Ythere is less left for him November 28, date on which the combat between Mike Tyson y Roy Jones Jr., an exhibition fight that the second begins to regret having accepted.
It already sounded strange that both pgiles would carry out a fight, which on paper is ‘friendly’, without a protective helmet, because given his age all precautions could be little. The fight was scheduled for eight rounds, and that will not change, but what if it does is the duration of the same. They will be two and not three minutes, as in women’s boxing.
Roy Jones Jr has explained it and the idea seems even detrimental to his interests. “I think the World Boxing Council (WBC) came in and said they wanted to put some kind of title on the line or something, so they want to cut it down to two minute rounds.“, coment.
The former champion added: “He said something about the fight between Arce and Chvez, how fatigued they were after the fight, and They think it’s a safety measure, but what they don’t realize is that the longer you keep Mike cool, the more dangerous it is to me. “. “Things change every week,” he added, annoyed.
The point is that Jones Jr. is beginning to gauge the risks to face the youngest heavyweight champion of all time. It does not seem that these pgiles, who are training more than some professionals, are going to go out to the ring in a relaxed attitude. “When someone like Mike Tyson hits you, anything can happen to you. He’s not just an ordinary hitter, he’s one of those guys who can hurt you,” he explained.
RJ, he’s realistic and he’s starting to see this fight as something very serious: “So, you have to know what you’re getting into and you have to be ready for that because we’re talking about Mike. I really don’t give a damn, I fight for a living. I’m not turning away at all even though I know death is a possibility. Yes, that can happen to anyone, especially if I go there against someone as dangerous as Mike Tyson, “said the former world heavyweight and light heavyweight champion.
Of course, Roy Jones does well to fear his rival, knowing that Tyson was a natural heavyweight and he had to be done. The power that the Brooklyn one had, in part, managed to get it out despite his age.
