Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. say that they are both on the same page for their upcoming battle at the “exhibition” – this is not a game, they are bleeding.
The two boxing legends just spoke to the media about their big fight on November 28 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles (available via Triller’s PPV) and slammed hard at the suggestion that it would be a friendly show.
“We took Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. – and I’m coming to fight,” Tyson said Thursday … “I hope so. [Roy is] to come and fight and that’s all you need to know. “
The point is that the head of the California Athletic Commission said that the boys will move EASILY towards each other and will NOT hunt.
Here’s what CSAC’s CEO is Andy Foster he said Yahoo Sports “It’s not a situation where they go out there to try to get their heads down. They’ll just be there, moving around the ring and letting the fans see these legends.”
On Thursday, Roy assured the media that this was simply not the case.
“The last person to do an exhibition with Mike dropped out in Round 1. And if you don’t know that, something is wrong with you,” Roy said.
Roy mentions Mike’s 2006 show with a former heavyweight boxer Corey “T-Rex” Sanders. Tyson was obviously getting involved and not trying to kill the man.
This time, Roy says the battle will be competitive.
“Who goes into the ring with the great, legendary Mike Tyson and thinks, ‘Oh, this is an exhibition ?! 12-ounce gloves without hats? Really? Is this an exhibition? Come on, brah. Be real. “
Mike says he was learning like a maniac – Yes, we watched the videos – and he regains his murderous mentality.
In fact, Mike says he’s not staying with his family right now because “there’s no way you can live with me. They’d kick me out of the house.”
