The living legend Mike Tyson will take on former champion Roy Jones Jr on a star-studded card.

Talk of a fight for Tyson began to circulate after an Instagram video featuring him unleashing a set of boxing skills that made it look like he hadn’t left the ring at all over the past few years. 

The intimidation factor was high and many began to speculate that Tyson could emerge from retirement to face a genuine contender on the IBF circuit but, before that unfolding, an exhibition bout against a contender around his age would be necessary. There’s a lot to like about Tyson’s skills and he can put together a lot of momentum here that could propel him to another big payday. 

Few things would alight the boxing world more than to see an in-form Mike Tyson step into the ring to roll back the years with a virtuoso performance. Roy Jones Jr is no slouch, but many expect Tyson to be able to take care of him and set the stage for another big PPV event in the new year. 

As it currently stands, the bookmakers have Tyson priced around 8/15 for the outright victory by any method. Roy Jones Jr can be backed at a solid price of around 15/8 and there will probably be a few who wind up backing him at that price. You can likely expect him to be higher on the day as the volume coming in the day of the fight and you can assume most of that will be on Tyson. 

A draw is priced much shorter than a normal fight here and it trades around 12/1 to 14/1 whereas a draw usually sits at 33/1. Tyson is favoured to win the fight via KO, TKO or DQ and it’s trading at an odds-on price of 4/6 while a victory by decision pays out around 4/1. Roy Jones Jr for the KO, TKO or DQ victory is a 16/5 price while a decision win rewards at 9/2.
