Legendary boxer Roy Jones Jr. looks to be in phenomenal shape ahead of his highly-anticipated boxing match against Mike Tyson next Saturday.
Jones Jr. and Tyson will meet in the boxing ring on November 28 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California in a battle of boxing legends. The bout is scheduled for eight rounds and is an exhibition fight, though there will be a belt on the line. Despite Jones Jr. being 51 and Tyson being 54, both men appear to be taking this fight extremely seriously based on the photos and videos we have seen ahead of it. This is going to be a big fight.
Ahead of next Saturday’s big fight, footage has emerged of Jones Jr. training for the matchup. Despite being in his 50s, Jones Jr. still appears to be incredibly fast.
Jones Jr. is actually the younger man in this fight, and he’s naturally a slightly smaller man, so he should have the speed advantage in the contest. Although Tyson is still fast and explosive as we have seen in his videos, he hasn’t fought in 15 years. Jones Jr., meanwhile, has been fairly active over the last few years, with his last bout coming in 2018. Jones Jr. is coming off four straight wins while Tyson hasn’t won a fight since 2003.
