“First of all, if you think you can go into the ring with Mike Tyson, the last guy that did an exhibition with Mike got dropped in the first round. If you don’t know that, there is something wrong with you,” Jones Jr. said. “Who goes in the ring with the great, legendary Mike Tyson and thinks, oh, this is an exhibition? Twelve-ounce gloves, no headgear? Really? This is an exhibition? Come on bruh, be for real.”
