They’ll be a belt on the line for the upcoming exhibition bout between Mike Tyson (50-6 2 NC) and Roy Jones Jr. (66-9), with both men competing for the WBC Frontline Battle title on November 28.

ESPN’s Ariel Helwani posted a picture of the belt on Twitter, which you can see below.

Tyson, 54, hasn’t fought in a professional capacity since 2005, when he suffered a stoppage loss to Kevin Brigade at the MCI Center in Washington, DC. ‘Iron Mike’s’ last win came in 2003, when he finished Clifford Etienne via first round KO. Roy Jones Jr., on the other hand, has been considerably more active. The 51-year-old is on a four-fight win streak but hasn’t fought since his 2018 win over Scott Sigman, which saw the boxing legend capture the vacant WBU cruiserweight title.

Tyson vs. Jones Jr. will take place next month, Nov. 28 at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.
