Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr looks set to put on a memorable exhibition fight as two of the biggest names in boxing history go head to head at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles.

Tyson has openly stated that he will be going hard in this fight. Will Jones Jr's plan to take the exhibition match all the way pave the way for victory?

Mike Tyson Form

A former WBA, WBC, IBF and The Ring heavyweight champion, Tyson is a household name when it comes to boxing. 

He has a record of 50 wins and just six losses, but hasn't been seen in the boxing ring for over 10 years.

Tyson looks in incredible shape from what we have seen of videos of him in the gym on social media.

The first four rounds will be the most important for Tyson, who will likely need to win the fight by KO.

If Tyson can get a few big hits early, he could win this by KO in the early rounds, but after so long out of the ring be very cautious about his chances if the fight goes to a fifth and onwards.

Roy Jones Jr Form

Another household boxing name, Jones Jr was a former four-weight boxing champion. He held titles in the middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and heavy weight divisions during a glittering career.

His last fight was back in 2018 against Scott Sigmon, where it was a unanimous decision for the WBU cruiserweight title.

Jones is fit and also appears to be in incredible shape. All eight rounds are important for Jones, who is unlikely to overpower Tyson but should outlast him if this goes the distance. 

Openly stating that 'Mike ain't ordinary', Jones Jr knows he needs this to go all eight rounds if he is to win.
