Mike Tyson teaches Henry Cejudo his iconic uppercut in new training footage

Iron Mike looks in incredible shape as he hammers the pads in training

Boxing icon Mike Tyson is currently in the best physical shape he has been in for many years ahead of his much-anticipated comeback.

The legendary New York-born fighter is expected to take part in several charity exhibition bouts, with the 53-year-old rigorously linked with a trilogy fight against Evander Holyfield.

Regardless of whether Tyson's return is simply a marketing ploy, it's just great to see Iron Mike back in fighting shape.

In the past few months, numerous clips of Tyson in training have emerged and they have highlighted that the American has not lost the impeccable technique and brute power that made him the youngest ever heavyweight champion.

The latest footage from the Tyson camp shows the former boxer teaching ex-UFC star Henry Cejudo how to replicate his iconic uppercut.

After a little masterclass from Iron Mike on the body bag, the former UFC flyweight and bantamweight champ has a go for himself.

To be fair to Cejudo, he pretty much nails the technique, with Tyson saying "it's perfect" in response.

Cejudo also posted footage of his training session with the former 'Baddest Man on the Planet' on his official Instagram page.

This time, Tyson offers his expert advice on a punch combination, with Cejudo performing the task admirably once again.

Keep that head tucked in as you throw punches, Henry!

Cejudo walked away from the UFC back in May after his career-defining victory over Dominick Cruz courtesy of a knockout in the second round.

Ever since, 'Triple C' has hinted at a potential switch to boxing to fight lightweight prodigy Ryan Garcia.

“I think I’ve done everything in MMA, Olympic champ, flyweight champ, bantamweight champ, I’ve defended both of my titles," Cejudo told TMZ. "I think the only one I want to do it is to make Ryan Garcia bend the knee.”

Be careful what you wish for, Henry. A few training sessions with Iron Mike will almost certainly not be enough to nullify a boxer of Garcia's quality.
