Tyson’s involvement in the promotional aspect of the sport he once ruled comes as a partner in the former Acquinity Sports, a Deerfield Beach, Fla.-based promotional company that has been around for about two years and has a growing stable of talent.

In a 2013 interview with ESPN, Tyson said that his main goal is to help the fighters while also making a few dollars. “I learned, if I was ever a promoter, I wouldn’t be like these guys, the guys that promoted me,” Tyson said, speaking mainly about Don King. “I would make sure that these fighters — it’s all about the fighters. I don’t do this because I want to make a lot of money. Everybody’s trying to make a buck. I want to see successful fighters and great fighters, and I would hate to see fighters end up like me, when I finished fighting. I’m just one of the very fortunate ones, and I’m very grateful for that. I would never like them to be like me.”
