Mike Tyson Shows Off Incredible Physique in Latest Comeback Video

3 Min Read


In recent video posted online, Mike Tyson displayed  his incredible physique and power ahead of his much talked about comeback.

The former 2-time heavyweight champion, 53, is contemplating a return to the ring and gave a nod to his fans in China on social media platform Weibo.

In the video, Iron Mike also compared himself to the country’s former dictator Chairman Mao.

He said: “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.”

The American flexed his arm and unleashed a dynamic avalanche  of punches in front of the camera.

However, the video was cut short when a fluffy white dog jumped up at him next to a swimming pool.

A third confrontation with Evander Holyfield has been talked about as Tyson’s comeback bout – their last fight seeing Iron Mike biting a chunk off his opponent’s ear in their 1997 rematch.

Tyson’s potential comeback has got the boxing world talking and while the likes of Dave Allen are against his return, former heavyweight David Haye has no qualms with a potential Tyson vs Holyfield third fight.

In a recent Haye told talkSPORT: “Although they might not be the guys they were 30 years ago, I don’t care, it’s still them, you’re going to see the names.

“You can still see they’ve got the same technique, they’re the same person, just not as fast. Same thing with boxers.

“Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield had two great fights, Holyfield came off best both times, I expect the same thing to happen again.

“But let them, if they wanna earn some money, if they wanna entertain people during lockdown, I’m all for it.

“What’s the worst that can happen? One of them gets knocked out. Well, they’ve spent their whole lives doing that anyway.

“That’s what they do, they’re both born fighters, that’s what they’re here for.

“They’ve both been put on this Earth to fight people and that’s what they’ve done their whole lives.

“So why not let someone like Mike Tyson or Evander Holyfield jump back in and do it.

“As long as they pass the medical, as long as they’re physically healthy enough to do it. As long as they pass the brain scan and the blood tests.

“As long as everyone’s healthy to get in there and do it, crack on. What else are you gonna do?”

Shannon Briggs, 48, is another tipped opponent to fight Tyson.
