HEAVYWEIGHT legends Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis will FIGHT each other in the near future, according to Michael Franzese.
Ex-mobster Franzese claims the two former world champs will meet in the ring for a second time for an exhibition bout in December.
Speaking on his Sit Down podcast, Franzese said: "He’s going to be fighting again in December.
"Lennox Lewis, and I can tell you he’s in great shape.”
Tyson and British legend Lewis had a heated rivalry and an infamous build-up to their blockbuster fight back in 2002.
But it was The Lion who stood tall after a stunning eighth-round knockout win over the American superstar.
And Franzese, a former capo [captain] of the Colombo crime family, claims their long-awaited rematch is not far away.
Tyson returned to boxing last year as he took on Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition fight that saw both fighters going through the full eight rounds, which led to a split-decision draw.

Iron Mike, whose last professional fight took place in 2005 when he lost to Kevin McBride, also stated that he would like to share the ring with British superstars Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua after facing Lewis.
Tyson recently said: "I just want to get the exhibition over Lennox Lewis and probably my next one will be with Joshua or Tyson.”
But The Baddest Man on the Planet also wants to rekindle his infamous feud with Evander Holyfield.
The 55-year-old bruiser wants to go one-on-one with Holyfield one last time before he officially wraps up his legendary career.
Tyson previously said: "I want Holyfield and I want Lennox Lewis this year.
“I want both of them, I want to get them both this year. I also want to box an exhibition with Tyson Fury.
“If I do that — even if I can get those two guys [Lewis and Holyfield], I’ll say, ‘This is a wrap, I’m just gonna live life'.
“And that’s just exhibitions. I’m gonna break all my professional true records with exhibitions.”
