Mike Tyson Shows Henry Cejudo How To Land His Vicious Uppercut In New Training Video

The 53-year-old has been training with legendary MMA trainer Rafael Cordeiro as he prepares for a sensational comeback.

Now, 'Iron' Mike has shared his wisdom with the 33-year-old former double champ by teaching him how to land two fast uppercuts to the body in quick succession.

During the clip, Tyson explained to 'Triple C' to keep his head down while launching two uppercuts at his opponent and performed a quick demonstration on Cordeiro.

Cejudo stepped up and copied the 'Baddest Man on the Planet' as Tyson could be heard saying 'perfect' after the ex-UFC star pulled off the two ferocious uppercuts.

Tyson, who retired from boxing in 2005, announced plans for his comeback as part of a series of exhibition fights for charity.

The former undisputed world heavyweight champ has been linked with a potential fight with fellow boxing legend Evander Holyfield.

Meanwhile, Cejudo has hinted that he could come out of a U-turn on his retirement for a potential fight with UFC featherweight champ Alexander Volkanovski.

"I've done everything in MMA. I'm satisfied with my career," he told TMZ.

"There would only be one fight that would really bring me back, that would really wake me up in the morning -- other than Ryan Garcia -- it would be Alexander Volkanovski.

"I want a third title because I want to be different. There's been a lot of champ-champs, but it's just to cement it and go into the history books as the greatest mixed martial artist of all time."
