The heavyweight icon has been enduring a gruelling fitness regimen in preparation to dust off his gloves for charity 15 years after his last scrap.

Tyson ballooned to a whopping 160kg after retiring in 2005 but has since lost more than 60kg to get himself back into terrific shape.

In his latest video, the 53-year-old's hard work has certainly appeared to have paid off as he's dripping in sweat while his trainer puts him through his paces.

Tyson is seen smashing the pads with frightening power while showing off his lightning-quick reactions as he ducks and dives between blows.

The vision has spread across the internet and has been viewed more than two million times on Tyson's Instagram page alone.

In other clips, Tyson looks light on his feet as he pushes his trainer towards the ropes before throwing a lethal combination of punches.

His progress has had fans hugely excited of a return with one commenting on the video: "Imagine being the trainer in front of this."

Another added: "I reckon he'd stand a chance now at his age against the leading heavyweights.

"That clip is ruthless."

Tyson has revealed he has had plenty of offers for an exhibition fight, including from his ex-heavyweight rivals.

Former foe Evander Holyfield has expressed his desire for a trilogy fight.

That is certainly one clash fans would be intrigued to see, with their last showdown ending in a DQ win for Holyfield after Tyson shockingly bit off a chunk of his rival's ear.

Fellow ex-heavyweight champ Shannon Briggs also recently claimed he has agreed to a deal to fight the Baddest Man on the Planet.

Tyson Fury's dad and UFC superstar Jon Jones have also both revealed they would be open to taking on the former undisputed champ.
