Mike Tyson has revealed he has lost nearly five stone since the start of his training ahead of a potential return to the boxing ring. 

The former world heavyweight champion, who turned 54 last month, says he is currently working out at 15.7st (220lbs), less than Anthony Joshua weighed when he beat Andy Ruiz Jr in December last year.

He told FightHype: “We’ve just been training, boxing, and it feels great man. I come from 289lbs to 220lbs and I feel good.”

Despite struggling with drug abuse in the past, the American has expressed his desire to make a boxing comeback in a three-round exhibition match for charity.
