Mike Tyson is lean, mean and ready to rumble should the situation arise.
The former heavyweight champ posted a workout video on Instagram that’s sparking rumors of a comeback.
In the 21-second clip, Tyson, 53, shows off his devastating repertoire of hooks and uppercuts, then wraps things up by looking into the camera and saying “I’m back.”
He wrote on Instagram “Anything is possible when you are smart about it. Train Smart. Recover Smarter.”
The Brooklyn native also promoted his Smart Cups energy drink in that posting.
Tyson posted a jaw-dropping workout clip May 1 where the throws six power punches at his trainer’s gloves in five seconds and fits in a bob-and-weave move.
According to Tyson’s rep, Iron Mike is simply staying in shape and has no matches lined up, though Tyson did say during an interview with rapper TI last month he might lace up the gloves for a good cause.
“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,” Tyson said.
Former heavyweight champion Larry Holmes, who lost to Tyson in a 1988 fight for the undisputed heavyweight championship of the world, told the Daily News in January that he was planning to get back in the ring for charity against his old rival Gerry Cooney. But in April, the 70-year-old “Easton Assassin,” unable to train during the pandemic, said talks of that exhibition had flamed out.
