The world received a treat with some escapism from the current pandemic happening worldwide. The two giants of boxing in the iconic Roy Jones Jr. and “Iron” Mike Tyson, returned to the ring for humanitarian reasons in a charity event.
The match up ended in a draw, but both competitors were fine with the conclusion although they would have rather seen a winner. During the bout, Tyson showed he still had remnants of his world renown power. Roy Jones Jr. at the start gave fans a glimpse at his quick feet.
At the end of it all, both men showed that they could still entertain fans even at their advanced age for the sport. Jake Paul, the youtube sensation, stepped into the ring with former NBA star, Nate Robinson for an exhibition as well.
Jake Paul who had previously fought, showed his experience was an advantage when he knocked out Nate Robinson. Other entertainment figures who performed singing their hit songs included Snoop Dogg, YG, and Wiz Khalifa. Lil’ Wayne was originally slated for an appearance, but backed out at the last minute.
