    I hope Tyson gets decimated. Just because.

    Calling it for Jones. If Tyson lands his ear-biting clinch then maybe he can swing it.

    If Tyson can keep his cool he can win it. But his attitude scares me.

    Tyson is age 54 with a reach of 71 inches. Jones is age 51 with a reach of 74 inches.

    In the past Tyson has almost exclusively won in the first 3 rounds (and lost after round 3). While possible, it's unlikely that, at 54, Tyson is not going to be sucking air if it goes past round 4. Will his conditioning and fighting style really be more endurance-based in his old age? Doubtful. But he could get a good shot in. And from Iron Mike, one good shot is all it takes.

    I don't know much about Jones, but the fact that he successfully went from middleweight to heavyweight tells us that he can both hit hard and move around the ring. He could tire Tyson out by utilizing his jab effectively and never letting him inside for a solid punch.

    Here's a reality check though, it's an 8 round exhibition match (with 12 oz. gloves) of two fighters past their prime. The referee could stop the match pretty fast if one of them started to look just a little wobbly.

    Tyson will win because he will keep his cool during the fight, I'm sure of that.

    Even Jones is scared, as if he is feeling like being forced into it. Mike recent video is scary too.


    The fight to make is Mayweather vs Tyson. Just to shut up the former loud mouth.

    Mayweather fights are decided off the ring pre-fight.

    And most of his fight are defensive decision based win. That guy call himself better than Ali, let's see how he handle the agressive merciless jab of Tyson.

    You just want to see a light middleweight get mauled by a heavyweight. Since I already posted mike tyson's punchout. Here is Floyd Mayweather jr's Punchout.

    Fuck the refs and fuck you too.
    It was s'posed to be a boxing match not a hugging match.
    The day boxing died was when the Jordan Paul fight was the most exciting match.

    So the only thing come out of all of this is that it made the already bad looking basketball players come out looking worse.

    This fight made me think that Rocky Balboa's "Old Man in the Ring Match" was now somehow realistic.

    Snoop Dog's commentary was the thing that made it a clasic, though. "It's like my uncles beating each other up at the BBQ! Get Grandma!"
