Tonight on Fite TV, ‘The Baddest Man on the Planet’ will step between the ropes and fight for the first time in 14 years. It might be an “exhibition” fight, but Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. say they’re coming to fight. The bout will have some strange rules - eight two-minute rounds, “no knockdowns”, and no official result or judges but the WBC has nonetheless commissioned former champions Christy Martin, Chad Dawson and Vinny Pazienza to score the fight in an unofficial capacity - but it will be an interesting sideshow nonetheless.
The card will also feature a match between former NBA player Nate Robinson and YouTube guy Jake Paul. That will be covered in a separate post.
Join us on Bloody Elbow for all the silly antics. The main card will kick off on Fite TV at 9pm, and costs $49.95.
