Mike Tyson's Ferocious Raw Power And Speed Nearly Knocks Out His Trainer

Mike Tyson nearly knocked his trainer clean out with a ferocious strike while sparring in a recent video.


MMA coach Rafael Cordeiro has been helping 'Iron Mike' get ready for his comeback but got more than he bargained for earlier this week.

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 his speed is frightening for someone who is 54-years-old.

Fans have reacted to the clip and they worry what Tyson will do to Jones Jr when they meet in just over two months time.

One fan commented: "Still makes me smile in amazement how fast and skillful Mike still is at his age, lightning fast."

While a second added: "This dude is definitely gonna break Roy's ribs."

A third simply stated: "Jesus he does look fast for his age."

Jones Jr is aware of the threat Tyson offers and even admits he may have made a mistake in taking the fight.

"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."
