MIKE TYSON is training for a sensational return to boxing amid plans to compete in four-round exhibition fights for charity.
Iron Mike last stepped inside the ring back in June 2005 where he was stopped by Kevin McBride in what proved to be the final bout of his professional career.
The 53-year-old – who was recently crowned as the eWBSS heavyweight champion after outpointing Muhammad Ali in a thrilling final – claims to be in the best shape of his life.
The ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ was crowned the youngest world champion ever, aged 20, and his illustrious 20-year career saw him knock out 44 of his 50 opponents.
His former trainer has even claimed that Iron Mike would still KO fellow American Deontay Wilder inside a MINUTE if he trained for six weeks.
And it turns out Tyson has been getting fighting fit after he admitted he’s undergoing cardio and boxing work to prepare for a return to the ring.
Speaking on an Instagram Live with rapper T.I. he said: “I’ve been hitting the mitts for the last week.
“That’s been tough, my body is really jacked up and really sore from hitting the mitts.
“I’ve been working out, I’ve been trying to get in the ring, I think I’m going to box some exhibitions and get in shape.
“I want to go to the gym and get in shape to be able to box three or four-round exhibitions for some charities and stuff.
“I do two hours on cardio, I do the bike and the treadmill for an hour, then I do some light weights, 300, 250 reps.
“Then I start my day with the boxing thing, I go in there and hit the mits, 30 minutes, 25 minutes, start getting in better condition.
“I’m start to put those combinations together. I’m in pain, I feel like three guys kicked the s*** out of me.”
