Mike Tyson is hitting like '21-year-old' in viral comeback video

After a video of Mike Tyson sparring went viral last week, his trainer now says the former undisputed world heavyweight champion could realistically make a comeback in six months - if he wanted to.

"I saw a guy with the same speed, same power as guys 21, 22 years old", trainer Rafael Cordeiro told ESPN.

In an interview with ESPN, trainer Rafael Cordeiro, who appeared in the video, said that Tyson was hitting mitts for the first time in almost a decade.

A second wrote: "Whoever say Floyd would win clearly never seen Mike Tyson fight and probably just think he was just a boxer who relied on his right hand Mike Tyson knew defence, he had speed and he could fight all rounds in his prime Even George Foreman was afraid of Mike".

"I do two hours on cardio, I do the bike and the treadmill for an hour, then I do some light weights, 300, 250 reps". "He hasn't hit mitts for nearly 10 years".

"I don't know, but what I can tell you is that if he wants to do something in the future, we'll be ready to do that, 100 percent", he said.

Tyson had one of the more tumultuous careers in sports history. He said there are other clips of Tyson that are equally impressive. Low Ki's video request didn't come out of thin air either, as earlier this morning MLW boss Court Bauer mentioned the news of 53-year-old Tyson's potential return to boxing in the form of an exhibition match.

Tyson, who became the youngest heavyweight champion of all time when he defeated Trevor Berbick in 1986 aged 20, won 50 of his 58 professional fights before retiring.
