Mike Tyson does boxing training with his son Miguel

  • Retired boxer seen putting 15-year-old son Miguel Leon Tyson through his paces 
  • Iron Mike can be seen holding pads while young Miguel fires sharp left and rights
  • Mike Tyson was the youngest ever heavyweight champion at just 20 years old 

He was the youngest boxer ever to become the world heavyweight champion and had once-in-a-generation power.

But luckily for boxing fans around the world, Mike Tyson’s son could soon be entering the ring, if this video is anything to go by.   

The retired boxer uploaded a clip onto his Instagram story of him putting his 15-year-old son Miguel Leon Tyson through his paces.

Iron Mike can be seen holding pads while young Miguel fires sharp left and rights and ferocious uppercuts. He bops and weaves as his father slowly backs off.

The training video comes on the back of one current heavyweight champ’s bold claims. 

Deontay Wilder told TMZ Sports that there wasn’t a single fighter who could beat him – not even the 1986 version of Tyson.

But former British heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis took to Twitter to laugh off Wilder’s claims. 

Lewis wrote: ‘I just heard @BronzeBomber said he would destroy a young @MikeTyson. My thoughts are that it’s easy to talk until you actually get in 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!

‘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.’
