The boxing legend sat down with ex-NFL star Terrell Owens for his 'Hotboxin with Mike Tyson' podcast and discussed the 'leeches' of fame.
It saw 'Iron Mike' lay out exactly what he looks for when it comes to an inner circle of confidants.
He begun per The Sun: "If people in your life and they don't have a purpose, what the f*** they in your life for?
"Anybody can be on the corner and say, 'Hey Mike, do this, do that'. But who's gonna suffer? Who's going to make this a better situation?
"I'm champ and I got money, what are you going to do to make this situation better?
"I'm a champ and I got all this money. I got $50 million, say $50 million, and I'm a young guy, 19 years old, what are you going to do to make this clan better?
"This situation I'm in, I'm young with a bunch of millions. How are you going to make it better? What are you going to do?
"That's my thing, when I'm in somewhere and I see a room and the room's dirty, I start cleaning the room.
"I want to do whatever I can to make this a better situation."
TMZ Sports approached the Brooklyn-native asking about a return and he replied: "I'm gonna fight Lennox Lewis... September."
Many are unsure if the 54-year-old is just having some fun right now, with video footage showing him to be quite unenthusiastic.
But the prospect of Tyson mixing it up again with a former rival certainly is appealing.
Lewis defeated Tyson back in 2002 via eighth-round knockout when they faced off at the Pyramid Arena in Memphis, Tennessee.
He was asked about facing Tyson for a second time late last year and told TMZ: "If the public wanted it then we would probably talk."
