Washed up ear aficionado “Iron” Mike Tyson is pulling on the gloves for a return to the ring from his ’05 retirement. His opponent? Welsh crooner Tom Jones! Yeah, the very same pop vet that got Carlton’s limbs flailing. Tyson spoke excitedly:
It’s just going to be marvelous. Tom Jones is going to be one of the boxers. What if I get beat? Who knows – I might even enjoy it! I’m not interested in smashing people. This is gonna be fun.
Fun or not, it’s definitely Jones’s strangest collaboration since covering the Talking Heads with The Cardigans. But at least in that one we got to watch Nina, rather than a tattoo-faced cannibal. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
