Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr fight ruled a draw, Tyson plans to fight again

Mike Tyson, 54, stepped in the boxing ring for the first time in 15 years on Saturday night. He took on 51-year-old Roy Jones Jr, who last fought in 2018.

Mauro Ranallo, who was calling the action with Sugar Ray Leonard and Israel Adesanya, noted that Tyson lost 100 pounds over the last couple of years.

Saint JHN and Snoop Dogg performed before the main event got started. Ne-Yo sang the National Anthem and Michael Buffer announced the competitors.

Here are the round-by-round notes from the fight:

Round 1: Tyson was the aggressor during this round with more punches landed. Tyson was also much faster than Jones. Tyson likely won that round.

Round 2: Jones was already breathing hard after the 1st round. Tyson was the aggressor here as well and Jones kept locking up after Tyson landed some head punches. Tyson won this round.

Round 3: Jones started the round with a left to the face. It was not clear who won this round because they kept locking up.

Round 4: Tyson still seems to be the fresher man of the two up to this point. Tyson started off by attacking Jones up against the ropes. Tyson continued to be the aggressor. Jones tried to clinch but it was Tyson who landed more punches, mostly to the body.

Round 5: Jones was exhausted and Tyson still looked in good cardio shape. Tyson hurt Jones with some clear shots to the head and body.

Round 6: Again, Tyson got some more shots to the body and Jones went to clinch and smother Tyson. Tyson is winning this fight unless Jones somehow gets a knockout in the final 2 rounds.

Round 7: This was more of the same with Tyson hitting mostly body shots and Jones playing defense by clinching and leaning in on Tyson.

Round 8: Tyson landed more body punches and Jones clinched. Tyson clearly won this fight.

Triller brought in their own judges since there are no commission judges for an exhibition fight.

The fight was ruled a draw by the judges appointed by Triller. Tyson and Jones shook hands. Tyson said he wants to box again and he wants Jones to be on the card as well. Jones said he needs to talk to his family before he decides to box again.
