Video: This gripping ‘Tyson vs. Jones Jr.’ promo is the perfect way to ring in tonight’s PPV

One of the biggest fights of the year will go down later tonight (Sat., Nov. 28, 2020) live on FITE PPV from inside Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif., as the legendary Mike Tyson returns to the boxing ring to challenge Roy Jones Jr. in an exhibition main event.

This enthralling PPV bout will not have all the fixings of a usual boxing headliner, but fight fans will still get to see if Tyson has anything left in the tank. The former heavyweight champion of the world is far removed from his prime and hasn’t competed in over 15 years. Everyone will be tuning in to see if Tyson can still dominate the center of a boxing ring.

As for Jones Jr., this is his chance to steal the shine away from Tyson’s return and remind combat fans why he’s also considered one of the best fighters of all time. The former long-time light heavyweight champion may be giving up some size to Tyson, but Jones Jr. has the speed and technical ability to wade through the power shots and land punches early and often. Unlike Tyson, Jones Jr. has competed as recent as 2018.

Leading into tonight’s PPV card, which also features a co-main event clash between YouTube sensation Jake Paul and former NBA star Nate Robinson, BT Sport has released a chilling promo video. Check it out in the above player.

After all of the pre-fight banter and official weigh ins (click HERE), who do you have winning tonight’s clash between “Iron Mike” and “Superman.”
