'The Baddest Man on the Planet' is getting ready to fight for the first time in 15 years and he'll slug it out with fellow heavyweight Jones Jr on November 28.
BT Sport Box Office 2 are carrying the show for Brits and per talkSPORT, it'll set fans back £19.95 on pay-per-view or €29.99 in Ireland.
That means it'll be £5 cheaper than Tyson Fury's victory over Deontay Wilder back in February and Anthony Joshua's triumph against Andy Ruiz Jr last December.

"I just came out to my partner's house. She lives out here, [Dana Point, California]" Tyson told FightHype earlier this year. "We've just been training, boxing, and it feels great man. I come from 289lbs to 220lbs. And I feel good."

Tyson and Jones were slated to meet way back in 2003 but 17 years on, the legendary pair are mixing it up for eight two minute rounds.
Jones Jr is aware of the threat 'Iron Mike' possesses and he's even prepared to die inside the Staples Centre.
"Mike Tyson is not just an ordinary puncher," he stated.
"I love boxing, so if I've gotta die boxing I'm gonna die a happy man. There are other ways I'd rather go, but if I went that way I'm not mad at that."
