Tonight’s Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr showdown takes place at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California. The night’s undercard is set to get under way in the US at 9pm ET / 6pm PT and will be shown on FITE TV (that’s 1am GMT in the UK and 1pm AEDT on Sunday in Australia). Ring walks for the main event expected around 11pm ET / 8pm PT (3am GMT/3pm AEDT) , and you can access the same coverage you would at home from wherever you are with a reliable VPN in your corner.
Often called the ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ during his ’80’s heyday, Tyson will be making his return against ex-four-weight world champion Roy Jones Jr. While Jones is arguably the more dynamic fighter and likely to possess a conditioning edge, having only retired from professional fighting a few years back, Iron Mike is always going to possess the most ferocious one-punch knockout power the sport has ever seen.
Knocking out 44 of his 58 opponents, Tyson was famed for his viciousness and knockout power and became the youngest-ever world heavyweight champ back in 1986, at the tender age of just 20. Now 54, it’s been 15 years since Iron Mike’s last professional fight which ended in a 7th round TKO defeat at the hands of Irish boxer Kevin McBride.
Roy Jones Jr, for his part, is 51-year-old and was still fighting as recently as 2018, albeit against very limited opposition towards the end of his career. Widely considered the best all-round boxer of his generation, Jones is only the second light heavyweight champion to win a heavyweight title after Michael Spinks.
As well as holding both those titles, he also triumphed at Middleweight, Super middleweight, and Cruiserweight in a career that spanned 75 fights and boasted 66 victories with just 9 losses.
This looks like being an unmissable night’s worth of action for boxing fans. Below you’ll find all the options for watching tonight’s fight. No matter where you are in the world you can watch a Tyson vs Jones live stream with the help of our guide.

Tyson vs Jones fight rules: is there a no knockout clause and will there be a winner?
Titled “Frontline Battle,” the fight is the first event of a series produced by Mike Tyson’s new Legends Only League and will be for the newly created WBC Frontline Battle Belt. Both fighters have agreed to eight 2-minute rounds and no headgear for the exhibition fight.
While sanctioning board the California State Athletic Commission is enforcing a “no knockouts” rule, both fighters have nevertheless indicated it’s not a directive they’ll be observing once they step into the ring.
Also, as Tyson vs Jones is an exhibition fight, it won’t be officially scored like a competitive fight. Instead, the WBC will be having celebrity guest judges score the fight remotely, but the situation appears to be that those scores will be purely for entertainment purposes and that a winner won’t be announced.
