The PPV card is $49.95 and can be ordered through fite.tv. Or, save your dough and check out our show!
For those who have escaped knowledge of these two boxing legends...
We have Roy Jones, Jr, a “former pound-for-pound king, who - at his best - dazzled fans with his blinding hand speed, a signature left hook, cat-quick reflexes and God-given physical talent to defy all boxing fundamentals while inspiring future stars. Jones won titles in the middleweight, super middleweight and heavyweight divisions. Through his first 50 bouts, Jones’ only loss was via disqualification to Montell Griffin. He easily regained his title in a rematch with a devastating left hook/uppercut that floored Griffin. To the 51 year old Jones, fighting Tyson is a bucket list moment, even with Iron Mike being 54 years old.”
On the other side of the ring, we have the heavily favored, ‘Iron Mike’ Tyson — a ferocious and intimidating boxer who became a household name. He’s formerly been known as ‘Kid Dynamite’ and ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’, but mostly he is known for being one of the best heavyweight boxers of all time. He holds the record as the youngest boxer to win a heavyweight title, claiming his first belt at just 20 years of age, before going on to knock out every single opponent in his first 19 professional fights; 12 of them in the first round. Beyond those achievements, he is also the only heavyweight to have ever held and unified the WBA, WBC and IBF Titles in succession. “Tyson was known for his ferocious and intimidating boxing style as well as his controversial behavior inside and outside the ring.” Most notably, the time he was disqualified in a title rematch when he bit off a portion of Evander Holyfield’s right ear.
Also on the card, we have a WBC USNBC Featherweight Title Bout taking place between Irvin Gonzalez and Edward ‘Kid’ Vazquez. Also, a WBC USNBC Heavyweight Title Match between Gregory ‘Bad News’ Corbin and Joe Cusumano, and a WBC USNBC Silver Lightweight Title tilt between the Ugandan brawler Sulamain Segawa and Jamaine Ortiz. As if that’s not enough heavy hands action, the card also features ‘YouTube guy’ Jake Paul and former NBA 3-time slam dunk champion Nate Robinson,
as well as former UFC Heavyweight Rashad Coulter stepping into the ring (Coulter Cancelled). What a wild night full of fights we have to share with you!
