54-Year-Old Mike Tyson Shows Off Terrifying Hand Speed, Head Movement And Power
The 54-year-old will face Roy Jones Jr on November 28 in his first fight for 15 years, and he wants to be in top condition.
'Iron Mike' has updated fans on his training regime via social media and the former world champion is looking more and more impressive every week.
His vicious power is on fully display while unloading an array of body shots on trainer Rafael Cordeiro.
Tyson showcases his in-ring intelligence by perfectly defending a flurry of shots from his trainer.
While the former world champion looks in peak condition ahead of his return, he recently admitted it took him over a week to recover when he first started training.
"Getting in shape and getting conditioned are two different animals," the New York native told Joe Rogan.

"They don't even belong in the same division of working out. Getting in shape is getting able to fit in your clothes. Being in condition is being able to come outside of your soul. You can't do that automatically. The emotional state to prepare for that is mind boggling.
"Let me tell you something about [the first training video]. I did that video and I was in bed for a week. That was 30 seconds and I was in bed for a week. That was not funny because it made me realize that this is big boy sh*t."
Tyson also revealed that his motivation to return to the ring was losing weight.
"I was discussing with my wife, something about me being overweight," he continued.
"And she said 'why don't you just get on the treadmill for 15 minutes a day' and it went from 15 minutes to two hours.
"I was complaining about my weight and so, I guess I tried on some clothes and it was disastrous, so I was worried about my weight."
His clash with Jones Jr will be an exhibition bout and fought with larger gloves than normal, but no headgear.
Despite it being an exhibition fight there will be a sanctioned title on the line.
