The round will professionally not be sanctioned or sway their records.
But Roach, who initially trained Mike Tyson in 2002 – shifted Iron Mike to roll back the clock and knock out Jones. Also, he warned him to avoid taking a left hook to the body.
He said to Press Box PR: “I spoke with Mike about 10 days ago and I told him he does not know the meaning of the word exhibition.
He laughed then but he knew what I meant. Tyson – an old school fighter who only has one gear – ahead.
And I know when it rings, Tyson will be swinging for the rails.
I think Mike knocks Jones out. But warned Mike that Jones has to be careful of Roy’s left to the body. That’s the punch Jones used to knock out Virgil Hill.
Achievements of Mike Tyson
In May, Mike caught the attention of the boxing world this year when he posted a short video of a workout that showed he possesses plenty of speed and punching power, which qualities had enabled him to become the first heavyweight to hold the WBC, WBA, and IBF titles.
Mike became the youngest heavyweight champ in history when he won the title in 1986. For a time he was the most feared fighter in boxing. But his career became scattered with distractions and he has not hit since 2005 after losing his second-level fight.
Roy, 51, won titles in the middleweight, super middleweight, and light heavyweight before leading up to win the heavyweight title in 2003. He became the first former middleweight champion to do so in 106 years.
The event will air on pay-per-view and the social media music platform Triller. Moreover matches on the card and musical entertainment will be declared in the coming weeks.
