Former welterweight champion Ricky Hatton believes Mike Tyson's propose comeback into the rings might end up bad for the American.

The 53-year-old has been training heavily lately showing his speedy and dangerous uppercuts in a bid to grace four-round exhibition fights for charity.

Recently, Tyson Fury's father John sent a come-fight-me message to the former heavyweight champion - saying he could die to be in the rings with the baddest man on the planet.

According to SunSport, Tyson has been offered a rematch with Brit Danny Williams and Sonny Bill Williams.

However, Hatton, whose quest to come out of retirement in 2012 backfired after being inactive for three years has advised Tyson to stay retired.

The 41-year-old told iFL TV: "Everyone said 'Are you fighting Mike Tyson?' One thing I won’t be doing is fighting John Fury. John’s going for it, isn’t he?

Mike’s in a good place now. When he retired, he wasn’t in a good place. He was on treatment.

"Now he’s doing positive things, and he’s doing motivational speaking. He’s talking well and looking well. It’s one thing that you’re talking well and looking well, but you’re 53.

We all make comebacks because we have so much to improve. That’s why I came back because I felt like I had to redeem myself.

"But Mike has mentally got himself on track, not just physically on track. He’s looking better, talking better, and feeling better.

Now his body is right, and his head is right, why is he thinking comeback? I don’t get it. It would be a tragedy for him after he went through all those bad times, and got back on the straight and narrow to do himself some serious injury.

But with Mike making a comeback, I really hope he doesn’t. I think I’m not alone saying that."
