Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr: Who is richer before the battle?

Let’s look at the property of two heavy boxing village monuments before the end of the match on November 29.

The return of Mike Tyson in the match against Roy Jones Jr this weekend, essentially does not bring many elements of expertise because of the limited competition rules. The audience simply wants to see what two monuments of the world boxing village will look like when they confront each other on the ring.

With Mike Tyson, it’s been nearly 30 years since the American boxer shook the boxing world with his quick knockout victories.

During his heyday, Mike Tyson raked in about $ 430 million in compensation for all of his matches, making him one of the most expensive boxers in the world. In particular, the confrontation with Lennox Lewis in 2000 was the biggest revenue match when Mike brought in nearly $ 150 million.

If calculated by the rate of inflation, Mike’s total tournament compensation is about $ 700 million at the present time (the figure is estimated by Celebritynetworth). This number is still not easy to achieve, whether it is the current top stars such as Canelo Alvarez, Tyson Fury or Anthony Joshua.

However, after the bankruptcy shock of the early 2000s and the financial revival of recent years, Mike Tyson’s net worth was estimated at only $ 3 million. The former American boxer has a company that produces and sells cannabis-related products with a revenue of about 500 thousand dollars per month.

Mike’s is currently busy with his own company.

It was with Mike Tyson – one of the biggest monuments in the boxing world, and what about his rival Roy Jones Jr?

Not as famous as Mike Tyson, but Roy Jones Jr is also considered one of the most successful punchers in the world with the title of world champion in 4 different weight categories.

In addition to boxing competition, Roy Jones Jr is also known for his music projects and owns a company promoting his own martial arts – Roy Jones Jr Promotions. The business activities help the 51-year-old boxer keep a net worth of about 5 million dollars to date.

Will Deontay Wilder accept Anthony Joshua to give up Tyson Fury?

Whether a replacement money could make Deontay Wilder accept the position of Tyson Fury’s next rival to Deontay Wilder.

Last February, Tyson Fury became the first fighter to knock out the American “Copper Bomb” Deontay Wilder. Thereby, “The Gypsy King” has brought the prestigious WBC Heavyweight belt back to England after nearly 20 years, since the time Lennox Lewis acquired this title in 2001.

Immediately, the world Boxing Village towards the prospect of a match 4 heavy belts “all over England”. When outside the WBC belt at the hands of Tyson Fury, the remaining three noble titles of Heavy Boxing – WBA, WBO and IBF – are in the hands of Anthony Joshua after the victory over Andy Ruiz last December.

Deontay Wilder có chấp nhận nhường bước Anthony Joshua đấu Tyson Fury?

However, this idea is hindered by the rematch contract between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury. In the event that Fury wins a rematch, Wilder reserves the right to request a second rematch immediately. And not unexpected, the Wilder side was notorious for this proposal immediately after the defeat in February.

Recently, the sources of The Athletic website said that the match between Tyson Fury vs. Anthony Joshua is being discussed to take place in December this year in Saudi Arabia. And for Wilder to agree to wait for Fury to fight Joshua, “The Gypsy King” will have to pay a “step-aside money” to the American punch.

In response to this information, Fury’s English boss Frank Warren denied that he had offered to make room for Wilder. But Warren also insisted he was looking forward to seeing the Fury vs. Battle. Joshua takes place in the near future.

“I want that match to happen, for the sake of sports and British Boxing. It seems that everyone wants to watch that match and has chosen their own winner. I believe Tyson can defeat Joshua like he did with Wilder” – Frank Warren said.

Interesting stories behind the tattoo on Mike Tyson’s face (Part 2)

To a man full of fear

Scheduled to fight with Clifford Etienne in 2003, eight months after the defeat against Lennox Lewis. Mike Tyson, meanwhile, has shown a clear downward signal. Nothing was worth mentioning until just a few days before the match, Mike suddenly got excited to get a tattoo right on his face. For those who have tattooed, everyone will understand that, a skin is not dry ink is a very vulnerable skin.

Mike just revived after his KO defeat against Lewis, and he continued to throw away more than half of his chances of winning with an impromptu tattoo. Coach Jeff Fenech, who coached Mike during that time, said: “One day, I was waiting for him at the gym and Mike didn’t show up. When I came home, it would be 5 or 6 hours. There, Mike appeared.

I looked at the big tattoo that covered Mike’s face and said, “Mike, you can’t fight.” As far as I know, with the new tattoos that you punched, they would be very susceptible to infection, so I think he can’t fight. “

Freddie Roach also replaced Jeff to stand on the sidelines for Mike Tyson. Winning in 48 seconds, Mike didn’t know that this was the last victory in his illustrious career. Jeff Fenech continued: “Mike told me that he would not play, but then SHOWTIME threatened to sue him so Mike was forced to go on the radio and KO his opponent.”

Perhaps in a moment, Mike Tyson knows fear. 16-year-old Mike Tyson sobbed during his amateur match. A notorious Mike Tyson also went tattooed just to avoid a match. And that same Mike Tyson at the end of his career was ready to give up the game for a dove.

Mike Tyson is a sentimental person. It was something anyone could see in him. But in a way, he became a god on the stage. The biggest pity the world has for Mike Tyson is probably when he let the “Steel” Mike ego overwhelm his everyday sentimental person.
