The boxing world is in for a treat as two former greats of the sport are ready to battle it out in the ring one more time. Former undisputed World Heavyweight Champion Mike Tyson will be taking on former four-division World Champion Roy Jones Jr. in an exhibition match that will take place on November 28, 2020, in Staples Center, Los Angeles, California.
Although the fight has seen a lot of criticism from many ex-players and pundits, everyone is nothing but excited to witness Mike Tyson and Roy’s legend once again. Many fans were seen reacting like a true fan of Mike’s grueling training videos on social media platforms where he was seen hitting some power-packed punches. It might just seem like seeing Mike fight was just days ago, but it has actually been over a decade since we’ve seen him in the ring last time. At 54, it will be an amazing feat to have an attempt at this fight.
Both the players are taking this fight quite seriously, which is evident by their training videos that have come up lately. The only upsetting fact to this match-up is that the rules have been changed, keeping both men’s safety in mind, which has led to the fight consisting of 10 rounds, which are going to 2 minutes each instead of the usual 3. Also, there will be no knockouts allowed in the fight as both the players are above 50 years of age. There will be no official ruling of the fight; hence, no winners will be announced too. The new rules came to the disappointment of many boxing fans who needed to see some power punches thrown by the two greats.
