Boxing legend Mike Tyson is continuing to put the work in the gym as he works his way back into competition shape for his reported boxing comeback.
The 53-year old former heavyweight world champion stated in an interview with rapper T.I. that he plans to get back in the ring for some charity matches, and has been training with long-time MMA and boxing coach Rafael Cordeiro.

Now, 'Iron Mike' appears to have linked up with another fellow heavyweight legend in former UFC champion and ONE Championship star Vitor "The Phenom" Belfort.
Belfort posted a video of himself and Tyson on Instagram working out in Jacksonville, Florida.
"Mike was my motivation to becoming the king and record holder of the most KO in UFC history since 1993," Belfort wrote.
Like Tyson, Belfort was also known for his uncanny ability to knock people out with a devastating mix of hand speed and punching power.
When Tyson was in his heyday in boxing, Belfort was making a name for himself in the UFC as it's youngest heavyweight tournament champion ever.
Belfort is expected to make his ONE Championship debut against Alain Ngalani in the near future.
Also hanging out with Tyson and Belfort was recently-retired former two-division UFC world champion Henry "Triple C" Cejudo.
Belfort also shared a photo of a chiseled Tyson, who starting to look more and more like his old, champions self.
"Mike Tyson is like a fine wine. I recommend you to don't let your age define you. Set your goal and fight for them. Be a champ," Belfort wrote.
Both Tyson and Belfort were also in attendance at AEW's Double or Nothing event the night before.
