Welsh pop veteran Tom Jones will be stepping into the boxing ring with Mike Tyson, in a celebrity bout planned for later this year.
The former world heavyweight champion, nicknamed Iron Mike, revealed his surprising opponent shortly after expressing a desire to also take on female Texan boxing champ Ann Wolfe.
The fights are part of a series of high profile charity events designed to propel the boxer back into the limelight.
Tyson, who served three years in jail for a **** conviction in 1992 and once bit off part of boxer Evander Holyfield's ear, retired from boxing in June 2005.
He says: "It's just going to be marvellous. 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."
