Mike Tyson shows power and speed in new footage as Logan Paul still wants fight

Mike Tyson has shown off his vicious power and speed in new footage uploaded to social media by the former heavyweight world champion.

The 55-year-old recently announced that he would be returning to the ring in February 2022 while he attended the bout between Canelo Alvarez and Caleb Plant.

Tyson originally retired from boxing in 2005 after two decades as a professional but came out of retirement for an exhibition fight last year.

Iron Mike faced former four-division world champion Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition fight in California in November 2020 with the fight ending a split decision draw.

Tyson has now shown off his famous speed and power in new footage as he trains ahead of his return to the ring.

In a video uploaded to his TikTok account, Tyson can be seen having his hands wrapped before working out with his trainer.

The veteran fighter is shown dripping with sweat as he works out on the pads and his trainer can be heard saying "Hard Mike" after a combination of punches.

One potential opponent that has put themselves forward to face Tyson next year is YouTuber turned boxer Logan Paul.

Who would win a fight between Mike Tyson and Logan Paul? Let us know in the comments section below.

The older brother of Jake, who faces Tommy Fury in December, took on Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition bout in Miami in June this year.

Despite his hopes of taking on Tyson, UFC commentator Joe Rogan has sent a warning to the man almost 30 years Tyson's junior.

Speaking on his podcast, Rogan said: “The fact that Logan Paul wants to box him. It’s like wow. I can’t believe they’re really going to do that.

“That kid’s going to get hit for sure. Floyd was hitting him. Floyd has only taken a small amount of time off and he had those exhibition fights.

“Floyd has been pretty active as a boxer, he fought Pacquiao recently and that Japanese kickboxing guy.

“He was just fighting guys like Conor McGregor that we knew Floyd was going to beat them, but he was still active.

“Mike hadn’t been active forever. He got fat, but he’s a different kind of person.

“It’s going to be interesting to see what Logan can do to keep away from him. The only thing Logan has on his side is youth.”
