"Iron" Mike will take on Roy Jones Jr. on Sept. 12 in an 8-round exhibition being called Frontline Battle -- available on Pay-per-view and on the social media platform, Triller.

We're told the fight will take place in California -- and will be sanctioned by the California State Athletic Commission.

The event will include an undercard and live musical performances from top artists -- and since Triller is backed by big stars like Snoop, Lil Wayne, Future, The Weeknd, Pitbull, Marshmello and more -- the entertainment should be pretty solid!

FYI, Triller is a rapidly growing social media platform that's gunning to take over the TikTok crowd -- and while it's previously focused on music (including partnerships with major labels) it's now making a concentrated foray into live events including sports.

Tyson has been talking about a comeback for months and got some massive offers -- so, we're guessing Triller shelled out some big bucks to land the rights to his first comeback fight.

There's more ... we've also learned Triller locked up the rights to a 10-part docuseries featuring Mike and Roy preparing for their fight ... with 2 episodes dropping every week until fight night, streaming on the platform.

I'm hoping that this PPV is just the beginning of a new eugenics policy by the US government and that they are going to identify dangerously retarded individuals based on whoever purchases this fight so that they can immediately remove them from the gene pool.

I'll watch.



I was just watching Roy gettign chiropractically adjusted on YouTube recntly.
And I trained at Rafael Cordeiro's for a short period and was surprised to see him training Tyson.


Should be interesting.


Namaste

Do you ever have anything positive to say on here? You must be one bad mfer yourself.

I was pretty badass once, but unfortunately I'm no longer in my prime. But you should have seen me in my glory days. Some say I was the Jon Jones of elementary school sand pit fighting.

And are you really getting your panties twisted that I won't say something positive about an 'exhibition match' between a 54-year-old and a 51-year-old? You've fought professionally - you understand that 'exhibition match' means 'this isn't an actual fight', right?

If you want to point out that I'm a miserable, negative cunt - which I am - this is the worst battlefield to choose to make that stand that I could think of. There's a fair bit of middle ground between being a negative cunt and pointing out that spending your money on a fake pro wrestling match between two geriatrics might not be the best use of it.

Is there anywhere we can see the specifics about this match? Are they really going to fight or will they have big gloves and barely touch each other? Also, what weight class? Seems like Tyson will be bigger. That said, I would pick RJJ to use his reach and stay on the outside and pick Tyson apart until he gasses.

I'm fully aware that it's not a actual fight and just posted that on my FB informing the masses that aren't aware how exhibitions work.. I simply asked a question because I've only seen you troll or be negative about any and everything I've seen you talk about..


It's your right to be negative but as long as you're in good health cuz I don't wanna see nobody on here unhappy or sick in any capacity..

I just don't understand why you are on a fight forum if you think MMA is trash.. And to the geriatrics and spending money that's another story..

There are Rivers that are free and ppl just excited to see iron Mike actually happy and having an event..I'd rather watch two former world champs if their caliber spar than most other sporting events with prime athletes.. And as far as any middle ground that's hard to do when I'm an optimist and you're a pessimist.

Exhibition is the only thing you need to know buddy.. It'll be a glorified sparring match.. And if it was a actual fight you're right rjj might outbox him but RJJ chin is past shot and couldn't take a clean shot from Mike..

So they want people to pay for a "exhibition" between two 50 year old men with a combined 133 fights?

At this point in time RJJ has no hope in hell of beating Tyson.

Roy’s reflex’s are long gone and Tyson still has the power to knock Jones the fuck out.

Roy and mike fought in different weight classes for a reason. Exhibition be damned. I see Iron Mike Ko’ing RJJ inside of 2 rounds.

Wasn RJJ the Heavyweight champ at one point late in his career?
