TYSON AND JONES LOOK TO BATTLE IT OUT
Who would have thought that we would be getting a fight we never thought we would see? Who would have thought that two ex-champions would be getting together to duke it out in the ring? Who would have thought that two fighters over 50 would still be in top shape and full of energy would be the talk of the boxing world? Who would have thought? I don’t know, but I love it.
Iron Mike Tyson, 54 years old is in the best shape he has been in years. There is no doubt about that and if you have seen those videos of him training on the Joe Rogan podcast, you know what I am talking about. Yes, the man looks deadly! Tyson looks like a man reborn with the strength of multiple warriors inside of him. He looks like the old Iron Mike.
Roy Jones Jr, 51 years old has experience fighting late into his career, as well as experience fighting boxers out of his weight class. Remember what he did to John Ruiz? He too seems to be in tip top shape as there have been videos of him training going around as well. Jones Jr., like Tyson appeared on the Joe Rogan podcast to talk about the fight in which both men look forward to going at it. Both fighters are looking forward to getting in the ring with each other in this exciting bout which takes place on November 28th.
It will not be like other boxing matches as the rules have been tweaked a bit. There will be 8 rounds which will be 2 minutes each. Both fighters will also be wearing 12-ounce gloves. There is no head gear being worn (Thank God) but the fight is being called an exhibition bout.
With 2 minute rounds one can wonder if this will lead each fighter to try and knock the other out quickly as they will not have too long to do it especially with the number of rounds cut and the time per each round. Either way though, this should be exciting.
