Mike Tyson is still a beast!
There was a time when the heavyweight boxing champion was considered the ‘Baddest Man on the Planet.’ With the introduction of MMA to the world the title may have shifted. Despite that, heavyweight boxers are still considered some of the most dangerous warriors to walk the earth.
During the 1980s and early 90s, the designation of ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ was firmly held by Mike Tyson. With his devastating power it was no surprise that Mike Tyson earned the moniker ‘Iron.’ Opponents are separated from their consciousness time and again throughout Tyson’s career.
Fast forward to present day and Mike Tyson is more known for his popular podcast Hotboxin’ more than his pugilistic abilities. But at the back of everyone’s minds, there’s no way to separate Mike Tyson the podcaster from the former heavyweight champion of the world.
With recent training videos showcasing his intentions to make a return, Mike Tyson looks just as powerful as ever. Training with famed striking coach Rafael Cordeiro, Mike Tyson appears so powerful that he could challenge for the belt today.
With such devastating power and speed at his advanced age, many have speculated that Tyson could still win a title. Mike Tyson could potentially even face Evander Holyfield in a third match as his former rival has come out retirement himself. For now it’s just speculation, but this video clip surely makes one wonder.
