Mike Tyson Accidentally Punches Rafael Cordeiro In The Face During A Training Session

Source - The hype for Mike Tyson’s return to the ring continues to grow, one wild training video at a time.

In the most recent clip, the 54-year-old once known as the “baddest man on the planet” nearly takes a trainer’s head off with a powerful right hook.

“Precision!” Rafael Cordeiro of Kings MMA in California captioned the video on Instagram. Judging by the lighthearted caption, Cordeiro seems to be OK after the big blow.

Tyson is scheduled to face Roy Jones Jr. in an eight-round exhibition bout on Nov. 28 in Carson City, Calif. But it may be hard for Tyson to hold back.

The video: 

Well that has to be about a worst case scenario for any trainer, right? Especially if you're training a guy like Mike. Who, according Roy Jones Jr. and anyone with eyes, is "one of the strongest, most explosive people to ever touch a boxing ring." 

Here's what he told Sky Sports about the upcoming fight...

“If anything, I made a mistake going in with him. He’s the bigger guy, he’s the explosive guy. He’s going to have all the first-round fireworks, not me. I do have first-round fireworks, but he’s known for more first-round fireworks than anybody to ever touch boxing, other than maybe George Foreman. With him having the first-round fireworks, he’ll be against a guy smaller than him, maybe 40-50 pounds smaller than him.”

And here was Tyson's response…

“My definition of fun is broken eye sockets, broken jaw, broken ribs. That’s fun to me,” Tyson said last month on the “Dan Patrick Show” when asked how much fun he wanted to have with the fight.

Should be a good one! Fingers crossed things go off without a hitch and they're both good to go by November 28th. If you haven't already watched Tyson's latest interview on Rogan, make sure to check it out. Well worth the time if you're a boxing fan.
