How to watch Tyson vs Jones Jr

Virgin Media Staff

Mike Tyson makes his surprising return to the ring this weekend, 15 years after his last fight. The 54-year-old, nicknamed ‘Iron Mike’, stunned the boxing world by announcing his decision to come out of retirement this year. He takes on another veteran fighter in Roy Jones Jr, and you can catch all the action on BT Sport Box Office with Virgin TV.

A former undisputed heavyweight champion, Mike Tyson is considered by many to be one of the greatest boxers of all time. He last stepped into the ring in 2005 where he was defeated by Irishman Kevin McBride on a famous night in Washington. His opponent, Roy Jones Jr is himself a former champion across four separate weight divisions. His recent experience is more comprehensive than Tyson’s, with a win against Scott Sigmon on his last bout in 2018.

With 116 fight wins and 91 knockouts between them, this illustrious pair are sure to roll back the years and give us all a great show in an exhibition match for the ages.
