Tyson v Jones Jr

Updated: 29th November.. Mike Tyson and Roy Jones, two legends of the boxing ring, have been enticed out of retirement for one last dance. Wondering how to watch the fight live? Here’s everything you need to know…

When is the Tyson and Roy Jones Jr Fight?

For Australian fight fans, Sunday the 29th of November is the date to mark down in your diary. The fight is expected to start at approximately 5 pm AEST. The fight was initially set to take place in September but was rescheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic.  

Who Are Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr?

These fighters are without doubt two of boxing’s greatest. Mike Tyson (now 54 years old) is still the youngest fighter ever to win a Heavyweight World title, a feat he achieved at the tender age of 20. 

He reigned supreme as undisputed champ for three years between 1987 and 1990, renowned for his brutal over-the-top right hand.

Roy Jones Jr, now 51 years old, was an altogether different man in and out of the ring, but no less ruthless. 

He won world titles at three different weights (Middleweight, Super Middleweight, Light Heavyweight) and even has an Olympic Silver Medal to his name. He is easily considered one of the best boxers to have graced the squared circle.

Tyson v Jones Jr Rules

As this fight takes place in California it needed to be passed by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC). They agreed that the fight could take place as long as it was over 8×2 minute rounds.

The fight has been sold as an exhibition contest, however, no head protection will be worn and both fighters will wear 12oz gloves, the same weight they would have worn in their respective heydays.

But anyone expecting these two to step around the ring in an elaborate sparring session should think again. They will go at it – and go at it hard.
