Mike Tyson's trainer has dropped a hint that the boxing legend could potentially switch to MMA after sharing footage of him sparring in a cage.

But could the 54-year-old swap the ring for the cage in his next outing?

Well, his coach Rafael Cordeiro has teased fight fans by uploading a clip of Tyson going through his paces inside a cage.

The Brazilian MMA coach posted footage of Tyson battering 28-year-old Mike Russell, accompanied with the caption: "The tiger @miketyson, is in the cage. Watch out!"

The video shows Tyson exchanging punches with Russell as Cordeiro watches on and shouts words of encouragement at Kings MMA in Huntington Beach.

Tyson fought to a draw with fellow American great Roy Jones Jr in an eight-round exhibition bout in Los Angeles.

He looked in tremendous shape as he underwent a remarkable body transformation.

And he insists he'll continue his comeback trail this year.

"Once I announced that I was going to do my exhibition, everybody, all these other athletes all wanted to get involved in some way," he revealed.

"Our first show was a record breaker. Now everybody's interested in being involved with our whole organisation."

Tyson added: "It was interesting. I felt really good, I felt confident.

"I felt that I could do it again."

When asked if he'll lace up the boxing gloves again, 'Iron' Mike replied: "Yeah, absolutely. It'll be better this time."
