Tyson wants to fight again after Jones throwback ends in draw

mike Tyson

said he would “absolutely” fight again after his blockbuster exhibition with Roy Jones Jr was ruled a draw in Los Angeles.

Tyson, 54, and Jones, 51, turned back the clock at Staples Center, where the two legends stepped into the ring over eight two-minute rounds behind closed doors amid the coronavirus on Saturday.

Former four-weight champion Jones fought as recently as two years ago, while ex-heavyweight king Tyson’s last professional bout was in 2005.

Tyson looked the better fighter despite no knockout blow, working over the body as the heavy-breathing Jones often appeared exhausted.

“I’m happy with a draw,” Tyson said afterwards. “I thought I won but I’m happy because we entertained the fans.

“I’m used to doing it for three minutes. I’m just happy I got this under my belt and I’m going to continue to do more.

“Absolutely I would do this again. I’m just happy I could go eight rounds. Knockouts mean nothing, you have to be able to go the distance.

“Hell no I ain’t satisfied with a draw. I wear drawers I don’t do draws,” Jones said.

“The dude is so strong man. Whether he hits you with his head, his body shots it don’t matter everything hurts. For me I thought I did enough boxing on the outside but I’m cool with a draw. We might have to try and do it again.

“I need to talk to my family, see what they think. Thank you to everybody who sent us out the right way. If everything goes the right way and my family say it’s alright, who knows.”

When asked if the body shots took a toll Jones said: “They definitely hurt the body shots are what make you exhausted.”

A Federal High Court in Abuja has dismissed the alleged certificate forgery suit brought against Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and one of its members, Edobor Williams.

Justice Ahmed Mohammed, in a judgment a moment ago, held that the plaintiffs failed to prove their claim that Obaseki forged his academic certificates that he submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) before the last governorship election in the state.

The judge found as lazy, the attitude of the plaintiffs, who did no make any efforts to cross-check from the University of Ibadan (UI) and the West African Examination Council (WAEC), the two institutions that issued the certificates they claimed Obaseki forged.

Details shortly.
