As if Tyson and Jones Jr weren’t big enough names, YouTubers and even a former NBA star will feature on the Los Angeles bill.
It’s due to be one hugely entertaining night of action, as two ring legends finally collide.
What Tyson and Jones Jr have said
“Now I’m doing it with a lot more enthusiasm because I’m doing it for someone else,” Tyson explained.
“Nobody has to ever worry about me getting rich, or getting jealous, or saying I’m doing this for money.
“I’m not getting anything. I just feel good doing this because I can.”Roy Jones hasn’t fought since 2018, having retired late in his career[/caption]
Jones Jr said: “I thought I was done.
“When I got the call from my team saying ‘Mike Tyson wants to fight you’ — that’s bucket-list material.
“Everywhere I go in life, people ask me ‘Hey, did you ever fight Mike Tyson?’ Now I don’t have to say ‘No’ no more.
“I’m so glad to get this opportunity because now I can say, ‘Yes, I did. I sure did.’
“And guess what? Tune in on the 28th, and you’ll see how it goes.”
