Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. was probably more entertaining than it had any business being.
"Iron" Mike looked particularly sharp in his first competitive boxing bout since 2005. Tyson, 54, landed hard shots to the body throughout and generally looked to be the faster, stronger boxer. Despite having boxed as recently as February 2018, the younger Jones, 51, looked out-matched from start-to-finish.

The fight — which was not supposed to be scored in line with the California State Athletic Commission's guidelines — was ruled a draw. The general attitude online is that Tyson performed well especially considering his age and long layoff.
