Benzema, 32, said boxer Mike Tyson is one of his biggest idols and that he would be "up for it" when he decides it's time to hang his boots up. 

"I get a thrill out of combat sports, and I love to train," the Real Madrid striker said. "Once my football career is over, why don't I train with you (Ezbiri) for six months?

"Then, if you think I am ready for a fight, there's no problem as far as I'm concerned. I swear to God, I'm up for it." 

On Tyson, he added: "It's his strength. I have always admired his presence, his determination and attitude. Besides, he has come from nowhere."

Benzema's goals helped Real Madrid win their first La Liga title since 2017 this season. He is currently with Zinedine Zidane's side preparing for Friday's Champions League game against Manchester City.
