Mike Tyson has showed off his phenomenal shape ahead of his highly-anticipated return to the ring.
The former undisputed heavyweight champion has proved he still has the power and speed, with his training footage going viral online, as he looks to compete in non-professional bouts for charity.
“That’s all I’ve been doing, getting into shape. I feel unstoppable now. I feel the same again. The gods of war ignited my ego and want me to go to war again. Imagine if I went out there and fought and I could help all these people we talked about,” Tyson said on a Facebook live session by #PlayApartTogether.
The 53-year old legend, who last competed in the squared circle in 2005, will not be short of options when he makes a sensational boxing return, with the Bareknuckle Fighting Championship giving him a lucrative offer to compete in bare knuckle boxing while a trilogy fight with old rival, Evander Holyfield, is currently on the works.
On Thursday, Tyson took to social media to flex his incredible physique before unleashing a flurry of punches.
“Hey I’m Mike Tyson, I’m on Weibo now. I’ll let you know, there’s a possibility I might come back, but if I do I’m going to fight with the spirit of Mao,” he said.
