Mike Tyson attends Jaguars game in teal No. 1 jersey

Tyson walked into TIAA Bank Field before the game wearing a teal No. 1 Jaguars jersey. He drew quite a crowd:

The former heavyweight champion boxer is now 53. He has been involved in several media projects in recent years, including acting in a one-man comedy show, writing books, appearing in movies, songs and commercials, and working for entertainment companies.
There is actually a pro football player in the league named Mike Tyson who played 10 games last season for Houston, but he is unrelated to the former champion boxer. When you have Iron Mike on your sideline, you’re guaranteed to put up a fight and come out swinging.
