You must go back to 2005 to find the last time Tyson was involved in a competitive boxing match. He lost to Irishman Kevin McBride in the 6th round at the MCI Center, Washington DC. It was only the 6th loss in Tyson’s career and he has fought a total of 58 times. Three of those defeats have come in his last four fights and that is not a good sign heading into this contest.
The last time Tyson fought in the boxing ring was when he was 38 years old and he is now 54, which surely means he is going to be worse off physically.

2. Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr Predictions
Roy Jones Jr is 3 years younger than his opponent but with both fighters in their 50’s, it may not make a lot of difference. However, what could make a significant difference is the fact Jones Jr has been in action more recently than Tyson. In fact, you only have to go back to February 2018 to find the last time Jones Jr was in action. He defeated Scott Sigmon by unanimous decision following 10 rounds of boxing.
Having been knocked out by Enzo Maccarinelli in December 2015, Jones Jr has since gone on to win four straight fights. In addition to the victory over Sigmon, Jones Jr has defeated Vyron Phillips, Rodney Moore and Bobby Gunn. You must go back to the period between 2009 and 2011 to find the last time Jones Jr lost a series of fights when he was defeated by Danny Green, Bernard Hopkins, and Denis Lebedev in succession.
When both fighters were at their peak in the 1990s, it was Jones Jr who was named boxer of the decade.

3. Tyson vs Jones Jr Betting Odds
Many people are predicting that both men will be wearing 12-ounce gloves and it appears unlikely they are going to be going for a single knockout blow to the head. Jones Jr is surely going to be the quicker of the two men and by using his footwork he has the ability to score higher on the judge’s scorecards. Tyson will want the match to become scrappy and fought at close range. This will allow the 54 year old to use his power punches and cause some damage to his opponent.
Perhaps the biggest question is just how serious both men are going to take the fight? However, given he has the most recent boxing history, a decision victory for Jones Jr seems the best bet. As soon as the full Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr odds have been released, you will find them here.
