THERE may very well be one other “Iron Mike” set to enter the boxing scene.
As soon as feared as essentially the most terrifying heavyweight boxer ever, Mike Tyson is now concentrating on coaching his son Miguel Leon Tyson.
The retired boxer uploaded a clip onto his Instagram story of him placing his 15-year-old son via his paces.
He used the hash-tag “household exercise session” and tagged in his satisfaction and pleasure.
Miguel seemed just like the proverbial chip off the outdated block, firing sharp, rasping punches as he labored the pads.
And will Mike be coaching his boy to punish one present heavyweight champ for some astonishing claims?
WBC king Deontay Wilder informed TMZ Sports activities that there wasn’t a single fighter who might beat him, and that would come with the 1986 model of Tyson.
However former British heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis, who secured a surprising eight-round KO of Tyson again in 2002, laughed off Wilder’s claims.
IT’S ON Deontay Wilder FINALLY set to fulfill Anthony Joshua – and it is quickly
Posting on Twitter, Lewis mentioned: “I simply heard @BronzeBomber mentioned he would destroy a younger @MikeTyson.
“My ideas are that it’s straightforward to speak till you really get within the ring.

“I like Wilder but he’s never been in there with someone that ferocious who truly wants to break his ribs with every punch. I don’t see it!
“I love Wilder’s confidence – you need that to sit atop the heavyweight division – he’s hungry and shows up in probably best shape in division but there’s levels to it and he’s still adding to his arsenal.
“My best advice to the entire crop of young heavyweight champs is to focus on being the best of YOUR era! Out of respect and reality.
“It’s unprovable. Of course people asked, but I found no need to speculate or compare myself to my idol Ali or any other of the past greats.
“History will decide your place among the all time greats… so go out there, clean up the division, defend your title, reign supreme and your work will speak for itself.”
He may have some years to go until he can turn pro, but young Miguel might fancy some revenge for Wilder’s outlandish claims.
