Mike Tyson will fight Roy Jones Jr. in an eight-round exhibition on Sept. 12 at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.

ESPN reports that the fight will be available on pay-per-view.

For Tyson, this will be his first match in over 15 years. Jones Jr.'s last fight was in 2018 when he defeated Scott Sigmon in ten rounds by decision.

At 54 and 51 years old respectively, Tyson and Jones Jr. don't seem like they'd be of the age where they'd be happy to step back into the ring. But, it seems that it's going to happen and both men are excited for it.

Boxing fans are likely excited, too, as both men were the best of the best in their hay day.
