[VIDEO] Mike Tyson and Jon Jones slap box


The youngest UFC champion in history, Jon Jones, and the youngest boxing heavyweight world champion ever, Mike Tyson, recently got into a friendly slap-box sparring match (video above). As expected, Jones tried to keep the distance with his long reach and Tyson had to bob and weave to get in on the inside. 

Once "Kid Dynamite" did, however, the session quickly escalated into a smiling bro-hug fest. Check out the video above and let us know who you'd pick in a brawl for it all between a Jones and Tyson in their primes.

Ps. What the heck was Jones doing slap-boxing with stiches over his eye and an injured knee and ankle? Anyway...
