However, Tyson recently with Atlanta rapper T.I on Instagram Live, which is a popular trend during these times of self-isolation. During the conversation, Tyson stated that he would like to return to the boxing ring.
“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 mother**kers, you know, like me,” said Tyson on Instagram Live.
Facing the Scariest Man on the Planet
The thought of facing Tyson in a charity exhibition sounds frightening. Especially because his mechanics haven’t decreased, nor his hand speed. Simply put, Tyson still has hands. The power, speed, and muscle memory are real inside the body of Iron Mike.
Tyson has trained with Francis Ngannou and still shows younger fighters how to maneuver around the ring. His flexibility, ability to dodge a punch and reaction time are all still there.
