Mike Tyson is about to return to the ring in a special match up with Roy Jones Jr. The 54-year-old told GMA host TJ Holmes that he lost 100 pounds to prepare for it. A — in part by switch to a vegan diet and getting on the treadmill and running.

Tyson explained more about the process of losing all that weight, noting the prep for the upcoming fight has been similar to those during his boxing career except for the drive to lose the extra pounds. The powerful boxer said (below):

“I’ve really been getting in shape. I became a vegan. My wife told me to get on a treadmill. I went from 15 minutes on the treadmill and ended at two hours. It was very difficult only for one particular reason. I had to lose 100 pounds. But other than that I’ve always done this my whole career, [and I’m] feeling good.”

Mike Tyson ended up showing and proving how much his training and new discipline has made him return to powerhouse form.
