Two iconic boxers had a press conference today (October 29th) with the final destination being The Staples Center in Los Angeles. It will be Livestreamed on Triller for fans to pay to watch the event go down.

The California State Athletic Commission has said this is just an exhibition for fun and we won’t see very much violence. Whether Mike Tyson or Roy Jones will take this fight lightly is a different story.

“We got Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. — and I’m coming to fight,” Tyson said. “I hope [Roy is] coming to fight and that’s all you need to know.”

“The last guy who did an exhibition with Mike got dropped in the 1st round. And if you don’t know that, there’s something wrong with you,” Jones said in response. “Who goes in the ring with the great, legendary Mike Tyson and thinks, ‘Oh, this is an exhibition?! 12-ounce gloves, no headgear? Really? This is an exhibition? Come on, bruh. Be for real.”

The press conference could be seen below which lasted a few hours.
