Former-world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson has continued to tease boxing fans about a possible return to the ring posting another training video on Instagram that ended with the message “I’m back.”
The 53-year-old caught the attention of the boxing world last week when he posted a short video of workout which showed he possess plenty punching power and speed that allowed him to become the first heavyweight to hold the WBA, WBC, IBF titles.
Tyson said then that he was considering a return to the ring for some exhibition bouts to raise money for charity.
The latest video showed Tyson growling through a workout hitting the pad in yet another display of the ferocious power that made him one of the sport’s most feared punchers.
Since Tyson hinted at a return, challengers have been lining up for a shot at the boxer known as “Iron Mike”
A more likely bet, would be Evander Holyfield with whom Tyson engaged in several epic of bouts during their professional careers.
If Tyson, who retired from boxing after a defeat to Kevin McBride in 2005, does return to the ring, he will be following in the footsteps of Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao in coming out of retirement for an exhibition fight.
