Tyson has been training since March for his return, under the guidance of MMA coach Rafael Cordeiro.

But the Reformed Baddest Man on The Planet called in the help of retried former UFC champion Henry Cejudo, 33, and pro wrestler Angle, 51.

Angle shared a picture of all three on Instagram, and wrote: “#SmartCups Ambassadors @henry_cejudo @miketyson and yours’ truly, at a training session today.”

Further footage shared online by pad man Cordeiro revealed Tyson’s intense training session as he fired off quick combinations and explosive footwork.

His pay-per-view return faced the axe after it was moved by two months having previously been set for September.

He said: “I said what I said and I meant what I said. I’m no fool and I’m not going to be treated like one.

“Come November 28, now I get to go act the fool which is what I want to do anyway.

“So now they gave me a new term, a new date, and a new chance to act the fool which is what I love to do anyway.”
