Since retiring from the sport of boxing, Mike Tyson has struggled with his weight. At one point he ballooned up to 360 pounds and had a belly bigger than Butterbean’s.
Thanks to changing his lifestyle and a Vegan diet, the hall of fame heavyweight claims to have slimmed down to around 230 pounds.

We would absolutely love to watch Iron Mike step back into the ring, but let’s be real. Whether he’s in fighting shape or not, he would get his butt whooped against any of the top contenders in the world today. He’s too old and lacks the aggressiveness that made him so great.
