Mike Tyson stunned boxing critics and fans on social media as he looked impressive during his exhibition bout against Roy Jones Jr.

And even though he didn't earn the win, the 54-year-old delivered a stellar performance against a younger fighter who last competed just two years ago.

Tyson last fought professionally when he suffered a crushing defeat to Kevin McBride in 2005.

But 'Iron' Mike fought at a steady pace for eight rounds unlike Jones Jr who visibly tired in the later rounds.

The former world heavyweight champion showed off his head movement and vintage shots as he fought to an entertaining draw in Los Angeles.

Speaking after the result, he said: "Sometimes that two minutes felt like three minutes.

"I'm just happy I got this under my belt and I'm going to continue to go further and do more, absolutely.

"This is bigger than fighting and winning a championship. We're humanitarians, we're helping people.

"That's bigger, I'm into that now."

Tyson had been linked with former foe Evander Holyfield before opting to face Jones Jr.

With the boxing icon looking for more opportunities, a third fight with 'The Real Deal' could potentially be on the cards.
