Press release: Former undisputed heavyweight
champion Mike Tyson worked the slip bag, sparred and shadow boxed
before cooling down after a spirited 90-minute training session
Thursday at The Central Gym in Phoenix.

“I’m feeling good and the hard work is paying off. I can feel
it,” said Tyson, who makes his eagerly awaited return to the ring
against Kevin McBride June 11 on SHOWTIME Pay Per View. “I have been
training for almost two months and feel excited about where I am at.
It’s funny, but I am doing all the little things now in training that I
should have done when I was younger. I am working much harder. I am
planning to fight a lot in the next 12 months. Now is the time to make
my move.”
