Mike Tyson appeared to “lose his cool” with a production crew filming a promotion for his comeback fight against Roy Jones Jr.
The youngster ever heavyweight champion, who won his first belt at 20 years old in 1986, is preparing to step back into the ring after 15 years of retirement.
And the American has shared his incredible progress on Instagram, posting clips of his muscular form punching with brutal power.
But footage has now emerged which suggests the 54-year-old’s temper has also made the return journey.
In the clip, the former heavyweight champion is asked for a song and a move that gets him “pumped up”.
But Tyson gave a brutal response, saying: “I don’t wanna do this. It’s really not me. I wouldn’t be saying this b*******.
“I’m not going to ask him to be playing no song or movie or what he likes. You wanna sell the fight, we’re not gonna sell it talking f***ing nursery rhymes, f***ing novel stuff.
“A f***ing joke and these guys are not trying to kill each other. Hey, what song or movie gets you pumped up, baby? Come on, man. That’s me? That’s what you consider me. You consider me a b****?”
Tyson went on to explain his approach to the the fight, which will see him go up against 51-year-old Jones Jr who last fought two years ago.
“This is the name of fighting – we want to kill each other, man.,” Iron Mike added.
“The people are coming to see us fight because we want to kill each other.
“They’re f***ing savages – they want blood.”
It comes as the fight, originally scheduled for September 12, has been pushed back to November in a bid to get more money from pay-per-view.
In a statement: “Changing the date to November 28th will give more people the opportunity to see the biggest comeback in boxing history.
“This temporary inconvenience will last longer than Roy Jones Jr. He better be ready, I’m coming full force.”
It comes as Tyson is already considering his next fight as he eyes a UFC contest against Conor McGregor.
