The Real Reason Mike Tyson Vs Roy Jones Jr Fight Was Delayed By Two Months

published ata month ago

Jones Jr suggested he could make as much as $10 million (£7.8 million) if PPV sales are strong.

And speaking ahead of their bout, the 51-year-old fired a warning to his upcoming opponent.

"I understand because Mike doesn't just look like a killer he is a killer," he said.

"If Mike doesn't kill quick he's fighting one of the smartest savviest guys to ever do the thing, if he don't kill quick he's in trouble. 'If you don't kill right away what are you going to do? I seen all those smoking videos don't think I don't know what's going on, I'm not stupid."

He added: "I'm not going to try and go out there in the first round and take him out like I'm a fool. He's still strong early, he's still a strong lion.

"But I've got a cheetah's mentality which means I've got to get quick. If he don't kill me quick his ass belongs to me then."
