Tyson, who still maintains his love for WWE, keeps an eye on its superstars even today. That said, in his fresh Hotboxin’ podcast, ‘Iron’ Mike showcased his acting skills by mimicking one of WWE’s prime stars, Randy Savage.

“I’m the ‘Macho Man’,” said Tyson in a hilarious tone.

This is not the only time when Tyson has mimicked someone he follows or loves. In the past too, he’s flaunted his acting skills by even mimicking his idol, Muhammad Ali, and his legendary footwork. Above all this, Tyson keeps his love for boxing intact and he dedicates attention to the sweet science in equal measure.

Tyson, 55, keeps himself highly relevant to the boxing fraternity by immersing himself in some extensive boxing workouts and more. A few days back, he dropped a vicious training video, enthralled fans, and seemingly lived up to his moniker of the face of boxing.
