Boxing legend ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson has shown off his new ripped off body as he trains ahead of his much-hyped comeback fight against Roy Jones Jnr.
While talking to TMZ Sports in an interview, the man who made history by becoming a heavyweight champion at the age of 20-years shed more light on his vigorous training regime and his comeback fight.
In his own words: ‘At one time I was just 90lbs overweight. I was doing cocaine, I was drinking and I said, “Allah if he can stop me from being this way, I’ll change my whole life.”
‘And eventually, I got married, my life started to change, and I started working out. My brother in law said, “hey listen. I know you don’t want to fight, but would you fight Bob Sapp? Somebody wants to offer you a lot of money to fight him. I said, “get out of here, I told you I don’t want to fight anymore.”
‘And then I thought about it in my mind and went “ding” – I said I would fight [Sapp under the Marquess of Queensberry rules] and for some reason, it went from Bob Sapp to somebody else, and this guy, and the next thing you know, I’m fighting Roy Jones Jr. I don’t know how this happened. I’m just very grateful that I’m not living the life that I was living before. Allah has blessed for me to be able to do this.’
