Mike Tyson is 53 years old and he can still deliver a fresh can of whoop-ass despite his age.
Just last week, Tyson revealed that he got the boxing bug and has been currently training to possibly make a return to the ring in the near future.

I’ve been hitting the mitts for the last week,” Tyson said recently on Instagram Live with rapper T.I. “That’s been tough, my body is really jacked up and really sore from hitting the mitts. I’ve been working out, I’ve been trying to get in the ring, I think I’m going to box some exhibitions and get in shape. I want to go to the gym and get in shape to be able to box three or four-round exhibitions for some charities and stuff. Some charity exhibitions, make some money, help some homeless and drug-affected like me.”
Even Tyson’s former trainer Jeff Fenech even went out on a limb and said Tyson could probably still knock out several heavyweight boxers today, including Deontay Wilder.

“Boxing’s not the same now.
“I’d guarantee that if Mike Tyson trained for six weeks, he’d knock Wilder out in a minute.
“He would hit them. If these guys are getting knocked out by Tyson Fury – who’s a great fighter, but not a huge puncher – Tyson would kill these guys.
On Friday, Tyson posted a video of one of his training sessions and he’s still one of the scariest dudes on the planet.
The Internet was obviously impressed with Iron Mike’s punching power at this stage of his life.
