Mike Tyson is tough, but is he tough enough to take on a shark?
Discovery’s Shark Week is coming back next month and things are kicking off with the new special “Tyson vs. Jaws: Rumble on the Reef”.
Who you got in @MikeTyson vs. Jaws?

In the teaser for the special, airing August 9, Tyson shows his strength by tossing a shark cage and breaking a surfboard with his fist.
“I took on this challenger to overcome fears I still deal with in life,” Tyson told Entertainment Weekly. “I equate this with overcoming my fear of getting back into the ring at 54 years old. I learned from this experience doing Shark Week that whatever intimidates me, I am still able to step up to the challenge of overcoming anything that would prevent me from accomplishing my life’s mission of reaching my highest potential in life and bringing me closer to God.”
Shark Week 2020 will span eight days, with more than 20 hours of new programming.
