Jamie Foxx revealed his newly bulked-up physique as he prepares for his role as Mike Tyson in an upcoming biopic on the famed boxer. In an appearance on “Catching Up with Mark Birnbaum,” the actor revealed how much he’s transformed his body in preparation for the film. Foxx said his daily workout consists of 60 pull-ups, 60 dips, 100 push-ups. “It’s changing the body. [The] top half,” he said. As for the lower body he said, “I ain’t got no legs, I ain’t got no calf muscles so we’re gonna have to get some prosthetics for that.”

According to Foxx, he’ll begin filming at 216 when he depicts the young “Iron” Mike Tyson but will “balloon to 225, 230 which will look like 250 on-screen,” when he portrays the older Tyson.
