I have never wanted to see Mike go ham more than I do now. I don’t wish any harm on RJJ, I just want to see Tyson let his freak flag fly and bite some fucking ears!

There was some major money on the line for Tyson to actually fight. Odd he'd do this "exhibition" instead of catching a $20m+ payday. Is he getting Mayweather money on these "exhibitions?" He could be 2 and done in real fights against legends and make BANK! Think about it, Holyfield would rake in COINS! If Roy Jones Jr. was a real fight, again, that would rake in TONS! Why go this route? It is obviously for money, but the real money is in real fights, so why mess with the toes in the water bullshit?

I think jake can outpoint nate because jake has some experience under his belt having fought twice now. nate will not know how to pace himself or might have sone shock being in a televised fight.
Here is my counter argument:

Its some shitty new tech company trying to compete with tik tok for all the teen ad money, I'm sure they are blowing through startup cash like a forest fire

maybe because of the sanctioning requirements for an actual fight, the media responsibilities...maybe just the simple fact that it counts as a W or L on your record and the difference in how you train...

lots of reasons, i guess.

paul is basically a light heavy weight in boxing or a cruiserweight maybe larger nate is probably like 180 max and probably 5'8".
Shameful to put this pleb on a card with 2 legends like Tyson and RJJ, worse than Saunders the last time, even if this will be glorified sparring.

Whats the story with this Paul guy wanting to fight small men as well, at least this one is athlethic, the last guy was weedy little fucker with a potbelly.

Apparently, this has been postponed...

The apparent reason is because this "Black" :rolleyes: Lives Matter rioter was supposed to fight on the card:


And since he got fingered by the FBI for being a ... Marxist Terrorist... ?

He won't be able to fight on the card... therefore card is postponed.
I propose his punishment be to go 3 rounds with Mike, and 3 rounds with RJJ. For great justice.



Namaste

THE EXHIBITION BOUT between boxing legends Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. will be pushed back from its Sept. 12 date to Nov. 28, according to a report by RingTV.com.


The event, which is sanctioned by the California State Athletic Commission and set to be held at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California, will be streamed on pay-per-view. A source told ESPN on Sunday that there have been no official adjustments made to the contract at this time, but there have been discussions over the weekend in regard to a change of date.


The source confirmed that the organizers of this event needed more time to secure international television deals and tie up loose ends in regards to the pay-per-view.
