Watch Full Fight Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr PPV 2020 Live Streaming On Twitter round-by-round updates Boxing TV Coverage
54-year-old Mike Tyson and 51-year-old Roy Jones Jr. return to the ring in an eight-round legends exhibition.
Two of boxing’s all-time greats will return to the boxing ring on Saturday under rather unique circumstances.
Former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson and one-time heavyweight champ and four-weight world titleholder Roy Jones Jr. will meet in an exhibition fight, meaning the rules will not be like that of a typical “official” contest.
Many of the changes were made only recently. The most notable is that there will be no knockouts. In addition, the bout will be stopped immediately if there are any cuts sustained by either man. And though there will be no official judges or “winner”, per se, the WBC are set to provide ex-fighters in a ceremonial judging capacity, presumably to give the paying audience some sort of conclusion.
The exhibition, originally set for September but pushed back in order to maximize preparations, was already shifted into a format of eight two-minute rounds because Tyson and Jones, 54 and 51 respectively, are opting not to wear headgear.
