Who takes this bout in 2003?
Roy Jones Jr had just climbed all the way up to Heavyweight making history, capturing the WBA Heavyweight title from John Ruiz in a bout he used his skills and speed to clearly outpoint The Quiteman to a wide UD.
Mike Tyson was still considered an exciting, dangerous fighter coming off a 1st round KO over Clifford Etienne in a bout that showed the former undisputed champion could still throw vicious shots, needing only 49 seconds to finish the fight.
Roy Jones Jr relied on his speed, reflex and ring smarts to get by naturally much bigger men at the time, while Mike Tyson considered shot and a 3 round fighter at best at the time relying on his one punch power and reputation to get by fighters at that point of his career.
Would Roy Jones Jr be able to survive the early onslaught before 'Iron' Mike gassed out to use his skills, speed and ability to outbox & frustrate the former shell of Tyson or even force the fight to be stopped later on. Or would Mike Tyson only need a short amount of time to prove even at that point of his career he was simply too big, too strong, too powerful and too aggressive for the much smaller Jones to force an early night?
This was a big possibly at the time and as much as I didn't want to see it as both are one of my all time favourites, there was another part of me that sure has hell was curious!
Who you guys got??
