Former boxing heavyweight champion Mike Tyson may be 53 years old, but he's still on the list of the most terrifying-looking people on the planet.

Case in point: He's retained some of the speed and power that made him the most feared fighter in the world during the 1980s, as evidenced by this five-second clip:

Former NBA player and basketball analyst Rex Chapman provided an accurate response:

I want none of Iron Mike Tyson at age 23, 53, or even 83... https://t.co/nE40WRGFae

Would you spar with Mike Tyson for $100,000? Who'd you like to see him fight? (🎥: @MikeTyson) Listen to #FastTrack now with @LAIreland & @KamBrothers on 710 AM ESPN https://t.co/jyxlHgKdmK

The price may never be high enough for some people to fight Tyson, who won his first 37 professional fights (33 by knockout or TKO). He had nine successful title defenses from 1987-89 before losing in an upset to Buster Douglas in 1990.

Iron Mike finished 50-6 with 44 knockouts and two no-contests for his career, which ended in 2005.
