THERE could be another “Iron Mike” set to enter the boxing scene.

Once feared as the most terrifying heavyweight boxer ever, Mike Tyson’s son Miguel looks to be a chip off the old block.

The retired boxer uploaded a clip onto his Instagram story in 2018, where he put his son, who was 15 at the time, through his paces.

He used the hash-tag “family workout session” and tagged in his pride and joy.

Miguel looked like an Iron Mike 2.o, firing sharp, rasping punches as he worked the pads.

Since the throwback footage, Tyson incredibly made his own comeback – 15 years after retiring following two dismal defeats.

The heavyweight legend returned to the ring in November, and did so with massive pay-per-view success.

Tyson, 54, boxed fellow icon Roy Jones Jr, 51, with the fight ending a draw after eight exhibition rounds.

Iron Mike confirmed afterwards that he will lace up the gloves as soon as possible, and even called for a rematch.

And it appears he is wasting no time in preparing for his next fight after video revealed Tyson hitting the pads with trainer Rafael Cordeiro in a recent training session.


In a clip shared on Instagram, Tyson lets his hands go with rapid speed, slipping and rolling in between, showing off smart defence.

A separate clip revealed the iconic puncher working solely on his defence, slipping several shots coming his way before bouncing on his toes.

Tyson and Jones are believed to have banked £60million for the 1.6million PPVs they sold.

And Iron Mike is ready to do it all again – keen to improve on his last performance.

He said after fighting Jones: “I could’ve done everything better.

“Everything I was doing I could’ve done it better, so God willing, I’ll be better the next exhibition.”
