You remember. He would stay up very late on Saturday night to watch “Iron” Mike, the great heavyweight, the man capable not only of beating all the opponents who put him in front but of sinking them with his right hook with a power rarely seen in professional boxing.
Mike Tyson (54 years old) returns to the shed today to face nothing more and nothing less the best boxer of the nineties, the great Roy Jones Jr. (51 years old), the only man who conquered in a staggered way, the world champion belts, starting from the super welterweight category to heavyweight.
Jones has more wins than Mike
Roy Jones Jr. has been overshadowed by Tyson’s presence in a fight aimed at generating resources for various charities. Jones finished his career with a mark of 66 wins and 9 losses, his last fight was in February 2018 against Scott Sigmon who won by unanimous decision.
Tyson, on the other hand, said goodbye to professional boxing in 2005, with a record of 50 wins, six losses, and 44 knockouts. The last time he stepped into a ring, he did so against Kevin MacBride, his final victory two years earlier against Clifford Ettiene.
The fight, which may well be classified as an exhibition, will last about 16 minutes, as long as none of them get out of the script and there is no KO, something that with these exponents would not be surprising, although the Los Angeles State Athletic Commission, California has established limits due to the age of the contestants should not produce a Ko., However, nothing is written. The fight, whatever happens, will not have a winner, despite the fact that three judges have been invited to deliver a verdict virtually.
