Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr gave everyone a very entertaining 8 round exhibition bout that ended in a draw on Saturday night.
Tyson and Jones Jr. fought an 8-round exhibition match with a smaller ring, smaller gloves, and shorter round duration than is standard for non-exhibitions. Iron Mike, 54, hadn’t fought since 2005 prior to facing Jones Jr., whom himself hasn’t fought since 2018.
Both warriors showed flashes of their glory days. Tyson occasionally landed his trademark left hook at a distance while Jones showed flashes of his old self with no-look jabs and showboating to boot.
Jones didn’t come out swinging as much as Tyson but he did have some good placement shots. In the end, the judges couldn’t decide on a winner.
