REAL Housewives of New Jersey husband Joe Giudice believes he can take on Mike Tyson and said he wouldn't be 'afraid' to fight him in a boxing match.
The disgraced RHONJ star had recently signed a celebrity boxing contract after losing weight.
In an interview with Too Fab, the 48-year-old hunk revealed he's not afraid to take anyone on in the ring, even the undisputed world heavyweight champion, Mike, 53.
Joe said: "Listen, I'll go for a few rounds with anybody. It doesn't matter to me. I'm not afraid of anybody. I don't care who it is … I'll get in the ring with anybody.
"I mean, if [Mike's] willing to go three rounds, I mean, why not? It would be fun, you know what I mean, it'd definitely be fun."
Despite Joe admitting it might be difficult to beat Mike, he wouldn't back down from the challenge.
He admitted: "I mean, listen, he's tough and that's his business.
"You know what I mean? Boxing is this business. That's his business. Whatever, it doesn't make a difference to me.
"I don't care who I really have to box. You know what I mean? It is what it is."
But how does Joe know he can possibly take on the boxing legend? He proved he could take on some hulk-like men while he was in prison from 2016-2019.
As he hopes to get a chance to fight Mike, Joe has been training to fight in the fall after training since arriving to Italy.
Celebrity Boxing promoter Damon Feldman told TMZ Joe's set for a fight on October 24th in the Bahamas.
There's no word yet on his opponent, but Damon said Joe is ready to take on anyone.
His paycheck will be based on the number of Pay-per-view purchases, and the match will be three 1 minute, 30-second rounds, according to TMZ.
Joe's often seen on social media working out and practicing martial arts, following losing weight when he served time.
He recently shared a video of himself doing push-ups while doing the splits to "motivate" himself in lockdown.
He told fans: "Just another day quarantined, let's make the best of it.
Joe's been keeping busy after his final legal appeal to return to the United States was denied.
He was deported to Italy last year after serving 41 months in jail for wire and bankruptcy fraud.
Joe said following the appeal failed: "As I proceeded with caution, hoping to win the judge’s sympathy, I was hoping to come home to my girls.
"Today, According to U.S immigration I was told I will never step foot in America again."
"My appeal was denied."
Joe was born in Lombardy and though he emigrated to the US as a child, he never obtained American citizenship.
After he and ex-wife Teresa both spent time behind bars for fraud in 2014, Joe was transferred to an ICE facility and then deported.
Joe and Teresa's children, Gia, Gabriella, Milania and Audriana, live in America with their mother.
