This article is about the American boxer and media personality. For other people named Mike Tyson, see Mike Tyson (disambiguation).
Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr., billed as "Lockdown Knockdown", was an eight-round exhibition boxing match contested between former undisputed heavyweight world champion Mike Tyson and former four-division world champion Roy Jones Jr. The bout took place at Staples Center in Los Angeles on November 28, 2020, and was sanctioned by the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC). With three former WBC champions acting as judges, the result was scored as a controversial split draw.
Jones' last bout of his 29-year-long career took place on February 8, 2018, in which he defeated Scott Sigmon via unanimous decision at the Bay Center In Pensacola, Florida. Jones announced his retirement after the bout, but left the door open for a return against UFC fighter Anderson Silva, saying, "Dana, I know you're listening. I know Anderson's suspended. But that's the only other fight Roy Jones will return to the ring for. Other than that, chapter's closed."
If you watched Mike Tyson at the height of his powers in the 1980s, and at his lowest lows following that, it’s wild to now see how “Iron Mike” has become a slice of Americana in 2021.
