    Serves the premadonnas right, if they actually fought eachother, maybe they'd garner as much interest.

    Wow, talk about lame. I feel sorry for those that were planning or are still planning to buy the PPV. I'll include the quotes from your source for others to read.

    But it now appears that might not be the whole truth with new details suggesting the pair have agreed to avoid going for knockouts in what will largely be an exhibition display.

    According to Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports US (who first broke the news on Thursday), Tyson and Jones will be wearing bigger gloves to minimise damage and won't be trying to knock each other out.

    "This isn't a situation where they're going out there to try to take each other's heads off," Andy Foster, the executive director of the California State Athletic Commission, told Iole.

    "They're just going to be in there moving around the ring and letting fans see these legends.

    Giving it some thought, Mike will likely win. It might've been 50/50 20 years ago but thing is, Tyson at least in his prime, was fundamentally sound, RJJ was not. RJJ used his insane athleticism to bully the other guy and relied on it, that when his athleticism left, his ability to win left as well (so did his chin).

    Today I learned that I'm an ageing hipster for not wanting to pay money to see two fossils dance around with each other in a fake fight. Apparently not being a willing moronic rube now makes you elitist and pretentious.

    At least back in the day they didn't use to just straight up announce they were doing fixed fights and usually they didn't drag guys out of nursing homes to do fake fights either. I know that idea seems quaint now, but I guess it was just a simpler time.

    Apparently no judges either. This is going to be more show than fight.

    Only on a forum like this is where you’ll see nearly 30% in Jones favor . Lol

    You can’t possibly make a case for Jones ,the only way he remotely looks good here is if Mike carries him and pulls his punches as what he’s instructed to do and even if he does that there’s nothing he’s going to be able to do to Tyson but hope he tires out from chasing him for 8 rnds to look decent in spurts maybe in the last 2 rnds .

    exactly, you can make a case that pound for pound he's better all you want, but to think he wins is ludicrous

    Jones is washed up but Tyson is more washed up. If Tyson can't swarm and stop him quick, he's going to get clowned.

    Jones said if Hopkins wants to fight they are gonna fight a pro fight on the record.
    Jones-Hopkins III?

    No headgear but basically a sparring session as long as both play along. Not supposed to go for KO's
