Watch Mike Tyson's vicious boxing workout for Roy Jones Jr fight as 54-year-old claims 'if I fail I'm going to die'

MIKE TYSON warned 'if I fail I'm going to die' ahead of his fight with Roy Jones Jr.

The two veteran boxers – with a combined age of 105 – will go head-to-head in an exhibition bout on November 28.

Tyson retired in 2005, but the former Baddest Man on the Planet looks fighting fit ahead of his comeback.

The latest training footage shows the 54-year-old punishing his punch bag with a series of quick combos.

During the video, the American says that failure is not an option when he returns to the ring.

He said: "Anything I do, I put so much into it.

"If I fail, I'm going to die. How many people do that? That's what I like to do.

"I go all out. I play for keeps.

"You know, I'm the greatest fighter since the conception of God.

"How could I not take this opportunity up?

"I'm fighting Roy Jones Jr, do not miss it. I'm back."

Tyson recently revealed he is at his lightest, leanest and meanest since he was 18 years old

His gruelling workout regime includes 2000 decline sit-ups and 500 push-ups PER DAY.

Jones Jr, 51, has shockingly admitted 'death is a possibility' when he squares off against Tyson.

Tyson's trainer Rafael Cordeiro has insisted that Tyson could 'kill somebody' – even at the age of 54.

And the WBC have had to change the rules of the exhibition bout over safety concerns.

The fighters will now battle it out over eight two-minute rounds.

It has also been revealed that they will NOT be fighting for the WBC Front Line Battle Belt.

Iron will.
