WATCH | Topless Mike Tyson flaunts new-look body in fresh comeback video

2020-05-21 15:37

Mike Tyson continues to look in phenomenal shape as he targets a return to the boxing ring, giving fans another terrifying glimpse of his age-defying power and speed.

The 53-year-old has started sparring again, announcing he was "back" and looking to take part in exhibition fights - with former world heavyweight champions Evander Holyfield and Shannon Briggs both mentioned as possible opponents.

"Iron Mike" sent a message to his Chinese fans on social media platform Weibo on Wednesday evening and now says he will be channelling the spirit of the country’s former dictator, Mao Tse Tung, when he returns to the ring.

"Hey I'm Mike Tyson, I’m on Weibo now and letting you know there’s a possibility I might come back," he said.

"But if I do, I’m going to fight with the spirit of Mao."

Tyson - who has a tattoo of Mao Tse Tung on his right shoulder - proceeded to unleash a furious barrage of punches, showing a speed and ferocity that looks almost on par with his peak years.

Toned arms, a tight chest and the hint of a six-pack stomach were on display as Tyson went through some moves at his Californian property. Only the greying beard was a hint of his true vintage.

His brutal display was eventually cut short, though, when his dog interrupted the workout - prompting Tyson to burst out laughing.

Tyson has lost over 140 pounds in the past few years, changing his diet and doing hours of cardio a day, while he has now started hitting the pads again as he teases a comeback.
