    Delete and start over maybe?

    I haven't seen videos of Jones in training but I've seen some of Mike. Ain't no way I'm taking a hit from him. He was born to punch people

    Iron Mike has like some sort of human sledgehammer for fists.

    Roy Jones Decision

    Roy Jones Jr has always been my favorite boxer. His style is what got me into boxing and who I tried to take things from when I started getting in the ring. Head says Mike but heart says Jones

    Get Hollyfield involved and I will watch. That would be fun. Herschel would probable fight him. That would be even more fun.

    I'm. 💯

    There should be another option: who blows lunch first. Can’t believe either can get into fighting shape at their age. Could be entertaining though.

    Which will happen first? A knock out or a pass out from hyperventilation

    Watched this earlier today. Think this could be over quickly after seeing this.

    If he dies, he dies.

    Roy Jones Decision

    Have you not watched mikes workouts recently? Dude looks like he didn't lose any speed or power. He's still a monster

    Since my I'm/100% response didn't gain much traction, here's my real $0.02.

    Mike seems to be at peace at this stage of his life. That's not a good place to be if you want to win boxing matches. When he was young (and successful), he was borderline crazy and definitely angry. I have no idea what's going on with Roy Jones these days but that's where my money would be. Unless Don King is the promoter, in which case the fix may already be in for Tyson.

    Tyson has been training with chute box guys from Brazil this is over in a hurry. I don’t think Roy can run fast enough.

    Iron Mike in a KO

    Exactly what I was thinking. Roy might actually get killed in the ring. Tyson is still the hardest hitter on the planet. If Tyson has his mental game together he is unstoppable. I can see him making a George Foreman-like comeback. I'll bet he stages a comeback. The heavyweight division is a bit of a mess right now. Would love to see Tyson fight Wilder or Fury.

    Maybe. I've watched both and am not impressed. They look kind of sloppy and awkward. Neither seem to have Tyson's killer instincts and fearlessness. If Tyson looks good against RJJ I wouldn't be surprised to see him get back in the game. Of course Tyson is 50 something years old and who knows what his stamina is like right now...but then Tyson didn't go past 3 rounds very often in his prime.

  • KaseyKasey Posts: 15,251 mod

    You know what else they don’t have?

    Tyson’s advanced age. His prime was OVER 30 years ago. He’s 54.
