Former heavyweight champion of the world, Mike Tyson spoke about his incredible weight loss journey.
Tyson has kept himself busy for the past few months. He has collaborated with Chinatown Market to raise money for the ‘Tyson Cares Foundation’ and also kept himself fit.
With his trainer Rafael Cordeiro and a little help from science, Mike has been sharpening his skills. His coach even admitted that Tyson moves and throws punches like a 22-year-old.
At a point in time, Tyson looked like a shadow of his former self. But now, he is ripped and looks much younger than he is. Just watch his latest beach video from the link below.
Ever wondered how much weight he lost? Well, in an interview with FightHype.com, Tyson spoke about his insane weight cut. Additionally, he revealed that he is in Dana Point at his partner’s place.
According to Tyson, he cut down from 289 lbs to 220 lbs. That is 69 lbs in total.
“I just came out to my partner’s house. She lives out here,” Tyson said. “We’ve just been training, boxing, and it feels great man. I come from 289 lbs to 220 lbs. And I feel good.”
Tyson’s final two matches didn’t go his way. He last competed against Kevin McBride in 2005. Unfortunately for the American, he lost the match and hung up his gloves.
“Iron Mike” is now preparing for a comeback fight. However, it will be an exhibition match. And all of Tyson’s money will go to charity. The retired boxer plans to use his fame to help underprivileged people.
Many opponents have been considered. Boxers and even mixed martial artists have challenged Tyson for a match. Some of them even proposed bizarre stipulations.
Nevertheless, the opponent that stands out from the rest is Evander Holyfield. As long as the match raises money for charity, there is a good chance that Holyfield vs Tyson 3 will happen.
