Mike Tyson is stepping back into the ring for the first time in more than 15 years on Saturday for an exhibition match against Roy Jones Jr.

The bout is bound to be entertaining, considering the two fighters are some of the best to have ever done it. Tyson last fought back in 2005, when he fell to Kevin McBride, and Jones is back for the first time since his 2018 win against Scott Sigmon.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Pay-Per-View bout this weekend.

When does the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. fight start?

Date: Saturday, Nov. 28

Location: Staples Center | Los Angeles

How to watch on Pay-Per-View

The fight can be ordered three main ways.

Both FITE.tv and Triller are streaming the fight through their online platforms. It can also be purchased through major TV providers in the United States, including Xfinity, Cox, DirecTV, Spectrum, Verizon and Dish.

Special rules

There are a few special rules for the exhibition fight, which makes sense given that Tyson is 54 years old and Jones is 51.

Both fighters will wear 12 ounce gloves, and no headgear is required. The fight will be an eight round exhibition, with each round lasting just two minutes.

Neither fighter will be tested for marijuana ahead of time either — which is good for Tyson, since he owns his own marijuana ranch in Southern California.
