Boxing legends Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. will meet in an exhibition fight Saturday night at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Tyson, 54, retired in 2005 after losing to Kevin McBride. Jones, 51, continued to fight past his prime, with his last appearance coming on Feb. 8, 2018, which resulted in a unanimous-decision victory over journeyman Scott Sigmon. Jones hasn’t had a significant win since defeating Jeff Lacy in 2009.
The fight is scheduled for eight two-minute rounds, with no headgear and the fighters wearing 12-ounce gloves instead of 10-ounce gloves. The referee will be Ray Corona. No fans will be allowed inside the arena.
Andy Foster, executive officer of the California State Athletic Commission, has said there won’t be official judges or official scorecards, and because of that, no winner will be announced. However, the WBC will have some remote judges and will award a belt to whomever they announce as the winner.
