HOW HE LOST WEIGHT

Apparently, Tyson's wife played a big role in his weight loss journey. When Holmes asked Tyson what his weight loss secret was, he shared how difficult it was to get on track. He said:

"I became a vegan. My wife told me to get on a treadmill. I went from 15 minutes on the treadmill and ended at two hours. I had to lose 100 pounds."

TYSON'S GOAL

Tyson is all about hard work and has done it his whole life, so even though losing that much weight was difficult, he kept pushing himself. His dedication and positive outlook have earned many praises.

Tyson's goal is to be in the best shape for his comeback fight with Roy Jones Jr. this weekend. He will take on Jones in an exhibition fight and looks highly motivated for the epic challenge.

In an Instagram story video that he shared back in September, Tyson almost knocked his trainer Rafael Cordeiro out as he threw a series of power-packed punches at him. Cordeiro did not see it coming!

JONES SEEMED NERVOUS

As he ducked his head out of the way, Cordeiro looked shocked. After watching the video, former boxers weighed in and said that the November 28 fight might leave Jones seriously injured.

Even Jones seemed to be worried about his decision to take on one of the most powerful boxers of all time. Calling Tyson a big and explosive guy, he was wondering If he had made a mistake. Only time can tell!
