(Video) 56-year-old Mike Tyson hits the pads shows he’s still incredibly intimidating

At 56 years old, boxing legend Mike Tyson shows no signs of slowing down. A recent viral video on social media shows him hitting the pads with trainer Rafael Cordeiro, and it’s clear that Tyson still packs a punch.

Tyson is no stranger to the boxing world. He’s a former world heavyweight champion and has had a legendary professional career. After retiring in 2005 following his defeat to Kevin McBride, Tyson made his return to the ring in 2020 for an exhibition bout against fellow boxing icon Roy Jones Jr.

Tyson’s transformation leading up to the Jones bout was impressive. It’s clear that Tyson takes his training seriously and puts in the work to maintain his skills.

The recent Instagram video of Tyson hitting the pads with Cordeiro has sent social media into a frenzy. Fans and experts alike have praised Tyson’s hand speed and power, with some even suggesting he could take on current heavyweight stars like Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.

Some of the comments are as follows:

Tyson’s pad work is not only impressive but also a testament to his dedication to the sport. Despite being retired for almost two decades, he continues to train and hone his skills. This commitment has paid off in his recent exhibition matches, and it’s clear that he still has what it takes to compete at a high level.

Mike Tyson has been recently linked to exhibition matches with Lennox Lewis and even YouTube personality Jake Paul. However, he’s also expressed interest in a wrestling bout against Logan Paul.

While speaking to Forbes, he said: “Have you ever seen me wrestle before? I would do it! I would kick his [Logan Paul’s] a**, yes I would do it. Even though I love him, though.”

“This is what I found out about WrestleMania: Everybody says ‘that’s fake, that’s fake’. But the cheque is real.”

“Deep down inside – don’t let [WWE] know – I would do this for free.”
