Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr in superb shape as pair weigh in ahead of bout

Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr showed off their impressive physiques as they prepare to fight in the ring.

It will be the first time since 2005 that Tyson has entered the ring, 15 years ago – where he was beaten by Kevin McBride in seven rounds.

Iron Mike will take on Jones Jr on November 28 in Los Angeles with eight two-minute rounds scheduled.

Tyson has been called the best heavyweight boxer of all-time after some ferocious knockouts in his prime.

In total, he has knocked out 44 fighters during his legendary career at this weekend he will try to add to that number – despite the rules saying otherwise.

And the two fighters have had their weigh in, looking impressive for their ages.

Tyson, 54, weighed in at 220.4 pounds whereas 51-year-old Jones Jr. was 210.

Knockouts have been ruled out by the California State Athletic Commission, with the match billed as an exhibition.

But with Tyson in the ring, enforcing that could prove difficult with his coach Rafael Cordeiro has admitted Iron Mike will be going in to fight.

“Two legends in the ring, they both are going for the finish,” Cordeiro said in an interview with MMA Fighting.

“The fight has three judges [sic] and a referee, so it’s a real fight and must have a winner.

"It’s no longer an exhibition, someone has to win. We’ll try to win from start to finish.

"Mike is not going there for an exhibition, he’s going there to fight.

“We’re on a sparring week in the gym and that’s it. That’s something he really enjoys.

"No one spars a full month for an exhibition. It will be a real fight.

"We respect Roy because Roy is coming for a real fight, and that’s what makes this match so different.

"They are both coming for a real fight.”
