We’ve been watching the Mike Tyson training videos and they’ve made us actually excited for his fight with Roy Jones Jr. The fight got postponed from September 12th until November 28th, and the logistics of this delay have led Jones to threaten to pull out of the fight.
The fight is being hosted by the streaming app Triller, which moved the date in part due to the hope they could have fans. Jones tells Daily Mail that he planned his year around fighting in September, and that if they make money from having fans he should get a cut of it.
“Why would I change the date and mess up the rest of my year when I agreed to September 12,” Jones asked. “They said they wanted to get a crowd, if you want to get a crowd, that’s a different type of money. If you want a big event, that’s a different type of money. You think I’m going to say, okay, let’s look at my money, but I’m not getting no better percent. How dumb is that to me? So let’s see what happens.”
Jones has some fair points here — he says his lawyers are talking to their lawyers; hopefully an equitable resolution is reached.
