A shot of him smiling as his shoulders and pecs bulge out of a T-shirt from yesteryear was accompanied with a caption saying: “54 today. Where did the time go?”

Despite being another year older, Iron Mike still looks in sensational shape now after announcing he is on the comeback trail.

The icon was mobbed by fans over the weekend and bombarded by selfie requests on Venice Beach boardwalk.

Even a face mask to help prevent the threat of Covid-19 was not enough to stop supporters asking for a photo with the former world champion.

Figures show that coronavirus cases surged by over 7,400 in California on Monday – the biggest one day increase since tracking began.

But that did not stop the “Baddest Man On The Planet” from pulling down his face mask to pose for snaps with his trademark clenched fist in the air.

Tyson last fought in 2005 but is ready to step back into the ring for an exhibition bout for charity.

He has stunned fans with recent training videos that show off his blistering pace and punching power.

The former champion ballooned to a whopping 27st after retiring but has since lost 10st to get himself back into terrific shape.

Iron Mike has revealed he has had plenty of offers for an exhibition scrap including from his former heavyweight rivals.

Evander Holyfield has expressed his desire for a trilogy fight despite having a chunk of his ear bitten off in their infamous second fight.

Tyson Fury also revealed how Tyson’s team wanted a staggering £500million to fight the Gypsy King.
