“Live every week like it’s Shark Week.”
That is a quote from the character Tracy Jordan on “30 Rock.” But it also applies to Mike Tyson and his latest opponent in the ring.
The former boxer will glove up for a match with America’s favorite fish in a new special on the Discovery Channel, “Tyson vs. Jaws: Rumble On the Reef,” which will air Aug. 9 during the network’s famed Shark Week.
The face-tatted Tyson will “square off” against a shark “in the name of research,” reports Entertainment Weekly. No sharks were harmed while making the show, and it is not explicitly clear how Tyson and the aquatic animal will interact.
“I took on this challenger to overcome fears I still deal with in life,” the heavyweight champ said in a statement. “I equate this with overcoming my fear of getting back into the ring at 54 years old.”
Apparently the experience was spiritual for him. “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,” he said.
Legendary boxing mike man Mike Buffer will be the announcer for the special.
“Someone’s going to get bit,” says Tyson, smiling into the camera in a promo.
Tyson’s water fight kicks off the 32nd Shark Week. This year, 20 hours of fin-filled footage will air over eight days from Aug. 9 to 16.
