While the clip was incredibly impressive, Tyson has now revealed that the exertion left him bed-bound for a week in the aftermath.
Speaking to Joe Rogan on his podcast, Tyson explained: ‘Getting in shape and getting conditioned are two different animals. They don’t even belong in the same division of working out. Getting in shape is getting able to fit in your clothes.
