Former heavyweight world champion Mike Tyson has been warned that his planned return to boxing could spell doom for him.
At 53, Tyson's impressive speed and ferocity in film block training has fueled speculation that he is about to return to square strings.
Rafael Cordeiro, the trainer holding the pads during Tyson's training, said: "The power is at a different level. I didn't expect to see what I saw – I saw a guy with the same speed, the same power as a 21, 22 boy. years. "
However, the last time someone was fighting back Tyson gave up his stool against Kevin McBride in his last fight in 2005.
Speaking at 5 Live Boxing Bunce said, “There are probably hundreds of men over the age of 14 who are boxing around the world who would easily beat Tyson now.
"That's the truth. Unless he fights another 53-year-old man, where they are both walking through molasses, after a minute it will be awful.
“There are some fighters at 24 and others at 34; they realize inside that they didn't understand it. So, the longer they get away from the sport, they start to forget that feeling they had when they realized they didn't have it. "
Bunce added: “Tyson can be 20 years out of the gym and look amazing when he loses two stones to a man who makes him look good on the pillows. I can assure you that, within 30 seconds of a real fight with anything like real gloves, no matter what the opposition is in the other corner, he will become a 53 year old man again.
"It's boxing, you don't play that. It's serious."
