Mike Tyson looks sharp and powerful as 54-year-old shows off brutal strength ahead of £200m Evander Holyfield rematch

MIKE TYSON has shown off his incredible speed and strength at the age of 54 as he prepares for his £200million trilogy showdown with old rival Evander Holyfield.

Earlier this week, SunSport revealed Iron Mike and old foe Holyfield, with a combined age of 112, are in talks over a money-spinning clash in Dubai.

Tyson returned to the ring in November 2020 for an exhibition clash with fellow veteran Roy Jones Jr.

The Baddest Man on the Planet could only manage a draw in the massively-hyped super-fight.

But Tyson looks keen to come racing out of the blocks against Holyfield as he grafted hard in training.

The American ace was seen looking as quick and powerful as ever during his most-recent training session.

Tyson landed a flurry of powerful punches to the body of coach Rafael Cordeiro, while effortlessly ducking and weaving out of the way of incoming blows.

And fans were left staggered by his agility at the age of 54.

One wrote: "Man is still faster than some of your favourite heavyweights. He makes Joshua look like a stiff robot."

Another said: "He makes Fury look like a big slug."

A third added: "Look at this legend still at work like never before."

American heavyweights Tyson and Holyfield went toe-to-toe twice during their professional careers.

Holyfield won the thrilling first fight in November 1996 via 11th-round stoppage.

The rematch, seven months later, remains one of the most infamous fights in history.

In June 1997, Tyson was disqualified for biting off a chunk of the Real Deal’s ear.

Holyfield, now 58, is believed to have blown through nearly the same £300m fortune his old foe splurged away in their wild heydays.

But Tyson enjoyed a windfall by boxing Jones Jr in a pay-per-view exhibition that turned out to be a financial success.

Holyfield was the original opponent Team Tyson had in mind for his comeback, after 15 years retired, but the deal fell through allowing Jones Jr to profit.

The only man to be undisputed champion in two divisions, Holyfield looks in fine shape for his years.

But a video leaked last year from the set of one of his promo training videos appeared to show a man losing the battles against Father Time and a long list of injuries.
