They don’t call him “Iron” for nothing. Mike Tyson was spotted presumably working out with a steel cage at an LA beach this week. Yes, a steel cage. The former professional boxer, who turned 54 on June 30, bared his many tattoos and rock solid abs for the outdoor sweat session.

Tyson, who appeared to have on a weighted vest, sported a fully grown salt and pepper beard. His hands were wrapped in white tape as if he was about to hop in the ring with his old rival Evander Holyfield. And, that wouldn’t have been the craziest thing to happen, as Tyson noted in May that he’d consider a rematch with with Holyfield — for charity.
Tyson was seen flipping the massive steel cage across the sand in a separate video obtained by TMZ. He appeared to be filming some sort of project, as camera men and a crew (all of which wore masks) surrounded him on the beach. He was also seen carrying buckets of fish, tossing life rafts in the sand and wearing snorkeling equipment.

Tyson competed from 1985 to 2005, and was the undisputed world heavyweight champion from 1987 to 1990. He is also starring in an upcoming movie about his life, Finding Mike, with actor and singer Jamie Foxx set to play him. Back in June, the Oscar winner, 52, gave an update on the process of transforming his body to portray the boxing legend. Jamie shared a series of shirtless snaps of his buff bod looking very muscular as the biopic was heading into pre-production.
