Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. fought to a draw this past Saturday Night, with the bout being ruled a draw by the celebrity judges and Dana White disagrees with them.
White believes that it was Tyson who beat Jones Jr. in their exhibition boxing fight.
“Tyson won the fight,” White said at the UFC Vegas 15 post-fight press conference (via Mike Bohn & John Morgan of MMA Junkie).
Tyson fought for the first time in over a decade last night, while Jones Jr. competed for the first time in over two years.
The UFC President also says Tyson looked a lot better in the ring than Jones Jr. did.
“I didn’t want to say anything negative because I love Tyson and he’s a good friend of mine,” White said. “I was nervous. He’s (54) years old. Time is undefeated. Time takes us all down and one of the things I was worried for Mike is that he has this incredible aura still, and (54) years old – fighting is young man’s game. All that being said, he looked (expletive) awesome tonight. I was blown away by how good he looked. One of the things I was worried about with Roy – Roy’s 51 years old, but Roy’s been way more active than Tyson has been. But Roy actually got way more tired tonight than Mike, which was shocking. I’m happy for him. I hope they both made a (expletive) zillion dollars, and it exceeded my expectations.”
