Mike Tyson was seen out and about in Italy on Tuesday morning as he took a break from filming a new movie to pose for pictures with fans.

Details of the former world heavyweight champion’s new project are scarce but it’s claimed the movie is focused on a mysterious artist named ‘Bunny Man’.

It’s also unclear what role Tyson has been cast in but the new movie continues his foray into the Hollywood world.

Tyson emerged from his hotel in Turin on Tuesday morning carrying a duffle bag. He was flanked by security to help him navigate the crowd that was waiting for him. 

Tyson’s loyal fans were waiting armed with their phones as they tried to get a picture with him and he was only too happy to oblige.

Tyson has had a number of film roles since ending his boxing career. The most famous was alongside Bradley Cooper in two films in ‘The Hangover’ series.

He was last in the ring in November 2020 when he had a controversial exhibition match with Roy Jones Jr.  

Last week, the boxing legend rubbished claims that he’s in talks with UFC cult hero Mark Hunt for a Saudi Arabia showdown.

Hunt, who won 13 of his 27 fights in the cage, has turned to boxing in his twilight years and most recently shocked Sonny Bill Williams with a fourth round knockout in November 2022.

The Sydney-based heavyweight disclosed plans to compete in bare knuckle boxing before taking on boxing legend Tyson to round off his career.

Hunt claimed that talks over a fight against Tyson are at a very early stage, but a source from Iron Mike’s camp told Daily Mail Australia that no talks have taken place with Hunt or his management.

The source added that the former heavyweight champion is not interested in a fight against the 49-year-old now or in the future.
