Mike Tyson Returns with Exhibition Match Against Roy Jones Jr.

Mike Tyson is back! He will fight Roy Jones Jr. in an eight-round exhibition match on September 12th in California. Per ESPN’s Ariel Helwani:

“No fans in attendance, No headgear. Larger gloves, but they’re still working that out. Maybe 12 (ounces).”

A former heavyweight champion, Tyson worked his way into an incredible shape over recent months. He has been on the comeback trail for a while and looked fearsome in all of his training videos.

“The Baddest Man on the Planet” talked about his plans to fight again and his workouts in May:

“I do around two hours on cardio, I do the bike and I do the treadmill for an hour,” Tyson explained. “And then I do some light weights. I do around 300, 250 reps. And then I start my day with the boxing, and then I go in there and hit the mitts for 30 minutes, 25 minutes, trying to get into better condition.”


The 54-year-old appeared on a video interview with TMZ in May and credited his new physique to some kind of stem cell therapy.

Tyson was 50-6 with 44 knockouts in his career. His last fight was against Kevin McBride on June 11, 2005 at the MCI Center in Washington and he lost by corner stoppage because he could not answer the bell for the seventh round. McBride was called a “tomato can” by Tyson before the fight.

“I feel unstoppable now,” Tyson told Facebook Gaming recently.

“The gods of war have reawakened me. They’ve ignited my ego and want me to go to war again. Imagine I went out there and fought. I could help all these people and animals we’re talking about. That’s really what it’s about.”

Roy Jones Jr. was 66-9 with 47 knockouts in his career. He won his last fight via unanimous decision against Scott Sigmon on February 8, 2018 at the Civic Center in Pensacola, Florida.

“I know I’m 51 but I will fight somebody over 50. And I ain’t scared to fight nobody, nowhere, at no time. Headgear, no headgear, I don’t care. So just be aware, and be careful what you say,” Jones recently said on Instagram Live.
