Mike Tyson will be out for blood tomorrow night (Sat., Nov. 28, 2020) live on FITE PPV from inside Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif., as he returns to the boxing ring against Roy Jones Jr. in an exciting main event.

The matchup between Tyson and Jones will be an exhibition and unlikely to produce a devastating knockout, but that isn’t going to stop “Iron Mike” from pushing the pace and reminding fans how dangerous he can be inside of a boxing ring. Remember, Tyson hasn’t fought since a TKO loss to Kevin McBride back in 2005.

In order to capitalize on his return to PPV, Tyson has done his best to promote his matchup with Jones. While Tyson has released some serious training videos over the past few months to create buzz the former heavyweight champion took a more comedic approach for his Thanksgiving Day dinner.

In a video released yesterday (shown in the above player), Tyson unveiled a cake in the shape of Jones Jr.’s head. He began to ask his kids what piece they’d like to eat, while calling dibs on Jones’ ear himself. Remember, one of Tyson’s most memorable moments inside of the ring is when he bit a chunk out of Evander Holyfield’s ear during a title fight rematch back in 1997.

“Tastes so much better than Evander’s,” said Tyson of the Thanksgiving cake.

After releasing the video, Tyson took to social media to show is dog, Mars, chowing down on some Jones Jr. leftovers.

Obviously, it would be absolutely horrific if Tyson repeated history and took a bite out of Jones Jr.’s ear this weekend on PPV. That said, Tyson’s video was pretty hilarious and offers a little bit of trash talk leading into his awaited return.

As for his past rivalry with Holyfield, Tyson seems ready to ignite the trilogy if all goes well against Jones Jr.
