Mike Tyson getting into the fitness business in a way you might not have expected. An interesting move by the ex-champion.

The youngest heavyweight champion in boxing history is due to open up the ‘Mike Tyson Academy’ in Dubai as his latest venture.

It is understood the fitness academy will be a franchise that Tyson will look to bring elsewhere after Dubai.

It is thought that the facilities will provide for strength, cardio and functional training for participants. It will also have boxing training as part of it.

Tyson is no stranger to that part of the world and indeed most parts of the world. Perhaps being one of the most well travelled boxers ever.

Nowadays Tyson is living a more balanced life. By all accounts he has peace of mind and happiness after a whirlwind of a boxing career.
