Mike Tyson prepared for his exhibition bout with Roy Jones Jr. on Saturday by eating cake in the shape of his opponent's head.

In a YouTube video titled Thanksgiving with the Tysons, Iron Mike showed the specially made cake before poking fun at one of the most infamous moments in his career by taking a bite out of the ear.

Tyson was sure to get in some trash talk, calling the cake "a turkey" before revealing it to his kids.

Saturday marks the first time Tyson has been in a sanctioned boxing match since an exhibition in 2006. His last professional bout came in June 2005 against Kevin McBride, which he lost by technical knockout after failing to answer the bell for the seventh round.
