Mike Tyson shows off remarkable punch power at 57… incredible clip emerges of former heavyweight champion hitting the pads in the gym months after helping Francis Ngannou prepare for his fight with Tyson Fury

Mike Tyson still has his remarkable punching power at the age of 57, as an incredible clip has emerged of the boxing legend hitting the pads in practice.

Tyson was seen in the ring with coach Rafael Cordeiro, who posted a video of the pair to his Instagram.

And Tyson looked extremely spry in the clip as he dodged his coach’s punches and delivered some forceful blows himself.

‘Another day at the office! Thank you for everything my Brother!,’ Cordeiro captioned the clip.

The video comes months after Tyson helped MMA star Francis Ngannou prepare for his crossover fight with Tyson Fury.

Tyson was approached by Ngannou ahead of his crossover fight against Fury last October.

He told Mail Sport, ‘How many times do you really get to be involved in an immortal event.’

‘How many times in my life will I be able to do something like this.

‘Some of the magnitude. So, of course I would want to be involved in this and say yes to being a part of this.’

Tyson became the sport’s youngest heavyweight champion at the age of 20 back in 1986.

He worked with Ngannou to help improve his striking skills, precision and ring intelligence.
