Ahead of this exhibition bout, representatives from the sanctioning California State Athletic Commission have stated that it will not be a legitimate fight.
Jones, however, seems to believe the contrary. By his estimation, any time in the ring with Tyson is dangerous.
“No different,” Jones told MMA Junkie of Tyson. “I mean, the first three rounds, he’s gonna be dangerous. He was like that in his prime. He’s like that now. He’s a guy that can knock you out from Round 1 to Round 12, so in the eighth round he’ll still be dangerous. But if you can get the fatigue factor to set in, then you got a better chance. So for me, I got to try and work off the second half of the fight more so than I work off the first half.
“Mike knows one way – kill. That’s all he knows. Destruction and destroy. That’s all he understands, so my mindset is I better be ready when I go in between those ropes. One thing my dad’s taught me, he said, ‘If you’re going to kill a fly, you kill a fly with an axe, not a fly swatter.’”
