Mike Tyson might be well into his fifties now, but he still has the moves to prove that he is one of the best boxing champs in the world. He showcased his famous skills on Instagram with a video clip taken during a session with an unexpected sparring partner, Mars Tyson. The pooch is quite adorable, but he, too, is amazed at his dad’s frightening speed.
Mars has his own Instagram account where the video was uploaded. It shows the fluffy white pooch willingly participating at first when Mike engages him in a playful boxing session. He even wagged his tail. But as soon as the boxing legend got quite serious and did his distinctive peek-a-boo technique, Mars had the good sense to flee.
The caption explained why Mars chose to run away. It stated that the pooch decided to go easy on Mike. Nevertheless, the extraordinary and loving relationship between the two was simply adorable as the end of the video showed Mars showering Mike with sweet puppy kisses.
Loyal fans of the former world champion in heavyweight boxing immediately sympathized with the poor doggo. They praised Mars for being smart in escaping Mike’s signature moves and speed. One fan even admitted that he too spars with his dog, but since he doesn’t have Mike’s talent, his dog doesn’t flee.
Everyone was simply amazed that Mike has not lost his touch. He also showed his signature technique last year in a tweet by BT Sport, where he gamely took off his jacket to give an impromptu boxing lesson. Mike is one of the world’s most feared boxing athletes because of his famous peek-a-boo move.
Fans are quite impressed with Mike’s sustained agility. Some of them even felt like getting knocked out just from watching the videos. One even predicted that he would still be powerful and dangerous for a few more decades. You can watch the adorable video below.
