxing bucket list”:

My boxing to-do list:1) Canelo Alvarez2) Floyd Mayweather3) Mike Tyson4) Tyson Furry5) Dana White

However, with Jake Paul looking to take some time off from boxing, a fight against Tyson is currently the last thing on his mind. After Tyson locked horns with Roy Jones Jr. in an exhibition fight in November 2022, he claimed his business inside the squared circle was far from over.

During a conversation with The sun in October 2021, “Iron Mike” gave fans a glimpse of his homecoming.

He said:

“I’m going to have a comeback fight in February and we’re pretty skeptical about the opponent, but it’s going to be a really challenging opponent.”

Although his return to action is getting closer, Tyson and Co. has yet to offer any updates regarding the same or finalize an opponent.
