    I could see the following selling, regardless of competitiveness or if the other side is willing: Holyfield, Lewis, ODLH, Mayweather, a retired MMA legend (I don't know who they are), and any heel of a celebrity like Rodman.

    Probably can make Holyfield, MMA legend, and maybe one other happen and by the last one he will have lost interest and start suffering injuries from training.

    The only reason there was a decision on the bout, was for the bookies.

    Tyson looked like a pathetic old geezer in that fight, the only reason some dumbasses think he looked great and are riding his aged pecker (as I predicted) was that Roy Jones looked so horrid. Seriously, Roy was a guy who was always is phenomenal shape, gifted beyond belief and what he is now is truly sad. He really let him self go. Fat paunchy gut, uncoordinated and all he was doing was throwing that lame southpaw cross foot jab thing .. what a joke of a fight and a way for these guys to bank millions that they don’t need..

    Until he looks what he is....washed up and shot.

    But as long as he looks 'good', in shape and people are curious then people will continue to pay.

    Did I read correctly that that sold over 1 million PPVs and made over $50,000,000 from the event?

    Good God, even 30 years removed from his prime Mike Tyson is still PPV gold :lol:

    No wonder Oldyfield is desperate to fight him again.

    I guarantee that Tyson-Jones will be the highest grossing boxing event of post-Covid 2020.

    I expect it to beat Joshua-Pulev and Canelo-Smith.

    Tyson v Holyfield will sell
    Tyson v Lewis could too

    Maybe after that he will give bowe a payday to help him out but knowing Bowe will not train and is sluring it will not sell well thus ending it.

    Foreman is too old I guess :lol:

    I think Tyson recently said he wants to keep fighting every couple of months

    but he’ll see that the demand for this is going to dwindle very quick after this first one

    there was no anticipation or uncertainty going into it like in a real fight


    people realize it was just a show and it was obviously a planned outcome with no danger of anyone getting knocked out brutally like Tyson is famous for doing

    demand for another and will be next to nothing
