Mike Tyson, the hard punching former heavyweight champion of the world, is continuing the checkered tradition of ageing boxers getting back into the ring. At 54 years old, he has a few more miles in his legs than his 51-year-old opponent, Roy Jones Jr.

Tyson has set social media alight this year, showcasing his legendary explosive power in some training footage. After informing the world he wanted to don the gloves again for charity, he received a number of offers to fight from around the world. He ultimately accepted a deal with Jones Jr.

The exhibition bout will consist of 8 sets of shortened 2 minute rounds. A colorful undercard also features former NBA slam dunk champion Nate Robinson taking on YouTube personality Jake Paul.

Who will win Tyson vs Jones Jr?

Given the age of the fighters, the exhibition status and the unpredictable nature of boxing, picking a winner is fraught with danger. But Tyson’s pedigree, and genuinely frightening training footage, makes him the favorite.

Yet Jones Jr is certainly no mug. A dual American-Russian citizen, Jones’ 47-9 career win-loss record compares reasonably well with Tyson’s 50-6 resume. Jones Jr could also be expected to have a slight edge in fitness and stamina.
