Mike Tyson Returns to the Ring

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.

15 Best Quotes By Rocky Balboa That Will Get You Back on Your Feet

//

It is scientifically impossible to hear eye of the Tiger and not think about Rocky Balboa. The Italian Stallion came from nothing. He started out as a leg breaker or debt collector for a local loan shark Anthony Gazzo, but his ambition is in boxing. When he finally gets a chance to step into the ring with the world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, Rocky shows that he has got what it takes. That is how the story of Rocky begins. With his old coach Mickey and faithful Polly in his corner, Balboa goes on to become a legend.

Many of us have grown up with Rocky, watching him fight his way from suburbs of Philadelphia to the world heavyweight championship. He never quits, even when his body is completely broken. Even when Micky dies, he finds the will to carry on and take the fight to Clubber Lang (played by Mr. T) and takes his belt back. When Apollo is killed in the ring by Ivan Drago, Rocky uses his rage as fuel and travels to Russia to beat Soviet champion in front of his home crowd. As we learned in the latest Creed movie, that fight comes back to haunt both him and Adonis, as Drago’s son tries to follow in his father’s footsteps.

Rocky never claims he is the smartest or strongest guy in the room and that is one of the reasons we love him. He is unpretentious and humble, yet he plows on through life with a will of steel. As he goes, he drops bits of wisdom we all can benefit from. Here are some of our favorite ones.

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”

“Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!”

“But to beat me, he’s going to have to kill me. And to kill me, he’s gonna have to have the heart to stand in front of me. And to do that, he’s got to be willing to die himself.”

“I am not the richest, smartest or most talented person in the world, but I succeed because I keep going and going and going.”

“But you gotta be willing to take the hits. And not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody!”
