Mike Tyson looks in great shape as he vows to fight in spirit of Chinese leader

Mike Tyson wowed fans with his toned torso and lightning hand speed, before vowing to return to boxing with the spirit of former Chinese leader Chairman Mao Zedong on his side.

There 53-year-old has spent the past few weeks fuelling speculation he is set to make a comeback by posting a host of videos on his social media accounts showing him in training.

Despite having not fought since 2005, the former world champion still appears in good shape and his hand speed remains as ferocious as ever.

And both of those attributes where present for all to see in a clip Tyson shared on Wednesday to help promote his account on Weibo, the Chinese social media platform.

And it seems the 53-year-old is keen to build a fanbase in the country as he claimed he would channel Mao's spirit if he were to return to the ring.

"I want to let you know of the possibility that I might come back and that if I do, I will fight with the spirit of Mao," Tyson told the camera before flexing his biceps and launching into a flurry of punches.

The video is only likely to increase the speculation that the former unified heavyweight king will soon bring an end to his 15-year hiatus from boxing.

And it appears one of the American's first match-ups upon his return could be against a foe he knows so well who is also looking to make his own comeback.

Following Tyson's many clips showing his return, fellow former world champion Evander Holyfield also shared footage of himself back in the gym.

The pair famously fought twice in the 1990s, with Holyfield emerging victorious on both occasions at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena.

The second bout became shrouded in controversy after Tyson was disqualified for biting his rival's ear and it looks like the American pair could meet again in a trilogy fight should they both return to boxing.
