The Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Jr event has got more exciting with the latest announcement. The two legends will be making their comeback in an exhibition fight on November 28 at the Staples Center. They will compete in an eight-round fight for the Frontline Battle Belt. Despite this, Triller has only gone and added to the event.
Triller released a statement confirming the presence of Wiz Khalifa, DaBaby, Lil Wayne, French Montana, as well as YG at the historic event. The artists will perform multiple songs on the high-profile fight card. However, Bobby Sarnevesht, who is the executive chairman of Triller, is confident that this move will add to the success.
He said, “The connection between boxing and music is undeniable. As a global language, music unites cultures, and we knew this historical moment needed to include some of the biggest names in the industry. Unparalleled to any other entertainment platform in the space, Triller is determined to give fans a night they will never forget,”
The rappers also expressed their delight. Lil Wayne said, “This event is going to go down in history, no doubt! I’m grateful to be a part of it and share the arena with two living legends. I’m stoked to perform and give the fans something they can rock to.”
Wiz Khalifa also joined in and said, “Nov 28th, I’m putting on a live show and watching two of the greats lace up their gloves, thanks to Triller,”
French Montana also said, “Thank you to Triller for giving me the opportunity to perform on this historic night, in the same arena as these boxing legends. It’s truly a moment. I’m honored and can’t wait to see Tyson and Jones fight.”
The event will be headlined by the Tyson and Jones Jr fight. However, there will be three undercard fights featuring Badou Jack, YouTube sensation Jake Paul and former NBA star Nate Robinson. The fight will be live on www.tysonontriller.com and fans will be able to watch the artists perform on the same PPV purchase. Thus, it is one event fans can not miss in 2020. Do you think this move from Triller will be a hit or miss?
