Mike Tyson Ridiculously Jacked Ahead of Roy Jones Fight

It’s been such a crazy world the past few weeks that I honestly forgot that Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. are fighting on November 28th. This is one of those fights where I wish my brain was wired differently and I could look away, but I’ve been tantalized by it for awhile because Tyson is in ridiculous shape. The latest evidence of that comes from Tyson’s Instagram. The image is a little dark, but you can tell from the contour that he’s essentially got the figure he had in the mid-90s:

Here’s a training video he posted about a month ago:

Tyson is 54 years old, and Jones is 51. No one is expecting a fight that they could have delivered in their respective primes, but I think it’s going to be a lot more compelling than people reflexively realize.

While the fighters expressed frustration that rounds will be only two minutes long, it’s probably a good thing.

  1. He may look good but even in his prime cardio was never Tysons strong suit both dudes in their 50s they should enjoy their retirement but Jones Jr is no joke and in his prime was one of the best ever. No one has ever laid a beat down on Jones and it ain’t happening here just enjoy for entertainment value i guess

    • Jones has been beat up several times. The worst was the one that signaled the end of his prime, the 2nd fight against Tarver. He was in his mid-30’s by then, but kept fighting for years and was KO’d several more times thereafter. In his prime he could not be touched. The best athlete to ever compete in the sport I think.
