    Roy is just a smart business man, he agreed to a bout on a certain date for a certain amount of money. Now they want to change the date to make more money, where's his cut?

    This move also benefits Tyson more than him as Roy has never stopped training, Mike has more catching up to do.

    Its fascinating. There really are people out there thinking this will be a boxing fight and not just a money grabbing circus .o_O

    Most people dont(uncle roger).. youtubers with zero sport background as adults have already sold out arenas multiple times.


    meh, knockdowns are illegal, in 3 rounds with head gear , sounds safe enough.

    He is 53. All the marihuana smoking should have made him a little bit more relaxed. Its all imo posturing for the media. Wouldnt surprise me if he has no cardio left after 2min. But its an exhibition. Honestly the best thing would be a script just like in Pro Wrestling with some planned bob & weave from Tyson and slick moves from Roy.

    Make a demonstration out of it what they have been.

    it's not that i'm worried about, roy has a chin that can't even take sloppy, grazing punches, i know mike is mellower now but what people really are doesn't change much. I don't think it's serious, so, i don't even see the point really.

    Pathetic. HBO is out of boxing so he’s not commenting as far as I know and the CBA went out of business 10 years ago so he’s got no basketball to play. What am I missing?

    He should just take the extra 2 months to grow a full beard to protect his chin. Think he’ll need it, even for a glorified sparring match

    As usual, pulling out is pretty much the only sensible way to go.

    None of Tysons previous exhibitions were so why would this one? It will be a complete anti climax with a little bit of tagging, that's all. A complete waste of everybody's time.

    I don't think I've ever seen Tyson tired in a fight. If his cardio is that good with training, it is obviously above average off training

    Yeah. They couldn't pick a more washed-up opponent for Mike. And I know full well how awesome Roy was when he wasn't but that’s not relevant now

    Btw, did Roy ever face someone even remotely similar in speed to Tyson or Roy himself? Who is the fastest one Roy faced in terms of pure hand speed?
