After all the entertainment of Joe Joyce’s upset of Daniel Dubois, we had a remarkable spectacle on our hands in so many ways tonight as two retired American boxing legends went head to head on their returns to the ring in an entertaining eight-round exhibition contest.
‘Iron’ Mike’s last professional fight came 15 years ago, when he was surprisingly beaten by Irishman Kevin McBride - a defeat which saw the former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world hang up his gloves.
Meanwhile Jones Jr, who at 51 is three years younger than his opponent, was a world champion at four weights and only retired in 2018 after a 75-fight career.
Neither man disgraced themselves during a highly watchable battle that went the distance before being declared a draw by a trio of former WBC champions in Christy Martin, Vinny Pazienza and Chad Dawson.
YouTube star Jake Paul decimated former NBA player Nate Robinson in the chief support act of the night, while former two-weight world champion Badou Jack dominated Blake McKernan.
There were also impressive wins for Jamaine Ortiz and Edward Vazquez on Saturday’s undercard.
