“Getting fit and getting ready for a fight are two completely different things, “Iron Mike, 54, said in an interview with Joe Rogan. “These are two completely different levels of the training process. Getting in shape is getting back into your clothes. To prepare for a fight is to go beyond your capabilities. You can’t do this automatically. The emotional component of this is overwhelming».
“Let me tell you something about the first training video. I made this video and then lay in bed for a week. Thirty seconds, and I didn’t get out of bed for a week. It wasn’t funny at all, because I realized how serious it was».
Recall that Mike Tyson will resume his career on November 28, and his opponent in an exhibition Boxing match will be no less legendary Roy Jones Jr.
