'Iron' Mike hopes to take advantage of their popularity for a good cause for people who "desperately" need it.
When asked about the modern heavyweights by Steve Bunce, the American replied: "I think they're brilliant. They're brilliant fighter.
"They could do so much for society."
He continued: "They could have exhibitions, and take the money from the exhibitions, because they're such big crowd pleasers, and they could help so many people.
"There's so many people out there that we can do so much for, and it wouldn't even be a tenth of their charitable heart to do something like that.
"In fact, fight exhibitions with me, and most of our charity would go to people who desperately need it.
"I want you to label them as exhibitions because there's no hard feelings."
Tyson hasn't fought since 2005 when he suffered a crushing defeat to Kevin McBride.
But the former heavyweight world champion looks in phenomenal shape ahead of his comeback and insists his charity bout with Jones Jr is bigger than him.
"It has a charity exponent and I look at that as bigger than me," he added.
"Buying a new car, a new girlfriend, a new mansion, a new plane... that doesn't do it for me anymore. It just doesn't work."
