Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. Fight Preview

Fight Odds: Mike Tyson (-200) vs. Roy Jones Jr. (+160)

Will the two retired boxing superstars be able to put on a good show for the fans?

Tyson (50-6) is 54-years-old and Jones Jr. (66-9) is 51-years-old. The two boxers were at the top of the game during their careers, but they never fought, as Jones Jr. didn't fight too often at heavyweight.

While both fighters are well past their prime – I'm excited to see what they have in the tank.

Both fighters are healthy and while boxing at 50+ years of age is dangerous, let’s hope that both of these guys come out of the fight unscathed and with a few extra bucks.

Tyson last fought 15 years ago and he was stopped by Kevin McBride in six rounds.

Jones Jr. has still been fighting fairly regularly. He last fought in 2018 against Scott Sigmon, which he won by decision. His last major bout was in 2015 in Moscow against Enzo Maccarinelli. He ended up losing by knockout in four rounds. It’s tough to know what to expect out of either fighter.

Nate Robinson Is Getting into the Ring

Fight Odds: Jake Paul (-160) vs. Nate Robinson (+130)

Yup – you read that right. Retired NBA player Nate Robinson is getting into the ring.

He’ll be fighting YouTube star Jake Paul on the undercard. I’m not really sure how this fight came about, but Paul is coming off a win in the ring against another YouTuber (AnEsonGib).

This will be the first boxing fight for Robinson. Paul is favored at BetOnline.

One thing’s for sure – this event in September is going to be entertaining.

With Tyson vs. Jones Jr. and then Robinson fighting Paul, it’ll be a fun night.

When Is Canelo Alvarez Fighting Next?

Canelo Alvarez wants to fight on September 12th as well – albeit at a different event.

Alvarez wants to sign a fight contract, but according to recent reports, DAZN is holding things up, as they’re trying to get a discount from Alvarez for this fight. In 2018, Alvarez signed an 11-fight contract with DAZN worth $365 million, but DAZN are reportedly frustrated with his recent match-ups.

The top contender expected to fight Alvarez is Callum Smith.

However, no fight contract has been signed yet and Alvarez’s next fight could be pushed back even further if his lawyer and DAZN aren’t able to come to terms soon.
