Anyone who knows anything about boxing is definitely excited to hear about this upcoming match up.
Two legends, Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. are set to go head-to-head in an exhibition.
According to ESPN, “Former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson is making a comeback. Tyson, 54, will fight Roy Jones Jr. in an eight-round exhibition on Sept. 12 at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California. The bout will be broadcast on pay-per-view as well as multimedia platform Triller. According to a news release, Triller will also show a 10-part docuseries leading up to the bout.”
Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. have signed the official fight contract.
Mike signed his while smoking a joint.
Although this fight isn’t for a championship belt, both Tyson and Jones are training with intensity and intend on bringing a full effort in the ring.
People are already speculating that Jones is in way in over his head because although Tyson is older, he’s in much better physical condition that Roy Jones Jr.
At 50 plus years of age it’s definitely a risk for either one of them to step into the ring for full combat, but it does appear that Roy Jones Jr. needs to kick up the training a few notches if he wants a chance of beating Mike Tyson in September.
