Rafael Cordeiro, the man who has been preparing Tyson for his comeback, told TMZ Sport: "I believe Mike can do it. If he put his mind to it, if he wanna fight for the belt one day, why not? Who says it's impossible to do?

"He's fighting every single day in the gym and I believe the best still to come.

"Why not? If one day he wants to prove, he put his techniques to the test, why not [fight for] for the belt?

"He is improving every day. He does not look like a 54-year-old fighter."

Joshua is current WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight champion while Fury is WBC heavyweight champion.

The most recent footage of Tyson in training shows him nearly knock MMA coach Cordeiro out with a vicious jab.

Tyson can be seen unloading shots into Cordeiro before throwing a huge right hand that misses his face by inches.

'The Baddest Man on the Planet' looks in unreal condition and Jones Jr recently admitted he may have made a mistake challenging the Brooklyn native.

"When it comes time to fight, we're going to fight. If it comes down to bite, we're going to bite. Whatever has to happen, is going to happen, that's just what it is," he told Sky Sports.

"He's still Mike Tyson, he's still one of the strongest, most explosive people who ever touched a boxing ring. If anything, I made a mistake going in with him. He's the bigger guy, he's the explosive guy.

"He's going to have all the first-round fireworks, not me. I do have first-round fireworks, but he's known for more first-round fireworks than anybody to ever touch boxing, other than maybe George Foreman.

"With him having the first-round fireworks, he'll be against a guy smaller than him, maybe 40-50 pounds smaller than him."

Do you think Mike Tyson would give Anthony Joshua or Tyson Fury a run for their money?
