Mike Tyson Sends Warning To Anyone Abusing Him On Social Media

Mike Tyson Sends Warning To Anyone Abusing Him On Social Media

We can't imagine too many people would be silly enough to troll Mike Tyson given he was nicknamed 'the Baddest Man on the Planet' for a reason.

But Tyson went ahead and gave a clear message for any trolls out there on his Facebook page.

Accompanied by a picture of him, the former world heavyweight champion posted text that read: "Social media made y'all way to comfortable with disrespecting people and not getting punched in the face for it."

Tyson was of course pretty handy at punching people in the face, with a 50-6 professional record of which 44 of his fights ended in him knocking out his opponents.

Back in incredible fighting shape at the ripe old age of 54, Tyson has revealed he is training for "three or four- round" exhibitions for some charities" in the near future.

Iron 'Mike' has looked extremely sharp in multiple training videos posted online and has lost a staggering 29lbs since getting back in the gym.

"I just came out to my partner's house. She lives out here, [Dana Point, California]" Tyson explained to Fight Hype.

"We've just been training, boxing, and it feels great man. I come from 289lbs to 220lbs. And I feel good."

Having ended his career in disappointing fashion with three defeats in his last four fights, Tyson now feels "unstoppable" as he prepares for a return to the ring in the hope of helping people who have struggled with addiction and homelessness.

"That's all I've been doing, getting into shape,' Tyson said on a #PlayApartTogether live stream on Facebook.

"I feel unstoppable now. I feel the same [as when I was in my prime] again. The gods of war ignited my ego and want me to go to war again.

"Imagine if I went out there and fought and I could help all these people we talked about."

A whole host of potential opponents have been mooted, ranging from his old rival Evander Holyfield right through to current WBC world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.

There's even been talk of interesting offers from New Zealand rugby player Sonny Bill Williams and MMA legend Wanderlei Silva.
