Mike Tyson Shows Frightening Speed And Boxing Skills As He Spars With His Dog

Boxing legend Mike Tyson rolled back the years as he showcased his skills... but instead of a human opponent standing with him it was his four-legged friend:

The 53-year-old shared the clip of the sparring session on Instagram which shows his pooch Mars Tyson excitedly jumping around him and wagging his tail.

Well actually, Mars shared the clip on his Instagram account but we doubt his lack of opposable thumbs would have allowed him to upload it himself. Nevertheless, he's got a good sense of humour because he captioned the video: "I went easy on him..."

'Iron' Mike bounced around on the spot at frightening speed before pulling out his signature 'peek-a-boo' technique as he practises social distancing amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Fans were quick to point out that Mars eventually scurried away from the former undisputed world heavyweight champ and shared their sympathy for the dog, understanding why Mars decided to opt out of a playful fight with 'Baddest Man on the Planet.'

One fan posted: "I do that with my dog but my dog don't back off and give that look like 'this man is a killer,'" while another added: "Don't blame the dog I'll s*** myself too."

A third said: "Champ still got that movement," with someone else commenting: "That speed tho. The pupper made the right decision. Smart smart doggo."

Last year Tyson showed off his skills once again after BT Sport tweeted footage of the boxing icon sharing his technique and he had no problem showcasing the movement and agility of his youth.

Tyson took off his coat and warmed up before showing why his 'peek-a-boo' technique made him one of the most feared boxers in the world.

It seems he impressed many fight fans, who were quick to praise him on social media for 'not losing his touch.' One said: "I feel like I got KTFOd just by watching this."

Another added: "Power is the last thing to go, he'll be dangerous at 63,73,183 years of age," while a third wrote: "Probably still absolutely batter some of the so called heavyweights of today at 53 .. one of the greatest boxers ever."
