Boxing legends Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr face off in a spectacular exhibition fight in Los Angeles this weekend.

Tyson, 54, will fight Jones, 51, in a long-awaited fight, with the meanest man on the planet throwing an incredible SIX stone to get fit for the crash.

The California State Commission says the exhibition will be played under the rules that both men will not seek the knockout and instead “show off” their skills, but both fighters have come out and said otherwise.

Forster said: “Tyson and Jones Jr. will not wear caps to the fight. They will be tying 12 oz gloves and there will be no judge present at the fight to score the action. So technically, there will be no winner unless a knockout occurs in some way, or either fighter is deemed unfit to continue.

“They can move around and earn some money, but I told them if they cut you, it’s over.”

Mike Tyson: “We are throwing punches at each other. This will be my definition of fun … broken eye sockets, broken jaw, broken rib. That’s fun to me. “

Roy Jones Jr: “He’s still Mike Tyson, he’s still one of the strongest and most explosive people to ever touch a boxing ring. In any case, I made a mistake entering with him.

“He’s the bigger guy, he’s the explosive guy. He will have all the fireworks from the first round, not me.

“I have first-round fireworks, but he’s known for more first-round fireworks than anyone who has ever touched boxing other than George Foreman.”
