As they prepared to fight in the ring, Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr showed off their impressive physiques.
Tyson will be hitting the ring for the first time since 2005, 15 years ago – when he was defeated by Kevin McBride in seven rounds.
With eight two-minute rounds scheduled, Iron Mike will take on Jones Jr on November 28 in Los Angeles.
Since some ferocious knockouts in his career, Tyson has been named the greatest heavyweight boxer of all-time.
In all, during his iconic career this weekend, he knocked out 44 fighters, which he would continue to add to the figure, despite the rules saying otherwise.
And the two warriors were weighed in, looking stunning for their ages.
Tyson, 54, weighed 220.4 pounds, while Jones Jr., 51, was 210.
The California State Athletic Commission has rules out knockouts, with the contest billed as an exhibition.
But with Tyson in the ring, the enforcement that could prove challenging has admitted to Iron Mike with his mentor Rafael Cordeiro will go in to fight.
In an interview with MMA Battle, Cordeiro said, “Two legends in the ring, they’re both going to the finish.”
There are three judges [sic] and an arbitrator in the fight, because it’s a real fight and it must have a winner.
It’s no longer an exhibition. Everybody has to win. From start to end, we’ll try to win.
Mike doesn’t go to the show there, he goes to fight there.
“We’re in the gym for a sparring week and that’s it. That is something he loves very much.
No one spars for an exhibition for a whole month. It’s going to be a real battle.
Roy is revered because Roy is coming for a real fight, and that’s what makes the match so different.
