Mike Tyson has once again showed he is ready to return into the rings as he released more footage of himself in a ferocious training session in the gym.
He has continued to train ahead of his potential heavyweight return and the former undisputed heavyweight champion appears to be in frightening form in the gym.
Mike Tyson may be in his 50s, but the self-proclaimed 'Baddest Man on the Planet' still packs a ferocious punch.
‘Iron’ Mike is plotting a sensational return to boxing 15 years since he called time on his glittering heavyweight career, targeting exhibition bouts against former rivals Evander Holyfield and Shannon Briggs.
The 54-year-old was earlier touted to participate in an exhibition tourney in Australia but the American seems to have shut down the idea.
He felt it would be a mockery of the sport to fight a non-bonafide boxer, and would only faceoff with a boxer if he had to come out of retirement.
Sport Bible quoting SunSport reported that a source close to the legend claims: "Mike has ruled out the prospect of the exhibition bout in Australia because he does not want to fight a cross-over athlete.
Boxing promoter Brian Amatruda is reportedly ready to offer as much as $1million to former heavyweight champion Tyson to come out of retirement and fight either ex-rugby league players Barry Hall and Paul Gallen or All Blacks legend Sonny Williams.
Tyson has been training with MMA mastermind Rafael Cordeiro for a couple of weeks now. Cordeiro who is the head coach at Kings MMA in California has stated that it will take another five months for Tyson to be in shape for a bout, however an offer is already on the cards.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Mike Tyson is regarded as one of the greatest boxers ever to have graced the rings alongside 'Money Man’ Floyd Mayweather who were friends until 2001.
Although both legends appear to have maximum respect for each other, in reality there are signs that all is not well with the union of the stars.
It was gathered that a long-term hatred exists between the duo and according to Sportsmail, the problems started in 2001 when the pair disliked each other.
