Mike Tyson will not have any one belittle his return to the ring and on Monday uploaded a footage of himself sparring fiercely.
The 53-year-old does not seem to have lost the raw power which saw him rack up 44 knockouts in 50 fights.
“Anything is possible when you are smart about it. Train Smart. Recover Smarter,” the video is captioned.
At the end of the explosive clip, Tyson remarked “I’m back!
The legendary boxer turns 54 years old in June, and he hasn’t participated in a licensed fight in roughly 15 years.
In April, he said he wanted to participate in exhibition contests to raise funds for charitable causes.
“I’ve been hitting the mitts for the last week,” he told rapper T.I. last month on an Instagram Live Story about a potential boxing comeback.
“That’s been tough, my body is really jacked up and really sore from hitting the mitts.
“I’ve been working out, I’ve been trying to get in the ring, I think I’m going to box some exhibitions and get in shape.
“I want to go to the gym and get in shape to be able to box three or four-round exhibitions for some charities and stuff.
“Some charity exhibitions, make some money, help some homeless and drug-affected motherf***er like me.
“I do two hours on cardio, I do the bike and the treadmill for an hour, then I do some light weights, 300, 250 reps.
“Then I start my day with the boxing thing, I go in there and hit the mitts, 30 minutes, 25 minutes, start getting in better condition.
“I’m starting to put those combinations together. I’m in pain, I feel like three guys kicked the s*** out of me.”
Major League Wrestling and Australian rugby stars have since reached out to him about potential match-ups.
He has been called out by Tyson Fury’s dad, John, and his former rival Evander Holyfield.
Tyson lost to Holyfield in back-to-back matches in 1996 and 1997, with the second fight being remembered for the former biting the latter’s ear.
