Today, Joe Rogan released a brand new episode of his podcast which features the likes of Tyson. In the episode, the two spoke about a plethora of topics, including Tyson’s decision to step back in the ring.

As he started to work out again, he felt rejuvenated and felt like it was time to get his conditioning in order.

Tyson also admitted that it wasn’t the easiest process as the first few workouts knocked the wind out of him and left him in bed for quite some time. However, Tyson was committed to getting back on track and that’s exactly what he did, much to the amazement of Rogan.

Tyson and Jones Jr. will be fighting each other in November, which is sure to be an exciting bout.
