LEGENDARY rapper 50 Cent has heaped praise on Mike Tyson’s amazing body transformation.
Iron Mike is back in extraordinary shape as he prepares for a shock comeback to the ring.
And 50 Cent is clearly impressed with the 53-year-old’s remarkable new look.
He tweeted: “Damn @MikeTyson in shape like a mother f***er, he had a big stomach like a week ago he back!”
In the picture, Tyson just happens to be holding a copy of 50 Cent’s brand new book, entitled “Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter”.
Until his recent comeback preparations, Tyson claimed to have not trained since losing his final fight to Kevin McBride in 2005.
But under the watchful eye of MMA coach Rafael Cordeiro, Tyson has gotten himself back in unbelievable nick.
His comeback will come in the form of four-round charity bouts – but his opponent is yet to be formally announced.
Shannon Briggs claimed that he would be taking on the Baddest Man on the Planet.
But Tyson himself has remained coy.
He said: “Listen we’ve got so many guys that want to do this, man.
“We’re in calls, we’re doing business with guys right now. You’re not going to believe the names when the names come out. Some time this week we’ll have the contract done.

“And whatever money we get, it’s going to somebody else. I’m not going to make any money – probably the company, my wife because she’s partners with me, she’ll make some probably. But my money is going [to charity].”
Another mooted option has been a trilogy fight with Evander Holyfield, who at 57 is also planning a comeback.
A further announcement is expected this week.
