Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Jr. Bout Ends In A Draw

Judah noted that it was history unfolding before everyone, and pointed out that it was unbelievable to see Tyson get his weight down and step in the ring after 15 years.

What do you think is next for Mike Tyson after the Roy Jones Jr. fight?

"I thought I won the fight, jabbed better and controled the fight, but I'm cool with a draw", Jones said. "We're humanitarians and we're helping people".

One thing Mike Tyson knows how to do is prepare for a fight.

The Voluntary Anti-Doping Association tested Tyson and Jones Jr. for performance-enhancing drugs prior to the bout, which ended in an unofficial draw, but weed was not on the list of banned substances.

"I like him, but the dude is so strong, man", Jones said afterward. "I just finished up a training camp with Mike Tyson", said Judah on Instagram.

After the fight, Tyson told interviewer Jim Gray that he planned to move forward fighting more exhibitions and even seemed interested in running it back with Jones.

Jones Jr enjoyed the bout and opened up on Tyson's power which he clearly still possesses.

Tyson looked the more impressive of the two heavyweight heroes but the three judges ruled the contest a draw.

"Everything I was doing I could've done it better, so God willing, I'll be better the next exhibition", he continued, according to ESPN.

"But it's tough to take the punches from Mike, so I'll go talk to my family, see how they feel about it".

In round five, Tyson began to get going, landing some shots on Jones Jr including a vintage hook. "It surprised me that he was able to go them eight rounds like that". Tyson's Legends Only League will also donate a portion of proceeds to the WBC José Sulaimán Boxers Fund to support boxers who "have fallen into hard times", the news release said.

While boxing commentators couldn't believe the verdict, there wan't an angry bone in Tyson's body when the announcement was made.

Each round will be two minutes, one minute less than standard professional fights. "I like who I am now".

"I was afraid I might get hurt".

When asked whether he indulged before his first bout in 15 years: "Yeah, absolutely".
