Mike Tyson News: Comments about Tyson closed training session

Posted on Monday, February 21, 2005 @ 19:57:40 UTC by tysonian
by Paul Upham: While not exactly surprising, Mike Tyson appears to be headed back to the competitive boxing ring sooner rather than later. At a closed training session on Sunday at his hotel in Los Angeles in the USA, those present claim the former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world looked in awesome punching form.

"Mike was working on the pads and he can still punch," said WBC Interim super middleweight champion Danny Green, who watched the workout. "I can see why fighters were so intimidated by his power. It's all natural."

The now 38 year-old Tyson 50-5 (44), 2 NC has not fought since his July 30, 2004 stoppage loss to Danny Williams, during which he suffered a serious injury to his left knee, which required surgery.

When interviewed on Saturday night, Tyson said that he has been back training in Phoenix. "Mike Tyson has just been healing his knee and it has recovered and I'm just ready to participate in prize fighting again," he said. "In two weeks I'll start going back to the boxing gym and working on my skills. I'm just looking forward to fighting, probably some time in May or June, starting back out with easier fights."
