Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr odds: Who is the favourite? What are the rules? Where is the money going? When is it?

Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr odds: Who is the favourite? What are the rules? Where is the money going? When is it?

The pair are a combined 105 years old…

Two boxing icons step into the squared circle this weekend, with Iron Mike Tyson (54) taking on old rival Roy Jones Jr (51).

But what are the rules for the hybrid event? Who is the favourite? Who have punters been backing? When is it and how can you watch it? 

Oddschecker has taken a look at the showcase exhibition matchup. 

Who is the favourite?  

At the time of writing, Mike Tyson is the bookies' favourite heading into the fight this Saturday.  
Ahead of the scrap, 4/9 is the best price being offered by VBet.
On the other side of the ring, Roy Jones Jr is a sizable 15/8 underdog, although even that price hasn’t been able to tempt punters. 

What are the rules?  

There will be no knockouts permitted throughout the bout, which will consist of eight rounds of two minutes in duration.  
Also, there will be no ringside judges in attendance on the evening, meaning no winner will be announced from the scorecards.  
The bet will be settled based on the result announced by the WBC after the fight. 

Where is the money going?  

As expected, Tyson has been popular with punters, despite coming into the bout three years older than his counterpart.  
Over the last week, 58% of all bets on the fight have backed Iron Mike to emerge victorious, with just 31% of all wagers backing Captain Hook.  
Interestingly, a rather high 11% of all bets are backing the draw at 9/1 best price in the matchup, a common result in exhibition/charity bouts.

When is it?  

You don’t have to wait long, with the fight taking place on Saturday 28th November, from Los Angeles.  
The viewing schedule indicates the event will starts at 1am (BST) on BT Sports Box Office.
