Forster said: “Tyson and Jones Jr. won’t be wearing headgear for the fight. They’ll be lacing up 12-ounce gloves and there won’t be any judges present at the fight to score the action. So, technically, there won’t be a winner unless a knockout somehow occurs, or either fighter is deemed unfit to continue.
The 54-year old Mike Tyson will be returning to the ring for the first time since 2005, when he lost via sixth-round retirement to Kevin McBride. Considered as one of the best heavyweight boxers during his prime, Tyson won his first 37 bouts and held the WBA, WBC, and IBF heavyweight titles. Tyson holds wins over Larry Holmes, Michael Spinks, Frank Bruno, and Buster Mathis Jr.
Standing opposite Tyson will be the 51-year old Jones Jr., whose last appearance inside a boxing ring was back in 2018, when he defeated Scott Sigmon for the WBU cruiserweight championship. Jones is a four-division boxing champion, with world title reigns at middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight, and heavyweight. Jones also holds wins over James Toney, Bernard Hopkins, Felix Trinidad, and Antonio Tarver.
