Mike Tyson isn't taking his upcoming exhibition fight against Roy Jones Jr. lightly. 

The former heavyweight champion released a new training video showing off a five-punch combination:

Tyson is returning to the boxing ring for the first time since 2006 to take on Jones. The eight-round exhibition will take place on Nov. 28 at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California. 

Per TMZ Sports, the bout is expected to be the first in a series of events for the Legends Only League founded by Tyson, Sophie Watts, Johnny Ryan Jr. and Eros Innovations. 

Tyson's last fight was an October 2006 exhibition against Corey Sanders that was designed to kick off a world tour to help Iron Mike pay off debts. 

Jones, 51, retired from professional boxing in February 2018 after defeating Scott Sigmon by unanimous decision.
