Mike Tyson Clearly Outclassed Roy Jones Jr., Got Jobbed in Draw Ruling

Mike Tyson, 54, fought Roy Jones Jr., 51, tonight in a fight that actually cleared the bar of my expectations. Jones was plodding, but he did manage to stay upright for eight rounds as Tyson was clearly in substantially better shape. The fight was ruled a draw by three WBC judges. I’m not, like, an expert boxing judge, but uh Tyson was clearly and obviously the better boxer in this fight.

This is not to say that Tyson was in his prime or anything, but for a 54-year-old he was still pretty ferocious and I’m not sure how many people on the planet there are who could beat him in a fight, even today.
