Mike Tyson’s return to the ring on September 12 against Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition bout has been postponed. But ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’ has not let his preparation stop and recently revealed his remarkable physique as he continues to train for a sensational boxing return.
With age not on their side, both the fighters are training hard and are expected to enter the fight with good conditioning. Tyson will have an uphill task on his hand against Roy Jones as the 4-division champion fought as recently as 2018. This is probably why the boxer is going the extra distance to regain his fitness by undergoing electric muscle stimulation, a method where the muscle contracts due to electrical impulses that directly stimulate your motor neurons.
Tyson became the youngest heavyweight champion in history when he won the title in 1986 at age 20 and for a time was the most feared fighter in boxing. But his career became littered with distractions and he hasn’t boxed since 2005 after losing his second straight fight.
Tyson had said then that he was considering a return to the ring for some exhibition bouts to raise money for charity.
