But 51-year-old Jones had insisted that he will keep up his guard as if it was a real fight because he is smaller in size than Iron Mike.

"It's a sparring session, but I'm taking no chances because I'm the small guy here," Jones told Yahoo.

"Andy Foster can't control Mike once Mike gets in the ring. I've got to defend myself like I'm in a real fight. If Mike goes out there and decides to start hammering, what am I supposed to do, look at Andy?

"Hell no! I've got to defend myself and get back in it. I have heard what Andy Foster said, but I also know what Mike said. I have to get myself ready for whatever Mike may bring. I have to be ready for war."
