Boxing legend Mike Tyson has ruled out a return to the ring -- because he has fallen out of love with the sport.

The former undisputed world heavyweight champion hung up his gloves in 2005 but reports over the weekend suggested he was eyeing a comeback at the age of 43.

But Tyson, nicknamed Iron Mike during his 1980s heyday, has spoken out to dismiss the rumours.

He tells Sky News, "I'm 43 years old and I'm fat and I'm overweight. Who am I going to fight? No, I am not interested in doing that. I'm not going to be successful. I'm just not that guy. I don't love this stuff any more."
