CelebnSports247.com reports that boxer Roy Jones Jr. is admitting he may have “made a mistake” when he agreed to fight in an exhibition with former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson.
The exhibition fight is two months away and now Roy Jones Jr. is thinking about backstepping.
According to reports, Jones and Tyson were originally supposed to fight this month, but promoters pushed the exhibition back to attract a larger audience.
The duo is now set to compete in an unofficial bout on Nov. 28 in Carson, California.
But over the weekend the former four-weight world-champion boxer expressed reservations about the fighting the now 54-year-old former heavyweight champion.
Roy Jones Jr. knows that Tyson won’t take it easy on him.
Jones Jr. said:
When it comes time to fight, we’re going to fight. If it comes down to bite, we’re going to bite. Whatever has to happen is going to happen. That’s just what it is.
He’s still Mike Tyson. He’s still one of the strongest, most explosive people who ever touched a boxing ring. If anything, I made a mistake going in with him. He’s the bigger guy. He’s the explosive guy.
The 51-year-old predicted:
He’s going to have all the first-round fireworks, not me. I do have first-round fireworks, but he’s known for more first-round fireworks than anybody to ever touch boxing, other than maybe George Foreman. With him having the first-round fireworks, he’ll be against a guy smaller than him, maybe 40-50 pounds smaller than him.
Mike Tyson’s recent comments have Roy Jones Jr. Second Guessing:
Tyson recently said during an appearance on The Dan Patrick Show that the upcoming exhibition fight is Tyson’s “definition of fun … broken eye sockets, broken jaw, broken rib.”
We’re throwing punches at each other. This is going to be my definition of fun … broken eye sockets, broken jaw, broken rib. That’s fun to me.
