When it was announced that Mike Tyson would be making his return to the ring, the sporting world pricked up its ears and took notice. When it was eventually decided that he would turn down the list of potential freakshow fight options and instead face fellow boxing legend Roy Jones Jr, that interest became legitimate intrigue.
Now, as we head toward fight night, more details are emerging about the fight that are taking the shine off a matchup that continues to capture the imagination.
The event is all set to be aired via pay-per-view, with fans in the U.S. being asked to stump up $49.99 to watch the event live via a host of PPV providers, but fans preparing to lay down their money for the matchup may end up being disappointed when they realize what they've paid for.
For starters, it's not a legitimate boxing match. It's an exhibition. And, as a result, there are a LOT of significant differences between this bout and the other fights people are used to enjoying on their televisions on a Saturday night.
The fight will be sanctioned by the California State Athletic Commission, but they will do so as an exhibition bout, rather than a bonafide professional fight.
