Mike Tyson is 53 years old but you’d still back him to give a good account of himself against most in the ring.

The former heavyweight champion, who knocked out 44 opponents during his highly successful career, has been reminding fans of his sheer power on social media.

Mike Tyson is entertaining himself in self-isolation

As the majority of the world self-isolates amid the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus, the self-proclaimed ‘baddest man on the planet’ has shown he’s still got it by posting a video of himself sparring with his dog, Mars.

Have a look at the clip, below…

Tyson was famed for his speed and power during his time in the ring and it’s clear to see he’s still got it, with footage showing Mars quickly retreat to the other room.

And it is not the first time that the heavyweight legend has come to blows with an animal.

Tyson famously had a tiger as a pet that he often use to fight with.

However, the New York-born bruiser recently revealed that he had to give it up after it ‘ripped someone’s arm off.’

“I did have a pet tiger, her name was Kenya and she was around 550 pounds,” Tyson told GQ, per the DailyStar.

“I had a great affection for her; I kept her, I slept with her, I kept her in my room.

“She stayed with me I had her about 16 years. She was a massive monster, you can’t imagine the size of her.

“But she got too old and I had to get rid of her when her eyes and her head got bad. Oh and she ripped somebody’s arm off.”
