Two of the boxing greats of all time return to the boxing ring on Saturday under rather unique circumstances.
Heavyweight former undisputed champion Mike Tyson and one-time heavyweight champion and four-time world champion Roy Jones Jr. will meet in an exhibition fight, meaning the rules won’t be the same as in a typical “official” race.
Many changes have only recently taken place. The most notable is that there will be no rashes. In addition, the fight is stopped immediately if any person suffers a cut. And while it won’t be an official judge or “winner” on its own, the WBC plans to provide ex-combatants in a solemn judicial capacity, presumably to draw some conclusion for the paying audience.
The show, originally scheduled for September but squeezed back to maximize preparations, has already been moved to eight two-minute round formats because Tyson and Jones (54 and 51 and 51, respectively) chose not to wear headgear.
Both men came back in extraordinary form to the showdown, and Tyson expressed a desire to use the show as a starting point for a “Legends Only” brand of retired sports superstars, returning to what made them famous.
So you can watch the event, which also features YouTuber Jake Paul and three-time NBA dunk champion Nate Robinson.
