Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. fight card is to be held at The Staples Center in Los Angeles (California).
Mike Tyson: “I think I’m in a great phase. I’ve been training too much. At first, I was kind of resistant to the idea, but what could an opponent do for me that I couldn’t defend myself? Then I was offered some opportunities here and there and now I’m ready for that.”
Roy Jones Jr: “I still have my boxing with me, my game is still here. He (Tyson) is training well, hitting the bag well, we are two explosive fighters. It looks like we’re young again.”

Tyson on why he is taking the fight: “It’s because I can do it. And I believe other people believe they can do it too.
“Just because we are 54, it doesn’t mean that we have to start a new career and our lives are totally over. Not when you feel as beautiful as I do, and I’m sure that other people feel the same way.
“I never took that many punches. After the last fight I had, I left and I lived my life, and I’ve been through some experiences, and now I’m back here. I feel like I took better care of my body and my state of mind than most of the fighters before me that retired and came back.”
Jones Jr on why he is taking the fight: “I’ve been trying to enjoy retirement, but people don’t seem to want to let me retire. They keep calling me, telling me that Mike wants to come back, and that you’d be a great opponent for Mike.
“We always wanted to see it, but I would’ve preferred it back then. Tyson is a hell of a specimen still. Still a problem to deal with. But at the same time, life is life, you only live once. You want to know what it’s like, you go in there and see. You still gotta see it.”
