Interestingly, Hollywood wants to bring the life of the former two-time heavyweight champ onto the big screen. The actor chosen to do justice with this role is Jamie Foxx. The 52-year-old recently opened up on his preparations for the iconic role.

However, it is never easy to do a biopic, as actors have to transform themselves according to the character. He said, “the first but biggest task is to transform the body.”

Furthermore, he also mentioned his insane workout routine. He said, “What I’m doing right now is changing the body. Now what I do every other day, I do 60 pullups, we do 60 dips, we do 100 pushups, changing the body.”

Notably, ‘Iron’ Mike was bestowed with a phenomenal body. The champ’s appearance was enough to create fear in the minds of the opponent. He made his first introduction to the boxing world as a kid with a tremendous physique and lethal power. However, it was not something that came to him effortlessly. It was hard work for  ‘Kid Dynamite’ in his teenage years that created a knockout-out machine. The boxing world was blown away as Tyson hijacked the ring and became the youngest heavyweight champ ever.
