Mike Tyson told how he decided to fight with Roy Jones.
The former world champion in the heavyweight Mike Tyson (50-6, 44 KO’s) admitted that he goes into the ring not because of jealousy and not for the money. Boxer also said it agreed to the fight with Roy Jones (66-9, 47 KO’s).
“My son said to me, “Look, I know you don’t want to box, but maybe you would meet with Bob SAPP? There are people who are ready to offer you money for fight with him.” I said, “get out of here, I told you I don’t want to fight”.
And then I thought about it and said he would fight with SAPP. After that we started to discuss the candidacy of other candidates and, as we all know, September 12, I will fight with Roy Jones.
Don’t know how it happened. I’m just very grateful that I no longer lead the lifestyle that I had. God blessed me for it.
I’m going to participate in different charity events. Don’t think I’m doing it to get rich. And do not say that I go for it due to jealousy or for money. I get nothing. I just feel good and Boxing, because they know how to do it”, – quotes Tyson Boxing Scene.
Fight Tyson – Jones is scheduled for September 12 in Los Angeles. The fight will take place without judges.
