Mike Tyson nearly knocks trainer’s head off showing brutal power in training

Mike Tyson is looking in remarkable form ahead of his exhibition bout with Roy Jones Jr.

Tyson takes on Jones Jr on November 28 as he makes the former heavyweight champion of the world returns to the ring.

At 54, it’s reasonable to expect Tyson to have slowed down and lost the majority of his power though that doesn’t seem to be the case.

Footage posted online by FightHype shows Tyson smashing the pads of his trainer Rafael Cordeiro.

And Cordeiro can perhaps count himself lucky with Tyson’s power knocking his trainer all over the place, even with a large body pad.

Tyson seems to lose himself at times, coming close to connecting with Cordeiro’s head, earning a stern look from his coach.

Jones Jr has said he may have made a mistake by agreeing to take on Tyson in the bout.

He said: “He's still Mike Tyson, he's still one of the strongest, most explosive people who ever touched a boxing ring.

But Tyson is looking forward to the bout, saying: "What fighters and what athletes in general have to overcome is more psychological and mental than it is physical.
