Preview of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr.

Mike Tyson hasn’t competed in a boxing match since 2005. Back in the day, Tyson was known for putting his opponents away early and with amazing force. He had quick moves and strong hooks. His footwork and quick head movements made him even tougher to hit. Over half of Tysons first 60 fights ended in knockout fashion. He is a former WBC champion

Roy Jones Jr. is hard to hit and he’s hard to stop. Jones Jr. is the only man ever to not be hit in a full round of boxing. He is good at dodging, having quick feet, and a strong hook. He is a former middleweight and heavyweight champion.

The Picks To Make

Both of these legendary boxers could be the favorite, but it is hard to bet against Iron Mike, who has been an underdog just once in his boxing career. Plus he showed off some amazing training videos. Around 75% of the bettors for this match put their money on Tyson.

If you bet Jones Jr. to win, you should bet the win by decision, which is +300.  There is a decent chance that Jones Jr. can score the decision with some nice moves.

If you want to bet on more than just Tyson winning the match at -200, bet on him getting a knockout win. This will give you a better payout.

Finally, betting on the winner of the match and what round it will happen, can make for a big payday. Also, if you want to keep things simple, pick the over/under for total rounds. The odds for that is Over 7.5 rounds +155. Under 7.5 rounds -190.
