When is Mike Tyson returning?

The stipulated date for the former Heavyweight champion to return was set for September 12th but has been moved to November 28th.

Who is fighting Mike Tyson?

As one man of the caliber of Tyson return, a huge name has to be the one in front. Otherwise, it would be total annihilation. Therefore, the chosen one to face Iron Mike is none other than Roy Jones Jr.

Jones Jr. is a former four-division champion, including heavyweight, even though he started as a junior middleweight. Jones Jr. was a scary man also, with a record of 66-9 (47 KOs). We will see fireworks in the ring.

What's Mike Tyson's status for this boxing match?

Let's get something out of the way; this is not a professional boxing event. Jones Jr. is retired since 2018. His prime was in the 1990s, all the way until early 2000s, he amassed a record of 49-1, with the only loss coming via disqualification.

Tyson retired in 2005, with a professional boxing record of 50-6-2 NC, 44 KOs, and an 88% knockout rate in his victories. It's been 15 years since Iron Mike taped his hands professionally, although he's made some exhibition fights afterward.

What's the venue for the fight?

Currently, the bout will be at the Dignity Health Sports Arena in Los Angeles.

How can I watch the fight? 

It's a charity exhibition fight that will be available on PPV.

Is the fight safe?

An all-important question because you have two 50-year-olds fighting each other. Not to mention, they both have some of the most feared punchers in history.

No worries, though. They will use 12-oz gloves and -reportedly- won't be looking for any knockouts. That's on paper, though, we know how dirty boxing can get in a heartbeat.
