Mike Tyson Lost His S**t Filming Promo For Fight With Roy Jones Jr

Mike Tyson Lost His S**t Filming Promo For Fight With Roy Jones Jr

Mike Tyson lost it filming a promo for his upcoming comeback fight with Roy Jones Jr.

The 54-year old's return to the ring is being documented in a ten-part series with Triller, who have reported paid "north of $50 million" to secure rights to the fight.

Tyson has been doing plenty of promotional work in the build-up to the bout but he wasn't happy with what he was being asked to say to the camera for one of the clips.

On the instruction of those behind the camera, it appears as though Tyson was asking his opponent Jones to "name a song and a movie that gets you pumped up" for some content but the Baddest Man on the Planet wasn't feeling one bit.

Tyson unleashed: "I don't wanna do this. It's really not me. I wouldn't be saying this bull****.

"I'm not going to ask him to be playing no song or movie or what he likes. You wanna sell the fight, we're not gonna sell it talking f***ing nursery rhymes, f***ing novel stuff.

"A f***ing joke and these guys are not trying to kill each other. Hey, what song or movie gets you pumped up, baby? Come on, man. That's me? That's what you consider me. You consider me a b***h?"

Tyson's eight-round exhibition fight has since been moved from September 12th from November 28th and there's talk that the former world heavyweight champion is keen for the venue to be moved to the Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Texas so that he can perform in front of a socially distanced live crowd.

It was previously claimed that there would be no judges but the latest update is that the fight will in fact be scored and a winner will take home a "specially-commissioned" belt.

In a statement explaining why the fight has been postponed, Tyson said: "Changing the date to November 28th will give more people the opportunity to see the biggest comeback in boxing history.

The 'Frontline Battle' undercard will feature former super middleweight world champion and Floyd Mayweather-affiliated fighter Badou Jack taking on the unbeaten Blake McKernan, as well as YouTuber Jake Paul will face NBA star Nate Robinson.

What's more, it's said there will be "iconic musical performances" in the three-hour event- with rap icons Eminem and Lil Wayne two of the names mentioned.
