Mike Tyson, who makes his return to the ring on 19 August in Las Vegas after serving a three-year jail term, has revealed his strategy for the comeback contest with Peter McNeeley.

"I am going to do my thing, and you know what my thing is," he said at his first major news conference since the promoter Don King announced a six-fight, $35m (pounds 22m) deal for the former heavyweight champion.

Tyson, 26, jailed in March 1992 for the rape of a beauty pageant contestant, insisted he has not been humbled by his experience. "I'm just more secure in what I do," he explained.
