The Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. PPV exhibition match is quickly approaching and the lead up is heating up. He sounds motivated, and the results so far speak for themselves.
A fired up “Iron Mike” is one not to be messed with.
“I’m the only boss; if you don’t kick my ass, you’re fired. That’s how sparring is going. Everyone’s doing their best and if you’re not doing your best to hit me, you have to go home. That’s what fighting is all about. I’m paying a guy to kick my ass, if he doesn’t kick my ass, he has to go, he’s fired.”
“I’ve been boxing younger guys and harder guys, and they’re assuring me that I’m doing very well. I’m looking forward to this. The last time I was 215 pounds, I believe I was 18 or 17 years old. I’m really happy with everything that I’ve been doing. Just total confidence and self-affirmation, it’s just amazing. I’m ready to do this stuff. I can’t even explain it with words.
“I look at film of Roy when he was at his best because that’s the guy I anticipate fighting. I’m in the best shape. I boxed seven rounds so far and it keeps improving. I’m boxing younger guys and hungry guys and it’s showing me that, from the looks of things, I’m doing really well.”
The bout is on Nov. 28 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles available on multiple platforms.
