Former Boxing World Heavyweight Champion "Iron" Mike Tyson announced his comeback to the sport last week and credits his impressive physique and stamina to following a plant based diet for the last decade. He has made headlines with his ripped physique as he trains with UFC fighters Henry Cejudo and Vitor Belfort in the US.
Tyson, 53, follows the example of another former Heavyweight Champion David Haye, who publicly credited his transition to a plant based lifestyle as a key part of his later career. Haye was featured in the plant based athletes documentary "The Game Changers" with fellow boxer Bryant Jennings, who has been plant based for 5 years.
