Tyson confirmed his comeback against Jones Jr last week after 15 years in retirement and the veteran pair will do battle despite having a combined age of 105.
Tyson is taking part in a number of shows on the social media app and discussed the problems with his self-confidence.
In the latest episode, he said: "My ego’s f***ing with me and I’m saying, ‘N***a, you think you fly? You ain’t s***.
"An amateur can get in here and kick your ass, you better get on top of your game.
"You want to get embarrassed in front of these f***ing people?’
"Then the other ego says, ‘F*** you n***a, watch what I’m gonna do.'"
Tyson laughed and pointed to his head before joking: "You don’t know what goes on up here."
As reported by Mundo Deportivo, he said: "I know how to have fun in the ring, trying to do my best, but at the same time I know Mike.
"Mike is like a pitbull puppy.
"He gets lost in his mind and the only thing he knows is 'I'm going for the fight', that's the only thing he knows, going for the fight."
He told ESPN: "Mike is still just as dangerous as ever.
"He's still good, he has his speed, he still has his power, he's still highly explosive, so he's still a dangerous guy.
"It's going to be dangerous for all eight rounds. You've got to be ready to protect yourself because that's Mike Tyson."
Both the fight and Tyson's comeback itself have split opinion due to the age of those involved.
He told Sky Sports: "They haven't got to compete with the young lions of the division. We're bigger, stronger, science has improved so we have more technology."
