    12 September. $50 bucks for an exhibition 8 round match with arguable 2 of the best fighters this world has had the privilege of watching. Psycho Miko and the heavy feather makes for an interesting match. Mike, who is all murder and beheading will be forced to dance and show patience with the better champ. Not sure if somebody is gonna get hurt, but GD I am uber interested in watching this train explode and try to stay on the tracks. The measurables are just too interesting to ignore and I want in.

    Anybody wanna come over and do a fight night? I got the beer and the wings.

    I so wanted the Mike Tyson/ Tyson Fury match up but the big goofy brit is a chickenshit and won't do it. I would have made a lot of money on that fight.

    Iron Mike does not have that killer instinct anymore, me thinks anyways.

    But boy did he ever back in the day.

    no kidding, I'd never seen anything like him, I think he was the best fighter there ever was in his prime,.. half of his opponents were scared shitless to enter the ring, the guy was just a beast,.. then his old man trainer died, and Tyson's career went to fuck

    Would be an interesting fight. Tyson's punch probably still packs a hell of a wallop and Roy Jones probably has lost little of his speed and none of his ring savvy.

    2 months ago and he still kicks like a mule. I don't want none of that. Ever. He's still a walking nightmare

    I value my ears too much to get in the ring with him. That and his punch might kill me

    I wasnt gonna promote this mess only because of the 2, Roy Jones was done far too long ago. I mean speeds nil, stamina nil, footwork nil. And that was 10 years ago. He's going to lose unless it goes to decision. What is this set for 10 rounds? 8? Neither will make it. Tyson and under.

    Some opened with Jones as favorite yet Tyson is -300 in some places. Well there went any value in tyson.
