Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr: UK start time, date, live stream, undercard and rules for this weekend’s boxing fight

BOXING legends Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr will face off in a spectacular exhibition fight in LA.

The 54-year-old Tyson will face Jones, 51, in a long-awaited bout, with the Baddest Man on the Planet dropping an incredible SIX stone to get in shape for the clash.

The California State Commission say the exhibition will be fought under the rules that both men will not look for the knock-out and will instead "exhibit" their skills, but both fighters have come out and said the contrary.

What are the rules of the fight?

The fight will be contested over eight, two-minute rounds.

No headguards will be worn but the fighters will be wearing larger 12-ounce gloves.

Technically the fight can only be stopped if there is a knock-out, but California State Athletic Commission executive director Andy Forster said he will stop it as soon as a cut appears.

Forster said: "Tyson and Jones Jr. won’t be wearing headgear for the fight. They’ll be lacing up 12-ounce gloves and there won’t be any judges present at the fight to score the action. So, technically, there won’t be a winner unless a knockout somehow occurs, or either fighter is deemed unfit to continue.

"They can move around and make some money, but I told them if you get cut, it’s over."

What have they said?

Mike Tyson: "We're throwing punches at each other. This is going to be my definition of fun … broken eye sockets, broken jaw, broken rib. That's fun to me."

Roy Jones Jr: "He's still Mike Tyson, he's still one of the strongest, most explosive people who ever touched a boxing ring. If anything, I made a mistake going in with him.

"He's the bigger guy, he's the explosive guy. He's going to have all the first-round fireworks, not me.

"I do have first-round fireworks, but he's known for more first-round fireworks than anybody to ever touch boxing, other than maybe George Foreman."
