Lennox Lewis has warned Mike Tyson about a large boxing ring, saying it could effect his strategy in his highly-anticipated comeback against Roy Jones Jr.
And his former foe Lewis has predicted that a large boxing ring may cause him problems.
The Brit, who beat Tyson in their world title bout back in June 2002, claims Jones Jr will be a handful with his speed if they fight in a large boxing ring.
Speaking to BT Sport, he said: "I think it's an interesting fight. They're doing it for charity - that's a good thing
"I didn't feel like we'd ever see Mike Tyson back in the ring. I thought he was very happy doing his other businesses around the world, being a movie star.
"Everybody loves Mike Tyson. Everybody loves Roy Jones. They just want to see them in the ring again. It's not a bad thing.
"At this age I actually think it's good that he can push himself to step back into the ring."
Lewis added: "You have to remember how Roy Jones is. Roy Jones is one of the quickest fighters out there. He moves around the ring. He's not going to be an easy target.
"This type of fight he's not looking to get hit. And I'm sure it's going to be a big ring so until Mike Tyson catches up with him, if he can catch up with him, we're going to see a good fight."
Tyson has flaunted his blistering power in a series of training videos.
