Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr to be scored with winner receiving special belt as ex-world champ Badou Jack joins undercard

MIKE TYSON’S upcoming fight against Roy Jones Jr will reportedly be scored.

TMZ claims the winner of the eight-round battle will receive a special belt.

And boxing fans have even more reason for tuning in after ex-world champ Badou Jack was added to the undercard with a fight against undefeated Blake McKernan.

Legendary heavyweight Tyson, 54, will square off against Jones Jr, 51, on November 28.

The California clash was originally set for September 12.

But it has been pushed back to coincide with the Thanksgiving weekend.

Tyson, who will weigh three stone more than his opponent, explained: “Changing the date to November 28 will give more people the opportunity to see the biggest comeback in boxing history.

“This temporary inconvenience will last longer than Roy Jones Jr.

“He better be ready, I’m coming full force.”

And despite originally being billed as a fight with no winner, Tyson vs Jones Jr will now be scored with a special belt up for grabs.

That’s good news for Tyson, who recently revealed he was going to go in search of a KO despite the bout’s earlier friendly appearance.

He told TMZ: “If the opportunity comes, I’m always looking for it.

“This is search and destroy and I’m looking forward to recapturing my glory.”

There are plenty of other fights occurring on the night, with YouTuber Jake Paul taking on ex-NBA star Nate Robinson.

KSI’s trainer Viddal Riley will also be making an appearance after former MMA ace Rashad Coulter.
