Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. Preview
Mike Tyson is going to reappear in-ring after a hiatus of 15 long years. ‘Iron’ Mike last fought against Kevin McBride in 2005. He lost the fight via RTD and hung up his boxing gloves, boasting a pro record of 50 wins and 6 losses.
After 15 years, Tyson claims to have found the fire back, as he is ready to dance inside the squared circle once again. ‘The Baddest Man on Planet Earth’ had been teasing his return for months and linked himself with umpteen names including the likes of Evander Holyfield, Shannon Briggs, and even UFC elite Jon Jones.
After massive speculations, Tyson finalized his bout against Roy Jones Jr. via face-time. The duo signed their respective contracts and energized the fans with an epic movie-like real-life scenario.
While many consider Tyson to be the favorite, Roy Jones Jr. has his fanbase, who believes ‘Captain Hook’ would defeat Tyson. Roy Jones Jr. retired from pro boxing two years ago in 2018, after he beat Scott Sigmon via decision.
Despite relishing on a four-fight win streak, Roy Jones Jr. decided to relinquish his journey. However, its 2020 and he is back again to set foot against Tyson. Roy Jones Jr. boasts a professional record of 66 wins and 9 losses. That said, the 51-year-old can impose a lot of threat to the 54-year-old Mike Tyson.
While fans continue to speculate the results of the high-voltage fight, the alarming heavyweights are seemingly getting ready for the upcoming action.
