The exhibition fight featuring the two boxing legends in Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr is taking place in Los Angeles on November 28.
Fifty-four-year-old Iron Mike steps back into the ring for the first time in over 15 years to fight arguably one of the greatest to ever lace up a pair of gloves in Roy Jones Jr.
As it is classed as an exhibition fight, the bout will take place in eight two-minute rounds, with both fighters “exhibiting their skills” in the ring.
Though both fighters agreed with the state commission to not look for a knockout victory, both have stated otherwise in interviews leading up to the fight.
‘Iron’ Mike said: “This is going to be my definition of fun… broken eye sockets, broken jaw. That’s fun to me.”
Going by his recent body transformation and how dangerous he looks in training, his threats seem pretty serious… poor Jones Jr!
