After he has been posting hype video clips about training for weeks and weeks, Mike Tyson is finally heading back inside a boxing ring. This is obviously a moment of nostalgia as our guy is up for an exhibition match on PPV. Mike is now 54 years in age and has proven himself as the former undisputed heavyweight champion of the whole world. As of right now, he is all ready to take on the former four-division champion, that is, Roy Jones Junior, on the 28th of November 2020. This will be from Staples Centre located in Los Angeles. Even Jones Junior has turned 51 years in age in January.
Of course, Mike Tyson has been one of the most feared heavyweights that have ever existed in history. He has even dominated the division over the latter half of the 1980s while becoming the youngest heavyweight champion in history. Mike Tyson had a brutal punching power that has carried him to a 37 to 0 record. This happened all before he fell prey to one of the greatest sports upsets in the world. It all happened when Mike was knocked out by James Buster Douglas in Tokyo in July of 1990. Tyson remained in the spotlight as a star even after he was convicted of rape.
Mike later would go on to have some infamous blows such as buying Evander Holyfield twice in their rematch, which happened back in June of 1997. He has even quitted against Kevin McBride during his final pro bout. In some recent years, the man has worked upon rehabilitating his image in the form of a kinder and a gentler version of himself. He has started appearing in various films and hosted podcasts while also becoming an outspoken advocate against the use of marijuana among teenagers.
Back in the 1990s, Roy Jones Junior was named as the best boxer by Ring Magazine. When Jones is set at his best pace, he portrays a glorifying combination of speed and power and defense. He is also able to showboat in fantastic, along with improbable ways. Jones has even won gold championships at middleweight as well as a super middleweight and light heavyweight. Later, he even won at a heavyweight event in a historic accomplishment.
First, 50 fights that he did at the start of his beautiful and healthy career was all avenged at his lone loss of a controversial disqualification that happened against Montell Griffin in less than one round in the rematch. Jones and his career slowly started to unravel as his style was dependent too much on various reflexes that went away over a definite course of time.
