WATCH: Mike Tyson gives former UFC champ Henry Cejudo a boxing lesson

Mike Tyson was a revolutionary champion in the sport of boxing. Unlike other heavyweights, he was not that tall. The former champion must therefore face boxers taller than him. To face the opponents, “The Baddest Man on Planet” had developed his own style of boxing under the wings of the famous trainer, Cus D, Amato.

The champion mastered the art so well that he was the model of an ideal boxer at his peak. His footwork was so amazing that it’s even hard for modern combat sports warriors to show off. Recently, Tyson gave a boxing lesson to former UFC champion Henry Cejudo in the presence of trainer Rafael Cordeiro.

The 35-year-old caged warrior first interacted with the former two-time heavyweight champion.

He asked, “I’d like to know how come you actually got in because you’re a heavyweight that really was a heavyweight. What do I mean like you’re not a 285 heavyweight pounds falling off?You are 220 years old today.

To which Tyson replied, “It was for my benefit rather than being big and being who I am or for my benefit. You know it has nothing to do with styles or sides. It all depends on the morale of the fighter. The importance you should do is more important than heating, it is up to the individual. What is the significance of this? »

After a brief discussion, Tyson demonstrated how to fight low and closed spaces in boxing.

He laced up gloves and manifested the first “Kid dynamite” at the age of 55. He unloaded the jab-slip-uppercut combo onto the coach’s pads with smooth footwork. It was so fast that the 35-year-old UFC fighter couldn’t catch it in the first moment.

It was a lesson from Tyson’s boxing book so it was hard to learn because it’s not a basic combination punch. Hence, the former UFC champion asked Tyson to do it again. Tyson has therefore delivered a similar combo several times.
