Mike Tyson releases dance track for Roy Jones Jr fight with crazy vid and 'lend me your ears or I'll eat them' lyricsOctober 23, 2020
MIKE TYSON will walk out to his own song in his exhibition bout against Roy Jones Jr on November 28.
The 54-year-old – who hasn't fought since losing against Kevin McBride in July 2005 – has teamed up with Tiki Lau to create a dance track for his return to the ring.
A bizarre music video of the song – titled 'Mike Tyson' – has been released ahead of next month's fight, showing a cartoon version of the heavyweight knocking out a shark.
And he can even be seen pitting his wits against Godzilla on the beach while wearing a gul mask and snorkel.
One of the lyrics in the song hears Tyson say 'lend me your ears or I'll eat them' – a reference to his infamous bite incident during his bout against Evander Holyfield in 1997.
Tyson also brags how he is the 'most destructive fighter to ever live' having knocked out 44 of his 58 opponents.
Indie-electro duo Tiki Lau have spoken of how the song was created, as they said: "Our multi-platinum Grammy-winning and legendary Tiki Lau team member Damon Elliott was in the studio with Mike Tyson and had him record the vocals then sent them over to us.
"Damon is like the DJ Khaled of our group. They knew we were ready to deliver, and we did.
"You can’t help but get super pumped up when listening to this song."
Tyson – who famously sang 'In the Air Tonight' by Phil Collins in the 2009 smash-hit film The Hangover – recently revealed he hated pop king Michael Jackson.
Speaking on T.I.’s expediTIously podcast, the former world champion said: “I met Mike one day, I think he was at a concert in Cleveland, I’m with Don King.
“So me and Don come in, right? And I’m champ and everything, did all this s***, undisputed.
“So Don goes and Don gives Michael Jackson the ‘peace’ sign, like this. And then so Michael gives Don the ‘peace’ sign, and so I give Michael the ‘peace’ sign, and Michael put his hand down.
“In a way, I say, ‘Did he play me? Nah, he didn’t play me, he just didn’t see me. I knew he didn’t play me, cause I’m f***ing champ.”
Before adding: “So we went backstage, right? So I’m backstage, and so there’s his backstage, some of his singers and stuff.
“He’s on stage, it’s over I’m signing autographs and stuff, so Michael comes over and he talks to Don, he doesn’t talk to me.
"I say ‘Let me just go on and meet Mike’, cause that’s really why I’m here, I want to meet Mike.
“And then I go over to meet Mike, … and he goes like this, ‘Don’t I know you from somewhere? Where I know you from?’
“He broke my ego, he crushed me. I said ‘No, I’m just a fan, pleasure to meet you, sir. He said, ‘OK’, and then he got out and went in the car.”
