Mike Tyson Tells the World ‘I’m Back!’ [WATCH]

Mike Tyson 2016


Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson made a shocking declaration in the latest training footage the 53-year-old released on Monday via social media.

“I’m back,” Tyson said along with a video montage of some seriously fantastic-looking combinations.

This is the second video the boxing legend has released, and it shows off the fighter’s ferocious speed and power, the likes of which helped Tyson become one of the most popular heavyweight champions ever.

Is Tyson Staging Legit Boxing Comeback?

Is Tyson planning to stage a legit comeback or something else?

It’s fair to wonder what the former champion has in mind for himself right now, especially if you’ve followed the story since he first broke the news earlier this month that he was training again.

Back then, Tyson told rapper T.I. in an interview posted to Instagram Live that he wanted to do get in shape and do some charity work.

“I want to go to the gym and get in shape to be able to box three- or four-round exhibitions for some charities and stuff,” Tyson said. “Some charity exhibition, make some money, help some homeless and drug-affected (vulgarity), you know, like me.”

A week later, Tyson’s first training video went viral, and soon after that former rival Evander Holyfield revealed he and Tyson might be headed back into the ring together again for a third fight.

But now? Does Tyson’s “I’m back” mean the same thing that NBA Legend Michael Jordan’s did 25 years ago?

Is Tyson seriously coming back to compete for world titles again?

Only Tyson Knows His Real Plans

Right now, only Tyson knows what he’s planning to do inside a boxing ring.

Still, it’s worth noting that accompanying each of Tyson’s viral training videos were advertisements of some kind.

“I’m a Bad Boy for Life. Watch #BadBoysforLife now on DVD Blueray,” Tyson posted with the first video on Instagram.

“Anything is possible when you are smart about it. Train Smart. Recover Smarter,” Tyson posted with the second one for a product called Smart Cups.

So while it’s entirely possible Tyson might legitimately want to box again, and even slightly more probable that he’s planning some kind of event soon in which he dons a pair of boxing gloves for charity, it’s also super likely Tyson’s just found a new way to market products and make money of off his name.
