Iron Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. danced their way to a draw in their 8 round snore fest on Saturday. Showing every bit of two middle aged retired pugilists, the combatants? Slogged thru an 8 round exhibition.
Tyson was more aggressive while Jones was more athletic. Both fighters worked the body and when each landed a punch and immediate hugging match ensued.
Both boxers landed two quality head punches but each shrugged them off. Jones seemed out of breath in the first three rounds while Tyson took his turn in the last four. Jones ducked a Tyson classic left right combination in round six.
That was the highlight of the “event”… as expected, the bout was ruled a “draw”… setting up a rematch? I really hope not…
