Mike Tyson’s rumoured return to the boxing ring has got people asking – is this the real deal or just a publicity stunt?
At 53, Tyson’s impressive speed and ferocity in filmed pad workouts have fuelled the speculation.
“The power is different level,” says Rafael Cordeiro, the trainer holding the pads. “I didn’t expect to see what I saw – I saw a guy with the same speed, the same power as a guy who is 21-, 22-years-old.”
However, the last time someone was punching back Tyson quit on his stool against Kevin McBride in his last bout in 2005.
