Why did Mike Tyson propose to move the match with Roy Jones to the end of the year

Mike Tyson’s team is still hoping that one day the US, COVID-19 will be safe again.

Legendary Mike Tyson recently signed a contract with another Boxing legend, Roy Jones Jr in September. However, recently, this match was postponed until November 28. Mike Tyson’s team believes that rescheduling this match will help the event maximize revenue.

As expected, Mike Tyson will face Roy Jones Jr. in a friendly match that did not focus on win-lose and lasted 8 innings. The match is scheduled to be held at Dignity Health Park, California without spectators. Mike Tyson’s team said that resigning the match at the end of the year would give the event a chance to hold a live ticket sale instead of having to fight ‘run’ as originally planned. 

Another problem that happens during negotiation is the competition helmet. The California State Sports Commission (CSAC), which licensed the match, asked two veterans to wear helmets during the match, making this friendly match a “colorful sparring”, At least according to the insiders. 

In addition, the delay of the 3-month schedule has even helped Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. There is more time to prepare. Whether accidentally or intentionally, the new schedule is exactly 12 weeks away from the present – the most ideal time to prepare for a match. This issue also caused the Roy Jones side to question:  “Will Mike Tyson suddenly lose blood and rush to attack so hard to look for KO?”

Mr. Andy Fosster, CEO of CSAC initially said:  “This is not a match where the two are going to try to kill each other. They just go in there, move, and then show the fans to the fans. only statue”. However, if Mike Tyson suddenly “went crazy” like he used to play, Roy Jones could not turn to Foster and say:  “Hey! Do something.” 

For that reason, although this is only a friendly match, the difference in weight rank and other technical risks, both punchers will still have to enter the friendly match with the same posture as the profession.

Stipe Miocic is confident that defeating Jon Jones is sooner or later

UFC champion Stipe Miocic believes that his defeat of the two most talented punchers in the heavyweight – semi-heavy category is just a matter of time, one way.

Expected to confront Daniel Cormier at UFC 252, Stipe Miocic is responsible for protecting the second heavy belt against this opponent.

In addition to defeating “DC” to assert themselves as “the strongest heavyweight in history”, Miocic also aimed at an equally valuable name – Jon Jones. 

The promotion story with Jon Jones has long been discussed. However, the heavy changing of the king constantly makes people still hesitate about an authentic Super Fight match between the 2 most talented fighters in each weight class.

“Of course, I totally agree it was a great match for both me and Jones. I believe I will end the match with victory in hand, he is in a different weight class, not my forte. That’s why I believe I will do well. ” – Miocic confidently said.

Not only Stipe, a lot of the audience wants Jones to be heavy, where there are good bodybuilders and powerful Boxing skills, one of Jones’ inherent engravings. 

With Francis Ngannou, Daniel Cormier or the previous generation of boxers like Alistair Overreem, Junior Dos Santos, Stipe Miocic have shown the bravery of a technical punch, smart, hard-headed and comprehensive.

Although, compared to the body, Stipe Miocic is still inferior to Jon Jones in stride (80 inches compared to 84 inches of Jones).

However, the firefighter from Cleveland has much better Boxing skills and stamina than the boxers who made it difficult for Jon Jones like Dominick Reyes, Thiago Santos or Alexander Gustafsson.

Although confident, but to be able to face Jon Jones, Stipe Miocic still needs to ensure the No. 1 position in his heavyweight, ahead of Daniel Cormier ahead at UFC 252 here.

In addition, there is another boxer waiting to compete for the title of “The Predator” Francis Ngannou – the boxer who failed before Stipe is anxious to revenge. On the Jones side, the heavyweight champion has not reappeared since UFC 247 with controversial results against Dominick Reyes. Currently, President Dana White has not revealed any plans for him this year.
