Mike Tyson feels the same as he was in his prime years as he prepares to make a stunning boxing comeback.
The 53-year old looks in incredible shape on the pads and has revealed he is training for “three or four- round” exhibitions for some charities”.
Having ended his career in disappointing fashion with three defeats in his last four fights, Tyson now feels back to his best physically and wants to help those struggling with addiction and homelessness as part of his return.
That’s all I’ve been doing, getting into shape,’ Tyson said on a #PlayApartTogether live stream on Facebook.
“I feel unstoppable now. I feel the same [as when I was in my prime] again. The gods of war ignited my ego and want me to go to war again.
“Imagine if I went out there and fought and I could help all these people we talked about.”
Tyson has denied reports he has been offered $1 million to return to the ring against two-time Rugby union World Cup winner Sonny Bill Williams.
But has been subject to a flurry of offers that stretch from bare-knuckle fighting for big bucks to Tyson Fury’s dad John, who has called him out in an x-rated video message.
Coincidentally, Evander Holyfield, Tyson’s old rival and the man whose ear he chomped into back in 1997, is also returning to the ring for some exhibition matches.
And despite beating Tyson twice already, he’s expressed his interesting in mixing up again but for a good cause.
“I’ve already done what I wanted to do in my career and have been the best that I could be. If it wasn’t for charity, I wouldn’t fight Tyson,” Holyfield told Boxing Scene.
“I don’t look at it as being a winner in this fight. This is a charity event helping our foundations. The thing is knowing what you’re doing it for.
“I’m not afraid of [Tyson] or anything like that, as long as it works for both of us [financially].
“I wouldn’t ask for him to do it if he didn’t want to. He’d have to ask me. It’s like being the bully, I already beat him twice.”
