He said: “If somebody’s with me, I find out he thought I was a fat motherf***er and didn’t tell me, I wouldn’t be his friend no more.

“You say body shaming hurts some people, it helps me. I never looked at it as fat shaming.”

Former undisputed heavyweight champion Iron Mike, one of the greatest boxers of all-time, is set to fight Roy Jones Jr in an exhibition match.

Iron Mike, who owns a 40-acre cannabis farm in California, has had a career dogged in controversy.

He was convicted of raping a beauty pageant contestant in 1992 and was jailed for three years.

Tyson bit part of Evander Holyfield’s ear off in their clash in 1997.

The New York pugilist blew his £330million fortune and was declared bankrupt in 2003.

But he has worked hard on his image physically and mentally and is now in the greatest shape he has been in since the late 1980s.
