Speaking after the result, 'Iron' Mike said: "Sometimes that two minutes felt like three minutes.

"I'm just happy I got this under my belt and I'm going to continue to go further and do more, absolutely."

Jones Jr said: "We gotta do this again. Everybody loves Mike, I love Mike too.

"But it's tough to take the punches from Mike, so I'll go talk to my family, see how they feel about it."
