The last bullet point may be the most important. Tyson is in the best shape of his life since he held the championship belts. Not only that, but in recent interviews, Tyson has been downright giddy about the prospect of stepping into the ring to battle Roy Jones.
A motivated Mike Tyson will make for a great fight. Tyson has said that he knows only one way to fight, and that’s to try and destroy his opponents. Roy should take the former champ’s statements to heart.
So should pay per head agents. Iron Mike is the favorite to win on November 28. If agents don’t set max betting limits and possibly even max payout limits on Tyson, boxing handicappers could use free betting software to make huge bets on Tyson to get the win.
Who is Roy Jones Jr.?
Roy Jones Jr. fought at a lower weight-class than Tyson. Like Iron Mike, most boxing historians regard Superman as one of the best of all time. Here are a few facts about Roy Jones Jr. that you can pass to your players.

Jones Jr.’s fights have a much different style than Mike Tyson. Like Iron Mike, he’s trained hard for the upcoming battle. If Jones uses his jab and wraps Tyson when he’s close, Roy does have a path to victory.
He’s lost some speed, but his boxing IQ is just as high as Tyson’s. The two should have an excellent chess match going in the early rounds. Because of that, per head bookie agents should also set max betting limits on Roy Jones Jr.
