Hey everyone! Do you want to pay $50 to watch two 50-year-olds punch each other with the worst possible boxing rules? This is my opinion of course, but I am 99% sure you’ll agree that two older guys hitting each other lightly with a NO KNOCKOUT rule during a participation trophy boxing match is probably not worth $50!
I certainly do not!
We’ve got Mike Tyson, 54, squaring up with Roy Jones Jr., 51, for 105 years worth of manbags swinging around in a boxing match where they’re not even allowed to punch hard.
When I first heard of this match, I thought it would be kinda cool to watch two old guys punch each other in the face for old times sake. Then I saw the rules and started laughing. I wasn’t laughing at Tyson or Jones Jr, I was laughing at the people who are literally going to pay for this and thinking about how bad they’re getting ripped off for the most gimmick fight since we’ve seen Manute Bol try MMA.
Are you guys seriously going to spend money on a boxing match where they are literally not allowed to knock each other out?
I like Tyson and I don’t care about Jones Jr, but I don’t really want anything bad to happen to them in the ring. But… I also want to see a good fight and some brutality – and we’re not going to get that with this money grab trickery match.
So what are the rules? Well, for starters, they’re stupid. Second, here’s a list from some random guy on Twitter:
Eight, Two-Minute Rounds
Bigger, 12oz Gloves
Fight Stopped If There’s A CutNo Official Judges Or Winner
WBC Have Ex-Fighters Judging
(Their Scores Are Unofficial)
What the hell is this nonsense? If you get punched above the eye, it sometimes cuts open. So if one of these guys gets popped in the first thirty seconds of the match, it’s technically over! Are they going to give people money back for wasting it on a little drip above the eye? I could see if Roy Jones Jr.’s eye gets bitten out by Tyson, then MAYBE we stop the match, but this is straight up BS.
No judges or winners? Oh, so we got two of the baddest dudes on the planet playing tag for a participation trophy.
Count me out. This is 100% WASTE OF MONEY and I’m not gonna pay for it.
There’s more action watching an Antifa protest than this.
Also, Roy Jones Jr. looks like Cuba Gooding Jr. with muscles.
