Retired Heavyweight boxer, Mike Tyson has revealed plans to return to the ring, claiming that he is in the best shape of his life.
Tyson who said this while having an Instagram chat with rapper T.I. on Instagram Live from quarantine this week, revealed that he’s been training hard ahead of his comeback, which will involve taking part in matches for charity.
His words, “I’ve been hitting the mitts for the last week. That’s been tough, my body is really jacked up and really sore from hitting the mitts. I’ve been working out, I’ve been trying to get in the ring, I think I’m going to box some exhibitions and get in shape. I want to go to the gym and get in shape to be able to box three or four-round exhibitions for some charities and stuff. Some charity exhibitions, make some money, help some homeless and drug-affected motherfucker like me.”
“I do two hours on cardio, I do the bike and the treadmill for an hour, then I do some light weights, 300, 250 reps,” he said. “Then I start my day with the boxing thing, I go in there and hit the mitts, 30 minutes, 25 minutes, start getting in better condition. I’m starting to put those combinations together… I’m in pain, I feel like three guys kicked the shit out of me.”
However, Tyson’s fellow boxing legend George Foreman has said that he should rethink coming out of retirement, even for charity. “Tyson has done enough great things for boxing. No more is needed,” Foreman told World Boxing News. “He is in the Hall of Fame and was a mighty puncher.”
