The United State President, Donald Trump, has given a nod to the former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson, ahead of his return to boxing in the form of a charity fight.
The 53-year-old had posted a clip of his training on his social media handle ahead of the fight.
The US President wasted no time in responding to Tyson’s frightening power and blistering hand speed as he took to social media to encourage the boxing legend.
The President wrote on his Twitter handle said: “Keep punching Mike!”
‘Iron’ Mike hasn’t fought in 15 years and last stepped inside the squared circle in 2005, when he suffered a stoppage defeat to Kevin McBride.
While speaking with rapper T.I, he said: “I’ve been hitting the mitts for the last week.
“That’s been tough, my body is really jacked up and really sore from hitting the mitts.
“I’ve been working out, I’ve been trying to get in the ring, I think I’m going to box some exhibitions and get in shape.
“I want to go to the gym and get in shape to be able to box three or four-round exhibitions for some charities and stuff.
“Some charity exhibitions, make some money, help some homeless and drug-affected motherf**ker like me.
“I do two hours on cardio, I do the bike and the treadmill for an hour, then I do some light weights, 300, 250 reps.
“Then I start my day with the boxing thing, I go in there and hit the mits, 30 minutes, 25 minutes, start getting in better condition.
“I’m start to put those combinations together. I’m in pain, I feel like three guys kicked the s**t out of me.”
