Mike Tyson officially weighed 10 pounds more than Roy Jones Jr. for their heavyweight comeback fight on Saturday night.
Tyson hit the scale at 220.4 lbs for the fight, which means he’s LIGHTER than he was for his heavyweight title fight against Trevor Berbick.
As for Jones, the former four-weight world champion weighed 210 pounds for the fight – barely above the heavyweight limit – although this is hardly surprising given that he started his career as than average weight.
The consensus would suggest that Tyson, as the puncher in this fight, must start fast and seek to stop the Lighter Man.
Speaking after the weigh-in, the youngest heavyweight champion looks as intense and hip as he did in his prime.
“I throw punches, everything else is up to Roy,” he said. “If I run somewhere, I run right at him.”
The undercard is packed with a wide range of experiences and newbies, with YouTube star Jake Paul taking on former NBA star Nate Robinson just before the main event.
Wearing a Super Saiyan wig in order to honor a character from Dragon Ball Z, Paul admitted he hopes to move up to 2-0 in his professional career with a “ bloody ” performance.
“I love sport, I was made for it,” he says. “This is the opportunity to prove people wrong.
“I am ready to take the world by storm. “Nate’s kids, if you watch, don’t watch the fight, it’s gonna be bad. It’s going to be bloody.
