Mike Tyson posted an old-school picture of himself in his signature black shorts, a few days ago. That picture by ‘Iron Mike’ raised a lot of eyebrows because of the fantastic shape he is in. Evander Holyfield has now posted a picture on his Twitter, displaying his signature mustache that he sported during his heyday.

The legend of the sport even posted it in the same fashion as his rival, using the black and white, vintage theme.

Despite the nature of the picture, it is difficult to ignore just how ripped Holyfield looks. At 58, he looks in tremendous shape. He constantly updates fans on his progress with multiple videos of his training and workouts. It seems to be paying off for the American.
