Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr are set to make a sensational return to the ring as they face off exclusively live on BT Sport Box Office on Saturday 28 November.

With just under a month to go until the legendary duo step between the ropes, they met the press - and you can watch all the action right here.

Just open the video player above to see what both men had to say as they look ahead to what promises to be a unique event.

The exhibition match, presented by Triller, will take place in LA with YouTuber Jake Paul and former NBA star Nate Robinson, Badou Jack and Blake McKernon, Viddal Riley and Rashad Coulter who will fight in the build-up to Tyson vs Jones Jr.

The fight is the first event of a series of live sporting events produced under Tyson’s Legends Only League, a next-generation sports venture that provides full support and infrastructure to the world’s greatest athletes.

Widely considered one the greatest of all time, ‘Iron Mike’ – who earned a reputation as the ‘Baddest Man on the Planet’ – makes his return against ex-four-weight world champion Roy Jones Jr.

Tyson became the youngest-ever world heavyweight champion in 1986, aged just 20, and presided over a fearsome reign knocking out 44 of his 58 opponents.

The 54-year-old last fought professionally against Irishman Kevin McBride in 2005 so the sense of excitement around his return is palpable.

He takes on fellow American Jones, 51, who claimed world titles at middleweight, super-middleweight, light-heavyweight and heavyweight during his career.

And if that isn’t enough, Tyson vs Jones Jr rounds off an incredible night of heavyweight boxing on BT Sport as it will follow the huge domestic clash between Daniel Dubois and Joe Joyce.
