Mike Tyson appeared to almost knock his trainer clean out with a series of ferocious punches in his latest training video ahead of his comeback fight against Roy Jones Jr.

Tyson, 54, and Jones, 51, are set to go head-to-head in an eight round exhibition in California on November 28.

Ahead of the bout, Iron Mike has been teasing fans with regular clips of himself getting prepared with trainer Rafael Cordeiro.

In the latest clip, which was shared by Tyson on his Instagram story, the Brazilian coach almost got more than he bargained for, with Tyson narrowly missing his face with numerous blows. 

Cordeiro was clearly taken aback by the fury of Tyson's punches, looking shocked and ducking his head out of the way.

Tyson's ferocious training videos have prompted a number of former boxers to worry for the safety of Jones in their upcoming fight.

Commenting on the most recent video, WBO junior lightweight champion Jamel Herring said: "Somebody send Mike a reminder that this is an exhibition."

Danny Williams, the last boxer to knock Tyson out before his retirement, also recently predicted that Jones will "get seriously hurt" by Tyson.

Even Jones himself seems worried, admitting that he may have "made a mistake" by agreeing to the fight because Tyson is "the bigger" and more "explosive guy."
