Mike Tyson has shared footage on social media of training his son Miguel Leon Tyson as he hits the pads.

Miguel, 15, could be looking to follow in his father's footsteps as a professional boxer one day but Mike insisted he has "just started" and is only boxing to keep fit.

Mike became the youngest ever heavyweight champion at 20 years old with his defeat over Trevor Berbick in 1986.

Current WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder recently suggested he would "kick the hell outta" a peak Mike Tyson.

However, former Tyson opponent Lennox Lewis responded to that claim, telling Wilder he's never been in there with any fighter as "ferocious" as him before.
