Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson has intensified preparations for his epic return to the boxing rings later this year.
The 54-year-old was spotted running by the roadside ahead of his fight against Roy Jones Jr, on November 28.
He however revealed that he has shed a lot of weight, but insisted that he is not done with his workout just yet.
Meanwhile, a fan who saw the legendary boxer train by the road recorded the moment while in a car.

The unidentified fan was not just stunned, the supporter reached out to the icon and the boxer waved back in return.
After retiring in 2005, Tyson is getting ready to return to the rings for the first time in over 15 years.
Tyson kicked off his journey back into the rings earlier this year after sharing his training videos on social media.
He will face the former four-division champion, Jones, in an eight-round exhibition fight and the 54-year-old has insisted that his proceeds from the bout will go to charity.
Meanwhile, the former heavyweight winner is hoping this comeback will help him take to the rings regularly after his bout against Jones.
Tyson said on the Joe Rogan Experience: “I believe this is just going to be the beginning, and whatever happens, happens in life.
“I’m just interested in fighting for the title of giving. “It feels soul-cleansing for some reason. "Doing it for myself doesn’t do it for me no more.”
Legit.ng earlier reported that Mike Tyson is preparing for a sensational boxing return, even at 54 and he has admitted losing over 37kg and now weighs less than current heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.
He recently released more footage of his training showing his punching power during a pad session with his coach.
The former undisputed heavyweight champion is expected to make a sensational return after 15 years outside the ring for an exhibition fight.
