I'm back Tyson declares in video training

Former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson continued to tease boxing fans about a possible return to the ring on Monday by posting another Instagram training video that ended with the message, "I 'm back"

The 53-year-old caught the boxing world's attention last week when he posted a short video of a workout that showed he had plenty of the punching power and speed that allowed him to become the first heavyweight to hold the titles of WBA, WBC and IBF.

Tyson then said he was considering a return to the ring to raise money for charity for some exhibition bouts.

The latest video showed Tyson rumbling through a workout hitting the pads in yet another display of the fierce power that made him one of the most feared punchers in the sport.

Challengers have lined up for a shot at the boxer known as "Iron Mike" since Tyson hinted at a return.

New Zealand's great rugby Sonny Bill Williams, who played a 7-0-0 record in boxing, and Australian Paul Gallen, another rugby player with a 9-0-1 record in the ring, were considered potential opponents.

However, a more likely bet would be Evander Holyfield, with whom Tyson has engaged in several epic bouts during their careers.

If Tyson, who retired after a loss to Kevin McBride in 2005, returns to the ring, he will follow Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao's footsteps in coming out of retirement for an exhibition fight.

When he defeated Trevor Berbick in 1986 at the age of 20, Tyson, who became the youngest heavyweight champion of all time, won 50 of his 58 professional fights before retiring.
