Here’s where you can watch Mike Tyson fight in the Valley
Is there anything more exciting that watching a Mike Tyson fight with your friends?
One of the most highly anticipated comebacks in combat sports history takes place Saturday, Nov. 28, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles when former undisputed heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson takes on former pound-for-pound great Roy Jones, Jr. on pay-per-view.
Tyson, known as the “baddest man on the planet,” holds the record as the youngest boxer to win a heavyweight title and is stepping back into the ring at age 54. He last fought in 2005.
Jones held multiple world championships in four weight classes, including titles at middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight, and is the only boxer in history to start his professional career at light middleweight and go on to win a heavyweight title.
Here is the event’s main card:
Mike Tyson (50-6) vs. Roy Jones Jr. (66-9) at heavyweight
Jake Paul (1-0) vs. Nate Robinson (0-0) at cruiserweight
Badou Jack (22-3-3) vs. Blake McKernan (13-0) at heavyweight
Viddal Riley (4-0) vs. Rashad Coulter (1-0) at cruiserweight
The main card starts at 8 p.m. Arizona time. Here’s where you can watch the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones, Jr. fight in the Valley.
