Mike Tyson returns to the ring for his first professional fight in 15 years against Roy Jones Jr in a glitzy eight-round exhibition bout in Los Angeles.


Iron Mike retired with 50 wins under his belt, 44 by KO, and six defeats, three of which came during his final four fights.

The Baddest Man on the Planet is considered among the greatest heavyweight fighters of all time and the 54-year-old will hope to put on a show against another retired great.

Jones Jr only hung up the gloves in 2018 after a sprawling 29-year career spanning four different decades.

The 51-year-old recorded 66 victories in 75 bouts throughout his long career and picked up multiple titles in four different weight categories.
