Mike Tyson is returning to the boxing ring after fifteen years against another veteran legendary boxer, Roy Jones Jr. Tonight, both legends will prove that age is just a number as both men are 50+ years old.
Tyson’s nemesis in WWE and AEW, Chris Jericho, has sent a message to him. Le Champion sent the champ a good luck message and a small warning too.
Mike Tyson and Chris Jericho have never seen eye to eye. In the WWE or now in AEW, both legends have always been on opposite sides.
Back in 2011, Mike Tyson had returned to WWE to be a special guest referee between DX and Jeri-show. Tyson helped DX win by knocking Jericho out. The two would face nine years later at the ‘land of the elite.’
Tyson has now returned to the boxing ring after more than a decade. While this match will be iconic, it may not live up to the match they could have had in their younger days. Here are the rules for this highly awaited encounter.
The rules for the highly awaited exhibition fight have been confirmed. There will be eight rounds of two minutes each and both are battling for the Frontline belt.
The California State Athletic Commission confirmed that there will be no headgear since both fighters decided against it. Both legends will wear 12-ounce gloves rather than the normal 10 ounces.
The WBC representative judges will score the fight, as there are no official judges from the CSAC. The most bizarre rule is that knockouts are not allowed and both fighters will restrain themselves from using the knockout punch.
If any boxer gets a major cut, it will cause a stoppage. The referee will rightly have the authority to stop if both legends don’t treat the match as an exhibition.
