Speaking on Good Morning America, he said: "It was difficult, but only for one particular reason: because I had to lose 100 pounds.

"But other than that, I've always done this my whole career."

When asked how he lost all that weight, he replied: "I became a vegan."

He added: "My wife [Lakiha Spicer] told me to get on the treadmill. So I went from 15 minutes on the treadmill and I winded up ending at two hours."

Tyson was linked with a host of fighters, including former foe Evander Holyfield, before opting to face Jones Jr.

And the rules have been laid out which equate to a hard sparring session between the American boxers.

No knockouts are allowed with Tyson insisting he'll be protecting himself at all times.

He continued: "I'm not trying to knock nobody out, but I'm trying to protect myself at all times."
