Mike Tyson is still going through the gears in training after his exhibition bout against Roy Jones Jr in November – with the boxing legend keen to climb through the ropes again.

‘Iron’ Mike made a sensational return to boxing for a money-spinning clash with Jones, almost 14 years since he last competed in an exhibition against Corey Sanders.

The pair were held to a draw in their exhibition at Staples Center, despite many claiming Tyson did enough to have his hand raised on the night.

The former undisputed heavyweight champion is targeting another bout in the near future, saying after his draw with Jones: “This is better than fighting for championships. We’re humanitarians now.

“We can do something good for the world. We’ve got to do this again. It has to be competitive. I once had 15 fights in one year. Let’s just try and work closer to that.”

Tyson can be seen going toe-to-toe in an MMA cage, given Cordeiro specialises in that field, with a man almost half his age.
