Iron can show signs of rust and deterioration with age, but that’s not the case with ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson, who is still going stronger than ever, despite being 55 years of age.

The former heavyweight champion of the world returned to boxing last year against Roy Jones Jr and since then, continues to awestruck the fans all around the world with the physical condition he still exudes even at this age.

Someone without a deep knowledge of Tyson’s abilities may think that the high-on-cannabis avatar that the veteran shows on his podcasts, but the ‘Baddest man on the planet’ is still one of the fastest when it comes to hitting the gym.

In a recent video shared on his official Instagram, Tyson is seen donning the gloves as he takes to the ring and completely obliterates the training pads, as he prepares for his next exhibition bout.

“Don’t make me have to call your name out. Your crew is featherweight, my gunshots’ll make you levitate”, Tyson captioned the post.

Mike Tyson’s punches pacing up, but not the talks about his next fight

While Mike Tyson prepares for his next fight, there is no actual development on when and where it will take place. On the heels of the Jones fight in November, Tyson said that he would be returning to the ring in Summer 2021, which did not happen.

Speculations are there that there are irks in getting Tyson’s former rival Evander Holyfield as his next opponent. There’s also the lawsuit from Triller which might be a hindrance. Except for Tyson’s punches, nothing else is speeding up at the moment.

The name of Lennox Lewis appeared as Tyson’s next opponent before 2021 ends instead of Holyfield. However, no matter Lewis or Holyfield- the focus and anticipation is on seeing Tyson getting back to the ring, and with the physical form that he is in despite nearing his sixties, it’s deemed to be one thrilling comeback.
