The 53-year-old heavyweight legend Mike Tyson prepares for a boxing comeback, managed to show off its phenomenal body transformation.
Tyson recently published a viral video of him hitting the pads trying to prove that he has not lost both speed and strength of his trademark.
A diet of steaks, alcohol , and drugs after his retirement in 2005 saw his weight balloon to 27 stone. He converted to a plant-based diet back in 2010, helping him lose a lot of weight while even saying that it helps to relieve some of his health concerns.
This comes after the legendary puncher has announced that he will make a ring comeback to play in exhibition fights-15 years after he retires.
Moreover, a photo of Tyson, now weighing about 240 lb, posted online, next to his new trainer, MMA coach Rafael Cordeiro, showed the American in fighting condition having utilized time in lockdown to start practicing again.
Tyson spoke about his diet in an interview with GQ Sports in 2019: “I don’t eat anything that has a mother and a father.
“If you were created by a mother and father through some form of intercourse, I wouldn’t eat you.”
“So I just eat vegetables and stuff.”
And please try to eat vegetables.
And even on May 23, the boxing phenomenon will make the first appearance with WWE’s biggest rival, All Elite Wrestling (AEW), where he’ll be on hand to give the first TNT Championship to the company’s tournament champion.
On Wednesday’s episode of ‘AEW Dynamite’ the news became official, with the final set to see Cody Rhodes take on Lance Archer.
He remains among the most celebrated heavyweights of all time-but plans to lace up the gloves again recently announced to raise funds for charity.
He said on Instagram: “I worked out, I’m trying to get into the ring, I think I’m going to box some exhibitions to get in shape.”
For three weeks in a row Tyson has been training Cordeiro, focusing on his cardio, pads, and bag practice. The trainer believes that heavyweight needs just six months before he can fight again, as he added: “It’s not a joke.
“I believe Mike has fought long , long time against himself. He ‘s proud to be the actual Mike Tyson.
“What I can tell you is that if he wants to do something in the future, we will be 100 per cent ready to do that.”
