The photograph showed Tyson and Stallone jovially posing for a picture. While the caption mentioned that the picture is from 2000. It can is speculated that the picture might have been taken earlier. Stallone had previously contacted Tyson for a role in one of the Rocky movies. However, he later had a change of mind about getting into the ring with ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’. Stallone even hilariously mentioned that he was ‘too young to die’.

Check out the photo below:

Meanwhile, Tyson, wanted to get into the ring with Stallone. And was even given a place in the audience while the reel boxing match took place. But Tyson did not take up his offer.

Stallone also had a few choice words to say about Tyson ahead of his fight against Roy Jones Jr. He said:

“You’re talking about, I mean – everyone knows it, Mike Tyson is a wrecking ball.”

A lot of fans were quick to point out that the photo was not from 2000. Geovani Opry Sherow said, “Not ‘2000!’ Not even close!!”

Klaus Bolvig mentioned:

 “This is further back! Mike had this notorious golden smile. So Around 1990.”

Similarly, Raheim Bazile stated:

“Why on earth would they think this is 2000.”

Meanwhile, a few users spoke about the duo’s iconic status. Sander Al said:

“The greatest Boxer in real life with the greatest boxer in film history.”
