Iron Mike, 54, is pulling on the gloves to battle fellow legend Jones Jr in a highly-anticipated exhibition bout that is already surpassing huge pay-per-view buys.
And he has decided to up the ante ahead of his comeback by sharing a snap of his pet pooch tucking into a cake designed in the face of his opponent.
Tyson set-up and runs an Instagram account in the name of his dog, Mars Tyson, and posted the shot on there just over 48 hours prior to fight night.
And he captioned it with: “Thanks to my best friend @miketyson for making this #thanksgiving the greatest. @royjonesjrofficial was delicious.”
Both the former heavyweight champ Jones Jr, 51, could have to call in pet sitters before dusting off their gloves to go one-on-one at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
Aside from boxing, the two share another common interest… they’re both animal lovers.
‘Iron Mike’ famously owned tigers, tends to pigeons and has a poodle he loves to work out with.
While Jones Jr is an expert snake handler, loves posing with roosters and has two Pit Bulls and a Golden Retriever.

And this is not the first time we have seen Tyson’s adorable poodle Mars.
Fans regularly saw him cheering his owner up on Instagram during lockdown.
Mars has his own Instagram page and has amassed an amazing 23,000-plus followers.
And he calls himself the ‘Baddest Doodle On The Planet’.
Jones Jr breeded Pit Bulls on his ranch in the past, and appears to currently have two.
A playful Golden Retriever has also been seen hanging out with Jones Jr.
Some have criticised the fight due to the fighters’ age and the fact that Tyson, in particular, has not boxed in over 15 years.
He wrote: “Numbers don’t lie.
“Haters are mad they can’t get numbers like this.
“Saturday is reckoning. Roy Jones Jr you better be ready.”
The report detailed how Tyson vs Jones Jr had broken pre-fight sales records for digital pay-per-view purchases.
