“I went from 15 minutes on the treadmill and ended up at two hours” – Mike Tyson
When asked how difficult it was to get in shape at this age, Mike Tyson replied, “Well, it was difficult but only for one particular reason because I had to lose 100lbs. Other than that….I’ve always done this my whole career.”
Mike also attributed his weight-loss to becoming a vegan, spending more time in the gym; before taking his shirt off mid-air to reveal his incredible ripped physique. “I became a vegan. My wife told me to get on a treadmill. I went from 15 minutes on the treadmill and ended up at two hours. I kept going to the gym and watching my diet and I’m beautiful,” Iron Mike said.
Let’s hope the match lives up to the expectation!
