Former undisputed junior welterweight champion Kostya Tszyu told the AAP that he is seriously considering a recent offer to return to the ring and start a comeback at age 38. Tszyu has not fought since being stopped by Ricky Hatton in 2005.

He tells the media outlet that he's received numerous offers to return, but the figures have never been enough to tempt him back into the ring. But, recently some Russian investors made him an offer that he might not refuse. The offer is not concrete, but he says it certainly enough to make him put on the gloves again.

"I'm realistically saying it's still a big chance but it would need to be huge motivation," Tszyu said. "I would never fight for money but it would need to be a big number. Some Russians offered me ridiculous money, bigger than I've ever had, but not anything concrete."
