Former undisputed champion, Tyson has been back in training for some time working towards a return to the ring in a charity bout.
53 year old Tyson had been offered a million dollars to fight a former rugby league player in Australia, with Sonny Bill Williams one of those mentioned.
Evander Holyfield was reportedly also interested, but it appears two time world champion Briggs has landed a deal.
48 year old Briggs made this announcement on Instagram. "I just talked to Mike Tyson, it's going down, me and Mike. We're going to make it happen, it's official."
