Mike Tyson stunned sport fans with a ‘terrifying’ workout video on the weekend and now an image has emerged of his incredible body transformation.

Tyson, 53, recently announced plans on making a stunning comeback to boxing and his trainer candidly claimed the former champ would knock out Deontay Wilder in a fight if he had six-weeks of training.

‘COWBOY BEHAVIOUR’: Dana White slammed as UFC events go ahead

Despite his last fight coming in 2005, the former ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ proved he still had that raw aggression and speed in a workout video uploaded to Instagram with his new trainer MMA coach Rafael Cordeiro.

Now, Cordeiro has uploaded a photo of Tyson in great shape following a workout.

The photo left fans speechless and even more excited for his planned in-ring return.

His incredible power during training prompted his trainer to claim he is as strong as the heavyweights right now.

“The power is different level,” he told the Ariel Helwani MMA Show.

“I have trained a lot of heavyweights in my career, with not a lot of respect for everybody, but he is almost as powerful as Wanderlei Silva is right now.

“When you talk about power, I held his right hook and thought ‘he is going to kill somebody’.”

Tyson stuns with ‘terrifying’ workout

Fans were left in awe after the 53-year-old posted a video of him striking the pads during a workout.

The sheer power and speed the big man still possesses had fans declaring he would obliterate some heavyweights right now.

Tyson became the youngest heavyweight champion in history at just 20 years of age when he stopped Trevor Berbick for the title.

He went on to record 44 knockouts in 50 wins.

"I've been hitting the mitts for the last week,” Tyson told rapper T.I. on Instagram Live.

"That's been tough, my body is really jacked up and really sore from hitting the mitts.

"I've been working out, I've been trying to get in the ring, I think I'm going to box some exhibitions and get in shape.

"I want to go to the gym and get in shape to be able to box three or four-round exhibitions for some charities and stuff.”
