Mike Tyson, the former heavyweight champion, is set to take on Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition match. A lot has changed since the last time Tyson stepped into the ring. However, he still remains one of the most intimidating figures in combat sports.

During his career, Tyson was not the tallest heavyweight around. He made up for the disadvantage and height with raw power that could knock his opponent out into another realm. Tyson always maintained an incredibly chiseled body and was a physical specimen to behold.

During his time away from the sport, Tyson ballooned up to over 300 pounds. However, recent pictures show him in incredible shape for a 54-year-old.

In a recent interview, Helwani asked Tyson how he was able to get back in shape. He said, At first you start to feel sorry for yourself. I look so big I look so fat. Then my wife said get on the treadmill for 15 minutes. Then the 15 minutes turned into two hours. Then I started dieting. Like normally when I fight I eat my Moose and Elk and stuff. But if Im just living my life, Im a vegan.

Iron continued, I dont eat no red meat or anything. I dont eat anything. Beans and rice.

Tyson looks in great shape for a person who has been training for just a few months now. However, his fight will not have the same feel due to the restrictions on it. Keeping the age of the two fighters in mind, the rules for the fight have been altered. This is to keep the boxers from absorbing any more damage than they have in their active careers.

It will be interesting to see how Tyson fares after a 15-year break.

What do you make of Mike Tysons transformation? Do you think he looks as good as he used to earlier on in his career? Let us know in the comments below.
