Shannon Briggs shared the footage on Instagram along with a message which read: "Look at em y'all!!! ABSOLUTE POWER!"

Many are fearing the worst for Jones Jr when he steps into the ring with 'Iron Mike' next month.

One user commented: "He looks in better shape now than he did when he retired which tells you the fire burns inside again."

A second person added: "He's done hibernating. Looks like old Mike is back. Be afraid."

While a third simply stated: "Mike is a damn monster."

The bout was originally set to be 24 minutes but the WBC have intervened and whittled it down to 16 minutes.

Jones Jr told Joe Rogan per Boxing Scene the decision was made due to both men's combined age, which is 105.

"They've got me doing eight two-minute rounds now," he begun. "That's to his [Tyson's] advantage too. Everything's to his advantage, that's to his advantage to.

"At this point, the fans are so excited about it, I wouldn't want to pull the rug from under the fans... and they [Team Tyson] will try and sue me. It's not really worth it, so I'm going to go in and do these two rounds, but I'm going to have to work a little bit faster than I expected to.

"They decided this just last week. They change stuff on me by the week. I think the WBC came in and said they want to put up some kind of title or something, so they want to cut it back to two minute rounds.

"They said something about the Arce and Chavez Sr fight, how fatigued they were after the fight and they feel like that's a safety measure.

"But what they don't realise is that the longer you keep Mike fresh, the more dangerous that is for me. I need to get Mike un-fresh quick, so that I can get out this danger zone.

"[Chavez Sr] and Arce fought a 'true' exhibition with headgear and big gloves, but they said they were so exhausted afterwards, that they felt that is what could inhibit somebody's health. I want it to be three minute rounds, it's safer for me."
