Mike Tyson will "roast" Ric Flair later this summer. 

As first reported by TMZ, Tyson has been announced for The Roast of Ric Flair on July 29. The event will take place from the Nashville Fairgrounds as part of Starrcast V. Flair's "last match" is scheduled for two days later on July 31 from the same venue. 

Diamond Dallas Page and Eric Bischoff are also confirmed for the roast. 

Flair and Tyson announced a business partnership back in March. The legendary boxer's company, Tyson 2.0, plans to market Flair-themed cannabis products in legal markets across the United States. 

“The last weekend in July is going to be Ric’s swan song in a professional wrestling ring, so what better way to send him off before his final match than giving him a proper roast,” Starrcast promoter Conrad Thompson said. “Ric's career has transcended professional wrestling and made him a pop culture icon. You've seen his influence everywhere from sports to hip hop. He's done it all, except get roasted by some of his dearest friends and the most talented comedians in the world. That all changes on July 29th.”
