The former world heavyweight champion blew his huge fortune during his professional career.
There are slight changes in the regular boxing rules for the fight between 53-year-old Tyson and Jones Jr. who is already 51 - as both legends continue to trade words.
Tyson, 54, hasn't fought since his crushing defeat to Kevin McBride in 2005, when he retired. Jones last fought in February 2018, beating Scott Sigmon by unanimous decision.
That hasn't stopped Tyson from going all out to prepare for the bout.
"I know fighting, I know boxing, and I've studied Tyson and Roy Jones", Adesanya told Sports Illustrated.
The main card of Saturday's night of boxing at Staples Center in Los Angeles is scheduled for 9 p.m. ET. Coming into this fight against Tyson, Jones Jr. has won 12 of his last 13 fights and he is now riding a four-fight win streak.
FITE has acquired the rights to show Tyson vs. Jones Jr.in the USA and Canada via their various platforms (FITE.tv and its streaming apps), as well as on TysonOnTriller.com, which will serve as the central hub for the legends event.
Details for watching the fight will be available on here later in the week.
The Tyson vs. Jones pay-per-view event costs $49.99 in the U.S. The event can be ordered at FITE.TV, TysonOnTriller.com and major cable/satellite TV providers.
In his interview with Barrasso, Adesanya expressed his thankfulness for getting the opportunity to be there, sharing that he never thought he'd see Tyson compete again. People are now going to expect what it was originally set to be a simple exhibition. Even though it's an exhibition, no headgear will be required.
