Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. Betting PreviewMike Tyson is a former heavyweight champion who has an incredible boxing record of 50-6 with a whopping 44 knockouts. Iron Mike hasn’t been in action in 15 years and is now the ripe age of 54 but despite that, the former undisputed heavyweight champ looked in incredible shape from what we have seen of videos of him in the gym on social media. Tyson was last seen in action against Kevin McBride back in 2005, when he quit before the seventh round. He was the massive favorite in that one, but he looked sluggish from the start and ended up throwing in the towel at the end of the sixth round.
Tyson’s social posts suggest that he is taking training seriously and the legendary boxer looks poised to remind everyone why he remains one of the sport’s biggest names. He can’t afford to have another embarrassing exit. The bout is only over eight rounds, but Tyson knows the longer it goes on the better it will be for his opponent. So he will go for an early stoppage.
Roy Jones Jr. (66-9, 47 KOs) was named the boxer of the decade for the 1990s by Ring Magazine and is widely considered one of the best pound-for-pound boxers of all time. He is a former four-weight boxing champion, holding titles in the middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and heavy weight division. He hasn’t been out of action as long as Tyson, having had his last bout in 2018. Hence, he will have fitness on his side for sure.
Jones Jr. has won 12 of his last 13 fights, albeit against largely unknown competition. His lone loss during that span was a fourth-round knockout against Enzo Maccarinelli in December 2015. He should be very careful in the early rounds of this out. Jones Jr. is unlikely to overpower Tyson, but should outlast him if this goes the length. His more recent activities in the ring will likely result in better stamina that could be crucial at this age.
Who is the favorite?The odds have shifted since they first hit the boxing betting board back in July. Mike Tyson is now the favourite to add another scalp to his resume.
Tyson has released recent training videos on Youtube that show his speed and we believe it's one of the main reasons why the initial odds that favoured Jones made a 180-degree turn towards supporting Iron Mike.
You can back Tyson at 8/15 with William Hill, or Roy Jones Jr. at 15/8 with Betfred. Anyway, 888sport are offering unmissable enhanced odds on both contenders..

Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. PredictionsThe two boxing legends will wear twelve-ounce gloves. Probably they have agreed to not deliver any knockout punch and with the referee under specific instructions to stop the match if it goes beyond "the boundaries of a competitive boxing exhibition". Hence, we expect a bout without any serious knockout blows as the two fighters could simply use the stage to spar their way to a payday.
A draw (backable at 12/1 ), could be the smartest and most lucrative bet.
