Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. - battle of the almost seniors

.........................

coming up for your viewing pleasure on Sept. 12


Mike Tyson is but a shadow of what he once was
if you can get an inflated price betting against him - I would say that is the way to go
he may be way, way overbet because he is a name - maybe not


from an article 2 days ago about him:



"After getting knocked out at age 35 by Lennox Lewis in a final bid for a title in 2002, Tyson went back into the ring three more times. He beat Clifford Etienne before being knocked out by Danny Williams and 𝐪𝐮𝐢𝐭𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 in the middle of a fight against Kevin McBride. “If this does not convince the public that Tyson is washed up, perhaps nothing will,” The Times wrote under the headline “Tyson Quits Fight and May Quit Boxing Next.”'



about Roy Jones Jr. as an older fighter:



"On December 30, 2017, Jones announced that he would return to the Bay Center in Pensacola, Florida to headline the Island Fights 46 on February 8, 2018. Jones had previously headlined Island Fights, which is a show that included both boxing and MMA bouts. Speaking of the event, Jones said, "My last day at the Bay. It's my last one for the bayfront ... Civic Center, Pensacola, Bayfront Arena, whatever you want to call it. So if you want to come to see my last day in Pensacola, be there February 8. That's my last one there." He stated it would be his final fight. Jones announced Scott Sigmon (30-11-1, 16 KOs) as his opponent for the 10 round bout.[145] Jones ended his boxing career defeating Sigmon via a one-sided 10 round unanimous decision, also winning the vacant World Boxing Union cruiserweight title in the process. All three judges scored the fight 98-92 in favour of Jones. Jones started off the better boxer landed upper cuts and hooks and remained in control throughout the fight. Jones landed an uppercut in round 5 which knocked Sigmon's mouthpiece out. In round 6, Sigmon began throwing more punches, although they were weak combinations easily blocked by Jones. Jones was also able to counter most of the shots Sigmon threw."'

Re: Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. - battle of the almost seniors

Didn’t jones jnr fight at like 170? I can remember him getting toyed with by calazaghe for 12 rounds, who is no giant, ofc wildly different styles but still.



Ofc a lot will depend on how seriously each fighter is taking the bout, more so Tyson, but gotta imagine -170 is good value for Tyson?

...........................

my OP in this thread is all wrong - sorry about that
at the time I wrote it I did not realize this match was only an exhibition
with all kinds of special rules and objectives

I don't think it's worth betting on unless just for fun


from the linked article:


"Foster also said there will be no judges for this contest, making it a true exhibition with no expected winner. Some gambling sites have offered odds on the match, but it's tough to tell how that will go given it could just end at any moment."
