Mike Tyson has showed off his stunning physique on social media as he helps prepare Francis Ngannou for his fight with Tyson Fury.

Tyson became the sport’s youngest heavyweight champion at the age of 20 back in 1986.

Iron Mike established a 37-fight unbeaten record, before his shock loss to Buster Douglas back in 1990.

He later became world heavyweight champion again, before successive defeats to rival Evander Holyfield.   

Tyson hung up his gloves as a professional in 2005 aged 38, following back-to-back losses to Danny Williams and Kevin McBride.

The boxing legend is widely considered as one of the greatest heavyweights of all time

However, just months after announcing his retirement Tyson would return to the ring to stage a series of exhibitions alongside journeyman heavyweight Corey Sanders.

After the initial event in Ohio was poorly received the remainder of the tour was cancelled and Tyson would step from the sport for nearly 15 years.

Following a number of years outside the ring Tyson began sharing footage of himself working out with MMA trainer Rafael Cordeiro in 2020.

Tyson lost a significant amount of weight by restarting his famed training regime and returned to the ring for an exhibition bout against fellow boxing legend Roy Jones Jnr in 2020.

The ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ took to social media to show he has retained his impressive physique, posting a muscular photo with the caption ‘Still got it’.

Fans praised Tyson for retaining his physique, with one writing ‘Once a fighter is always a fighter’.

‘Soo hard to maintain as you get older, huge respect,’ another wrote.

The boxing legend has recently formed an unlikely partnership with former UFC heavyweight powerhouse Francis Ngannou.

Tyson was approached by Ngannou ahead of his crossover fight against Fury on Saturday.

‘How many times do you really get to be involved in an immortal event,’ Tyson told Mail Sport earlier this month.

‘How many times in my life will I be able to do something like this. 

‘Some of the magnitude. So, of course I would want to be involved in this and say yes to being a part of this.’

Tyson has been working to help improve Ngannou’s striking skills, his precision and ring intelligence. 

Ngannou will attempt to deliver a seismic upset when he faces Fury as Riyadh Season begins in Saudi Arabia.
