Tyson – the first heavyweight to simultaneously hold the WBC, WBA and IBF titles – is planning to return to the ring next year, with Logan Paul mooted as a possible opponent.
And based on a training video released by Tyson, the 26-year-old YouTuber-turned-boxer could have his work cut out if a blockbuster bout was arranged between the pair.

The 55-year-old released a video of an incredibly intense workout with trainer Rafael Cordeiro
In the clip, Tyson is seen producing a series of dazzlingly quick series of punches as he worked up a sweat with famous trainer Rafael Cordeiro, who helped Tyson become undisputed heavyweight world champion between 1987 and 1990.
The 55-year-old stepped in the ring last year to take on fellow boxing great Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition bout and wants to lace up his gloves again in the near future.
YouTuber Logan Paul – who fought Floyd Mayweather earlier this year – has expressed his desire to face Tyson and fancies his chances of upsetting Iron Mike, but UFC commentator Joe Rogan has warned the 26-year-old against taking the fght.
Speaking to Snoop Dogg, Rogan said on his latest podcast: ‘The fact that Logan Paul wants to box him. It’s like “wow”. I can’t believe they’re really going to do that.
Logan Paul has been mooted to face Tyson year having faced Floyd Mayweather in June
Joe Rogan told Snoop Dogg that Paul would have a hard time getting the better of Tyson
‘That kid’s going to get hit for sure. Floyd was hitting him. Floyd has only taken a small amount of time off and he had those exhibition fights.
‘Floyd has been pretty active as a boxer, he fought Pacquiao recently and that Japanese kickboxing guy.
‘He was just fighting guys like Conor McGregor that we knew Floyd was going to beat them, but he was still active.
‘Mike hadn’t been active forever. He got fat, but he’s a different kind of person. It’s going to be interesting to see what Logan can do to keep away from him. The only thing Logan has on his side is youth.’
