Mike Tyson reveals dramatic two-year body transformation to become ripped machine at 53 with fans in shock of ‘specimen’


MIKE TYSON was labelled a "specimen" after dramatically transforming his body in just two years ahead of his sensational boxing return.

The 53-year-old has been doing the rounds to prepare to fight again after announcing plans to box in exhibition bouts for charity.

Tyson retired in 2005 and claimed to have not trained since his last loss, against Kevin McBride 15 years ago.

But having spent the last month training under MMA coach Rafael Cordeiro, the reformed Baddest Man on The Planet has transitioned into a ripped-again heavyweight.

And fans are stunned by the body transformation.

One said: "Mike Tyson is a special specimen though. He’s still explosive af in his 50s even after all them drugs and bad life."

Another said: "How old is he aswell, nearly 60? That’s some transformation."

One added: "Great to see this transformation!"

Another added: "Christ almighty, Tyson is in some shape for his age."

Tyson has been confronted with several options ahead of his ring return, including a trilogy bout against 57-year-old Evander Holyfield, who is also making a comeback for charity.

But the youngest heavyweight champion of all time revealed his opponent will be announced this week with contract negotiations near completion.

Tyson said: "Listen we’ve got so many guys that want to do this, man.

“We’re in calls, we’re doing business with guys right now. You’re not going to believe the names when the names come out. Some time this week we’ll have the contract done.

“And whatever money we get, it’s going to somebody else. I’m not going to make any money – probably the company, my wife because she’s partners with me, she’ll make some probably. But my money is going [to charity].”
