Mike Tyson shows off lean body transformation as 54-year-old sheds pounds despite fears Roy Jones Jr fight may be OFF

MIKE TYSON has shown off the latest results from his astonishing body transformation, looking ultra-lean despite reports his fight with Roy Jones Jr could be OF.

The boxing legend, 54, appears to be in the shape of his life as he prepares to take on fellow his veteran in November.

Tyson posted a series of pictures on his Instagram looking chiselled and focused.

He captioned the post of himself wearing a "Tyson" T-shirt: "Iron will."

The American legend has been working hard in the gym for months now after first teasing his comeback in May.

Tyson retired in 2005 and claimed to have not trained since his last loss, against Kevin McBride 15 years ago.

And he now looks a completely different man from the one seen in 2018, after shedding the pounds and packing on the muscle after taking his return to the ring seriously.

However, Tyson's grind in the gym could all be in vain with his Jones suggesting he could pull out of the fight.

The pair agreed to an eight-round exhibition bout to be held on September 12.

But social media app Triller, who have the pay-per-view rights for the spectacle, announced it would be postponed by over two months – with a new date set on November 28.

He told the Daily Mail: "We’re trying to figure something out, my lawyers is talking with their lawyers, trying to figure out ways to make it a better situation so that I can compensated for it, that is more beneficial for me to do.

"If they don’t make it make sense, [the fight] would be off.

"Why would I change the date and mess up the rest of my year when I agreed to September 12."

The fight was due to go behind closed doors, with an unnamed but recognised sanctioning body overseeing the bout.

But the delay brought up suggestions organisers are hoping fans will be allowed back into venues to bring in ticket sales.

Jones added: "They said they wanted to get a crowd, if you want to get a crowd, that’s a different type of money.

"If you want a big event, that’s a different type of money."
