Jacked Mike Tyson terrifies social media

The heavyweight has criticized Tyson for picking to fight Roy Jones Jr as he believes it should have been him.

Overpowering Jones Jr will be no easy feat, with the former four-division champion tallying 66 wins to just nine losses in his career.

Since Mike Tyson's first boxing workout videos surfaced on social media earlier this year, the buzz around his potential in-return remained.

Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. will be held on November 28, 2020, and the spend-for every-view fight will be stay streamed by way of the Triller application.

Though Holyfield may have been a more marketable opponent for Mike Tyson, the prospect of seeing the legend of the sport back in the ring is exciting.

Tyson, 54, and Jones, 51, said during a recent virtual press conference Insider attended that they were both annoyed they were fighting two-minute rounds rather than the traditional three which they would have competed in during their respective primes. But Roy Jones was probably the most athletic boxer of all-time, athletic champion of all time.

"Jon Jones used to try to pull this one".

ESPN's Ariel Helwani was a bit more direct: "Bro".

To say Mike Tyson has dramatically changed his physique over the last few months would be somewhat of an understatement. I know it's going to be a so-called exhibition match but I have no interest.

Tyson has returned to tremendous physical shape that has him optimistic about making his return more than a one-off event.

The 54-year-old's previously chubby exterior - which was the byproduct of him not training for fear of reigniting his ego - is now a thing of the past and has been replaced by a muscle-bound frame. The 54-year-old has high hopes, but all that will hinge on how he performs on November 28 against a highly formidable opponent.
