Mike Tyson & Roy Jones Jr Latest Quotes
“If the opportunity comes, I’m always looking for it,” said Mike Tyson to TMZ when asked if he’ll shoot for the knockout against Jones. “You have to come and see.”
‘He wasn’t worried about getting hurt during his tour coming back fighting, so don’t worry about us,” said Tyson in reacting to George Foreman saying that he or Jones Jr could get hurt.
“Tell George that I love him for caring. This is seek and destroy. I’m looking to capturing my glory,” said Iron Mike Tyson.”
“It was a blessing in disguise,” said Roy Jones Jr to Peter Maniatis. “I was just so glad so delighted that (Mike Tyson) chose me as the opponent he wanted to face. I wanted to fight Mike back when I won the heavyweight title back in 2003 but it was never going to happen – but he was the only guy I would have stayed for in the heavyweights to face.”
“So when they came and called for me this time, I said ‘man, it’s a crazy time but people strictly in their house now, they really cannot go far so people want entertainment because we don’t have a lot of sports going on so this is a perfect time for it.”
“I’m just going to box him (Tyson) at first. Stay away from him from that early onslaught. That’s when he will be most dangerous. For the first two or three rounds. After that, I should be able to take over as I have been active and he hasn’t been active. The longer the fight goes the better is for me the worse it is for him”
“So I will just come out and box early – keep my distance. If I keep my distance, the safer it will be for me but at the end of the day where at some point I will have to engage and put the pressure on him. Once I get past that early storm I will have my chance.”
“I am still involved in the music industry and will have a song coming out before the (Mike Tyson) fight. Actually probably a couple of weeks before the fight. I can’t wait.”
“The fight will pretty much be in an empty stadium but if you can’t get motivated for Mike Tyson that means you cannot get motivated. I don’t care who you are. If you know you’re going to share the ring with Mike Tyson and that does not motivate you, there is something wrong with you.”
“I hope you all tune in to the Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Fight. It’s going to be a great night. Two of the most exciting people to be in the boxing ring in the last four decades. It will be one of the best nights ever. I am looking forward to it and thank you all for your support.”
