Mike Tyson is in full training and preparing to have some of the most sensational return to boxing ever. It looks like the legendary Tyson is going to be in a ring once again in late 2020. At the same time, Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury don’t need to be stressed out since Tyson is only going to appear in a 4-round charity match.
Just to remind you, “Iron Mike” finished his professional career back in 2005 after a long and successful career, which was violent and glittering at times. Now a 53-year-old Tyson says that he is in the best shape he’s ever been and frequently posts some of his training on his social media accounts. At first, people were thinking that these are just aesthetic training.
However, after the information that he will compete in a match, the social media got lit on fire. Moreover, Tyson addressed this match in an interview where he appeared alongside a rapper T.I. He stated that he began his training about a week ago. Also, he said that it has been hard for him to start training all over again after the big pause. He has a big motive since he is going to appear in the ring in late 2020.
He wants to appear on this charity at least for a couple of rounds. Moreover, he states that he would like to help some other guys that had the same fate as him. His life story is pretty well known, he bankrupted, faced drug addiction, and was homeless.
When it comes to the training itself, he talked about his program. He does about two hours of cardio, rides the bike, and exercise a treadmill for about an hour. After that, he performs some weight lifting. But his day starts with boxing, he hits mitts for about half an hour every morning. According to him, his form started improving pretty fast and he now combines several strikes in one training.
Naturally, since he is not young anymore, he has a difficult time with this. He stated that after training he feels like three guys beat him really bad. There was a time where Mike was the best in the world. He was only 20 years old when he beat Trevor Berbick in a match that was deciding the next world heavyweight championship. This was the match that made him one of the best ever.
When you look at the numbers in his career, he won 44 out of 50 matches. According to the New Yorker, he would be the absolute best one in today’s boxing. We got a word from his old trainer, who insisted that Mike could beat the best one in the world even today if he would have proper training and a proper diet to follow.
