Mike Tyson

54-year-old former heavyweight champion of the world "Iron" Mike Tyson is making a comeback on September 12th.

Two legendary boxers are set to clash at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California on September 12th. The bout will be available on pay-per-view and Triller, a multimedia platform. Triller will also be debuting a ten-part docuseries leading up to the event, per ESPN's Steve Kim.


Tyson's epic training videos have caused quite the stir on social media over the past few months, and his reputation as the youngest heavyweight champion ever and one of the greatest boxers in history has fueled the public's interest in a comeback. However, his opponent is an extremely accomplished boxer too. Roy Jones Jr. was once thought to be untouchable as he won titles in four different weight classes, an unprecedented feat. Both of these incredible athletes are over the age of 50, but they are confident that their extensive experience in the ring will prevent them from suffering any serious injuries. It is expected that the fighters will not wear head gear, but will be using 12-ounce gloves.

For the pop-culture fans, an exciting undercard has already been announced as well. YouTube star Jake Paul is set to fight former NBA player and three-time slam dunk champion Nate Robinson in a preliminary exhibition fight, per The Athletic. Paul has a bit of amateur boxing experience having faced two opponents, who were fellow YouTube personalities. Robinson has never boxed in an official setting. It certainly won't be the display of technique that Tyson and Jones Jr. are sure to provide, but the bout is sure to be entertaining.

The Czech Republic's Lukas Krpalek put himself in the history books Friday when he became only the third judoka to ever win Olympic gold medals in two different weight categories claiming the men's +100 kg division in Tokyo. Krpalek, who won the under 100 kg class at the 2016 Rio Olympics, hit a throw with time running out in the finals against Georgia's Guram Tushishvili and went into a hold down to pin Tushishvili for the full point to earn his second Olympic championship. Meanwhile, two-time defending +100 kg champion Teddy Riner of France, considered by some the greatest judoka in history, was upset in the quarter finals and had to settle for the bronze.

On the women's side, Akira Sone helped Japan break its own record for most judo gold medals in a single Olympics when she claimed her country's ninth gold of the tournament capturing the women's +78 kg division against Cuba's Idalys Ortiz.
