Tyson hit the scales at 220.4lbs for the bout, which means he is LIGHTER than he was for his heavyweight title fight against Trevor Berbick.

As for Jones, the former four-weight world champion weighed in at 210lbs for the bout barely above the heavyweight limit although it is hardly surprising considering he started his career as a middleweight.
The consensus would suggest that Tyson, as the puncher in this bout, must start fast and look top stop the lighter man.
Speaking after the weigh in, the youngest heavyweight champion sounds as intense and as switched on as he did in his prime.
I’m pitching punches, everything else is up to Roy,” he said. If I am running anywhere, I am running right at him.

The undercard is littered with a wide range of experience and novices, with YouTube star Jake Paul taking on former NBA star Nate Robinson just before the main event.
Wearing a Super Saiyan wig in order to honour a Dragon Ball Z character, Paul admitted he was hoping to move to 2-0 in his professional career with a ‘bloody’ performance.
I love the sport, I am made for this,” he said. It is an opportunity to prove people wrong.
I am ready to take the world by storm. Nate’s kids, if you are watching, don’t watch the fight, it’s going to be bad. It’s going to be bloody.
