Next fight of Roy Jones is not determined yet.
Shannon Briggs announced his readiness to replace Roy Jones in a duel against Mike Tyson. The exhibition duel of the legendary champions was to take place in September. The clash was later postponed to November. Following the postponement, Roy Jones announced that he was expecting an increase in his fee, and recently stated that he may have made the mistake of agreeing to confront Iron Mike.
Mike Tyson (50-6, 44 KO) feels "invincible" and prepares to return to the ring with high hopes. Of course, Mike will not have professional, but exhibition fights. But he is very serious about the preparation and the performances themselves.
“I think this is just the beginning,” said Mike Tyson (50-6, 44 KOs), the youngest world heavyweight champion ever, now 54 years old and preparing to return to the ring.
The fight of Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. will be served by the judging panel. It will be judged by three judges appointed by one of the main boxing organizations, which will also prepare a special championship belt for the winner of the exhibition boxing fight of the two retired boxers.
According to The Ring magazine, the VADA was interested in the fight of Mike Tyson and Roy Jones, scheduled for September 12. According to Ryan O'Hara, who wrote for The Ring, VADA will be in talks with sanctioning authorities, possibly with the California State Athletic Commission, to force legendary boxers to undergo random banned substance tests.
