Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr conduct hilarious interview after fight ends in draw

Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr conducted a hilarious joint-interview after their fight ended in a draw.

The former heavyweight champion returned to the ring after 15 years to take on one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in Los Angeles.

Battling it out over eight two-minute rounds, the judges could not separate them.

Iron Mike received a 79-73 with Christy Martin as Jones Jr received a 80-76 from Vinny Pazienza – but Chad Dawson’s 76-76 draw meant the fighters could not be separated.

Footage of their post-fight interview, though, shows that there was no hard feelings between the Americans when the bell was rung.

In the clip, Tyson was asked by the interviewer about how his stamina held up during the bout.

And he replied: “Well, I’m used to doing it for three minutes and sometimes that two minutes felt like three!

“I’m really happy I got this under my belt and I’ll continue to do more.”

And this brought out a smile from Jones Jr, who still has his boxing gloves on after the draw.

Tyson took some hits from his opponent in the seventh round – and the fighter, who won his first belt at 20 years old in 1986, revealed how he responded.

“I went to Plan B, I hit him back.,” Iron Mike added.

“We’ve got to do this again.”

With Tyson drawing another laugh from Jones Jr, the questions turned to his opponent who was asked if he was concerned about getting hurt.

But the 54-year-old answered first, jumping on the mic and saying: “I was afraid I might get hurt!”

This left Jones Jr in stitches as the interviewer played along.

“I stopped fighting for 20 years, he only stopped for three years,” Tyson added.

“Why doesn’t anyone care about my a**?

“They’re all worried about him. I’m not a giant, I’m a beginner.”

Tyson and Jones Jr also used the interview to suggest that there could be a rematch between the pair after the draw.
