Mike Tyson Reveals 100-Pound Weight Loss as He Rips Off Shirt During Live Interview

Mike Tyson is ready to show off his impressive gym goals.

During an interview on Good Morning America on Monday, Nov. 23, the 54-year-old boxer was so excited to show off his amazing physique that he spontaneously took off his hoodie to reveal his bare chest.

The once Heavyweight Champion of the world told GMA's T.J. Holmes, "This is where it's at, man! This is where it's at. This is where it's at, brother." Earlier in the interview, Mike accredited his weight loss and muscle gains to exercise and his wife's encouragement.

"I became a vegan. My wife told me to get on a treadmill," he explained. "I went from 15 minutes on the treadmill and ended at two hours." He also spoke about how "difficult" it was to get to where he is now, but the former champ is no stranger to hard work.

"I had to lose 100 pounds," Mike recalled. "But other than that I've always done this my whole career."

This is the second time this month the boxer has received praise for his positive outlook.

During a Nov. 21 conversation with Central Ave, Dwyane Wade spoke highly about Mike and thanked him for supporting his 13-year-old daughter Zaya, who came out as transgender last year.

As fans may recall, rapper Boosie Badazz has publicly misgendered Zaya multiple times and spewed transphobic comments in regards to Dwyane's parenting skills.

In October, Mike appeared on the "Wipe Me Down" rapper's Hotboxin' podcast and criticized him for his remarks. He asked the 38-year-old, "What happened to you that you think that you're somebody that can comment on somebody's life?"

Dwyane appreciated Mike for taking a stand, calling him "so educated and knowledgeable about life" and noting, "For him to be able to drop that nugget on the world, to me, it was great to hear him say that."
