Mike Tyson isn’t a young man anymore, but that doesn’t mean he’s lost a step.
Earlier this week, a clip of Tyson showing a star MMA fighter the ropes hit social media and quickly went viral. The video showed Tyson still has the speed and strength necessary to take down his opponents – if he was still boxing, of course.
UFC heavyweight Francis Ngannou received some tips from the former heavyweight boxer. Ngannou said he’s training for a fight against current heavyweight star Tyson Fury – though that fight isn’t likely to happen any time soon.
If it does, however, Ngannou will be prepared after learning from the best in the business.
“Spoke with Mike Tyson and he agreed to train me for when I fight Tyson Fury in the Ring. Don’t be scared Fury. You called me out and now you’ll have to live with it,” Ngannou said.
Here’s the clip of Tyson.

Ngannou has won his last three fights by knockout in the first round. However, taking on one of the world’s best boxers in his respective sport might not be a great idea.
We all know how Conor McGregor fared against Floyd Mayweather when Mayweather actually decided to box.
However, it would be fun to see.
