Mike Tyson officially returns to training after postponed Jake Paul fight and the footage speaks volumes

Mike Tyson has officially returned to training ahead of his proposed fight against Jake Paul and the footage speaks volumes.

Tyson was due to face Paul later this month until he suffered a medical emergency on a flight from Los Angeles to Miami in May.

He became nauseous and dizzy after an ulcer flare and received urgent attention.

Tyson’s showdown against Paul was subsequently postponed after the former world heavyweight champion received a warning from medical professionals.

The heavyweight clash has since been rearranged for November 15, with ‘The Problem Child’ taking on former UFC star Mike Perry on the original date of July 20.

‘Iron’ Mike has posted clips of his training camp on social media ahead of his ring return.

And he looks in menacing form as he showed off his power and hand speed whilst hitting the pads with trainer Rafael Cordeiro.

The 57-year-old documented his training on his Snapchat story as he posted a series of videos to his adoring fans.

Paul will welcome Tyson back to the professional ranks when they meet later this year.

The 27-year-old, however, is ‘praying and hoping’ the boxing legend is ‘good’ and ‘healthy’ amid his medical scare.

“He’s ready to go; he just needed a couple of weeks, so he’s back to training. We’re all just praying and hoping that everything is good and that he stays healthy,” he said.

“That’s first and foremost. He’s Mike Tyson at the end of the day. He has lethal knockout power and is very, very experienced. I think it is going to be a brawl regardless.”

Tyson hasn’t competed in a pro bout since June 2005 when he suffered a shock defeat to Ireland’s Kevin McBride.

But he had an exhibition against fellow great Roy Jones Jr back in November 2020.

As for Paul, the 9-1 fighter is coming off a big win over Ryan Bourland.
