The November 28th Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. exhibition is to be scored over eight rounds which was not the original plan.
“Changing the date to November 28th will give more people the opportunity to see the biggest comeback in boxing history,” said Tyson. “Anyone who thinks this is anything but Roy and I attempting to knock each other out doesn’t know me. This temporary inconvenience will last longer than Roy Jones Jr.”
From the many reports currently circulating the internet, the California State Athletic Commission seem to be the governing body overseeing the event with the referee still not officially announced.
