You’re Going to Want to Watch the Mike Tyson Lip Synch Battle this Thursday on Spike (Video)

Mike Tyson lip synch battle? I guess we’ll file this one under “boxing,” since Mike Tyson used to be a boxer. But make no mistake: this post has absolutely nothing to do with the Sweet Science.

This Thursday at 10/9c, Mike Tyson, former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, will be on Spike’s Lip Synch Battle taking on Terry Crews of Everybody Hates Chris and Brooklyn Nine-Nine fame.

To pique our interest in this spectacle, Spike has released a 20-second teaser of Tyson’s performance. And, while this teaser was ultimately unnecessary since I went and set my DVR the moment I read the words “Mike Tyson lip synch battle,” the sight of Tyson jumping and humping and pumping his fists in the air to Salt N Peppa’s “Push It”—while wearing spandex leggings no less—well, that just made my day.

Take a look:

There doesn’t appear to be much actual lip synching going on here. But there was plenty of enthusiasm, and I have a feeling Iron Mike is still going to come away with the victory over poor Terry Crews.
