Oscar De La Hoya Claims Mike Tyson Would KO Top Heavyweight Stars After Sharing Training Clip

Oscar De La Hoya believes that Mike Tyson could KO the heavyweight boxing division's biggest stars should he train for 12 rounds.

And De La Hoya made a bold claim that 'Iron' Mike could knock out the likes of Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder at the age of 53.

"I'm sure that if he trains for 12 rounds, right now he'll knock out any heavyweight," 'Golden Boy' said (via The Daily Mail and The Sun).

Tyson hasn't fought in professional boxing since he suffered back-to-back defeats to Danny Williams and Kevin McBride in 2004 and 2005 respectively.

Tyson said during an Instagram Live: "I've been hitting the mitts for the last week. That's been tough, my body is really jacked up and really sore from hitting the mitts.

"I've been working out, I've been trying to get in the ring, I think I'm going to box some exhibitions and get in shape.

"I want to go to the gym and get in shape to be able to box three or four-round exhibitions for some charities and stuff.

"Some charity exhibitions, make some money, help some homeless and drug-affected motherf****r like me."

UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson were also blown away with Tyson's incredible speed and ferocious display of power.

US President Donald Trump took to Twitter and told the former undisputed heavyweight champ to "keep punching."

Tyson's former trainer, Jeff Fenech, said last month that he would expect 'Iron' Mike to KO Wilder in the first round if he trained for six weeks.
