Shirtless Mike Tyson flexes biceps to show off incredible body transformation a week before Roy Jones Jr fight
Like the rest of us, NFL quarterback Russell Wilson wanted to know if Mike Tyson really is ready to return in the ring next week at the ripe old age of 54.
And it’s fair to say a shirtless Tyson flexing his biceps provided quite an effective response.
The boxing legend will make his highly-anticipated comeback against Roy Jones Jr, 51, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on November 28.
Tyson hasn’t fought for 15 years and last tipped the scales at 16.6st when he was forced to quit the sport after defeat to Kevin McBride in 2005.
But with his renewed passions and incredible vigour, he’s whipped himself back into incredible shape.
In recent months, his social media has been full of inspiring footage of him readying for action which has impressed fight fans.
And in an interview with NFL superstar Wilson, the former champ made his outrageous physical condition abundantly clear.
Wilson asked Tyson: “So, tell me about these next two weeks, you ready to roll? You fired up? You gonna look like old Mike Tyson?”
The boxing icon, sitting there topless, replied ‘Yeah man’ before flexing his biceps.
Tyson added: “Look at this! Come on, man. Look at this. Come on, brother.
“I’m The Rock, I’m the Hulkster baby! I’m beautiful baby!”
In fact, Tyson claims to be in the best shape of his life, resembling an 18-year-old version of himself.
Tyson recently said: “The last time I was this weight was 17 or 18 years old.
“I’m really happy with everything I’ve been doing, it’s down to confidence and self affirmation.
“It’s amazing, I’m just ready to do this. I can’t explain it in words.
“I’m going to go as long as this is working. My legend is going to be that I gave a lot more than I took.”
On debut, against Hector Mercedes in 1985, he weighed in at 15.3st, and just a year later he became the youngest world champion in boxing history.
Thereafter, Tyson completed one of sport’s most dramatic careers, from explosive knockouts to public scandals.
No matter what happens during his exhibition against Jones Jr, the sight of a chiselled Tyson in the ring will send memories flooding back.
