Mike Tyson looks in top shape aged 55 as boxing legend heads to St Barts for beach holiday with family and friends

MIKE TYSON looked in excellent shape as he enjoyed a pre-Christmas break on the beach in St Barts.

Iron Mike, 55, is soaking up the sun on the Caribbean island with friends and family ahead of the festive period.



The American was joined by at least two women as the group strolled along on the beach.

Knockout hero Tyson wore a white shirt and socks with black swim shorts.

And he was seen smiling as he chatted to fellow beachgoers.

Earlier this week, it emerged Tyson would KO sparring partners ASAP in order to get home and watch Tom and Jerry.

Tyson often managed to turn five hour sparring sessions into sub-60 minute destructions because he was desperate to watch cartoons.

That is the insight from Tyson’s confidante, ex-bodyguard and chauffeur Rudy Gonzalez, who had a ringside seat at fights and home battles during the New Yorker’s rise to infamy.

Gonzalez exclusively told SunSport: “When we trained in Vegas his sparring sessions were from 12 to 5pm.

"He would be the nicest guy beforehand asking the sparring partners: 'How you doing today, how’s the family?'

"Then he would just knock out five guys all out so within an hour so there was nobody left.

"I saw him punch the heavy bag so hard it broke a few times from the chains and the other boxers would just leave saying: ‘we are not f****** with you today. I do not care how much money you pay me.’

"Anyone who felt they were up for taking him on, he would hit them and they'd snap. Soon after they would pack their bags.

"So one day I asked: ‘Boss I am confused, isn’t this about working on techniques?

"He replied: ‘If I keep it going we will miss Tom and Jerry cartoons.’"

Super-human Tyson would also have sex just before fights as he was so scared he would kill his opponents.

Tyson was fuelled with so much pumping emotional energy that he would also cry before heading into the ring to eviscerate opponents in his heyday.
