Jones Jr, a four-weight world champion fought in 75 bouts, with 66 wins, 47 coming by way of knockout and only 9 losses.

On the other side of the ring, we all know the man dubbed as ‘The Baddest Man on The Planet’ Mike Tyson. We’ve all seen his ferocious style in the ring many years ago and the scary part about that is, recent videos of him hitting the pads don’t look like he has lost any of that ferociousness.

Mike Tyson holds the third-longest unified championship reign in heavyweight history at eight consecutive defences. With 59 bouts, with 50 coming by way of knockout, 6 losses and 2 no contest.

Although 2020 has had more downs than ups for some of us, we can sure look on to an exciting rest of the year as events like this start to build up.

Jheeze, I never thought I’d see a Mike Tyson fight again… Little did I know!
