Mike Tyson said he would "absolutely" fight again after his blockbuster exhibition with Roy Jones Jr. I haven't been fighting for 15 years and he stopped fighting three years ago and everybody is anxious about his a**. "Sometimes, that two minutes felt like three minutes. It means we just might have to do it again, but I don't know".
Tyson, once considered "the baddest man on the planet", returned to the boxing ring Saturday for a highly anticipated bout.
Tyson, 54, who hadn't fought since his defeat to Kevin McBride back in 2005, was the main aggressor throughout, without ever threatening to inflict serious damage on his opponent.
"I'm good with a draw because I entertained the crowd and the crowd was good with it".
An unofficial WBC panel of judges was made up of three former fighters and Tyson received a score of 79-73 from Christy Martin, but Vinny Paz favoured Jones Jr with a wide tally of 80-76, while Chad Dawson scored it 76-76 to seal a draw after eight two-minute rounds.
Jones said: "When he hits you, to the head, punches to the body shots, everything hurts".
Tyson landed a couple of eye-catching left hooks, some solid body shots and unquestionably forced the pace. We've got to do this again. (66-9) was returning to the ring for the first time since February of 2018, where he had picked up a unanimous decision victory over Scott Sigmon.
There were no official judges for the fight, instead three former boxers gave their verdict. Some fans are already predicting an early knockout, with folks like 50 Cent suggesting that he could kill Roy Jones Jr.
There were glimpses of the past as Tyson swayed from the hips, ploughed forward and tried to unload shots, while Jones sought to move fluidly, though he was visibly drained by the halfway stage.
But Tyson and Jones were the headliners in the most improbable pay-per-view boxing event in years, engineered by social networking app Triller and featuring fights interspersed with hip hop performances in an empty arena. "It's something to take the punches that Mike throws".
