Mike Tyson returns to training after comeback fight against Roy Jones Jr with explosive pad work and defensive drills

Tyson, 54, and Jones, 51, boxed to a draw over eight exhibition rounds in a fight that provided more clinching than punching.

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 hitting the pads with trainer Rafael Cordeiro.

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."

Jones, who only retired as a pro in 2018, hinted at a rematch having been underwhelmed with the draw.

He said: "I thought I did enough boxing on the outside to edge it out, but I'm cool with the draw.

"It means we just might have to do it again, but I don't know."
