That was my take on the fights, too. I watched replays of Tyson-jones and Paul-Robinson for free on YouTube. Tyson did surprisingly well for a 54 year old guy who retired from boxing in 2006. Jones is 51, but retired only a couple of years ago. I thought Tyson hit harder and landed far more real punches. Jones just danced a little and then clinched all night. In my opinion, Tyson won the fight decisively.Found a stream and found it to be hilarious. Nate Robinson getting knocked out cold was easily the highlight of the night. Tyson actually looked in pretty good shape and Jones just held on for the majority of the 8 rounds and prevented a fun fight and probably made a good decision for his well being.
My favorite part was when Sugar Ray basically threatened to beat down Marlo in the ringTotally concur with your assessment. The two other commentators were Sugar Ray Leonard - u remember him, right? and Israel Adesanya (UFC champ). Not here nor there but the play by play guy (Marlo) is highly annoying and sounds like a WWE clown.
I didn't watch the fight, but I trust the consensus that Tyson won. But, I wouldn't be surprised, since it was an "exhibition", that the two sides agreed that it would be a draw regardless of the fight itself.
yeah, unless someone got nate robinson'ed, it was going to be a draw.I didn't watch the fight, but I trust the consensus that Tyson won. But, I wouldn't be surprised, since it was an "exhibition", that the two sides agreed that it would be a draw regardless of the fight itself.
Oh my god. Can we memorialize this post somehow. Legendaryyeah, unless someone got nate robinson'ed, it was going to be a draw.
and if someone went down, they were basically giving them all the time in the world to get up and have it ended on their feet.
i get that its not for the penny-pinching tree-hugging crowd, but i doubt boxing is their cup of tea to begin with.
if this is what boxing matches can become once covid ends...a packed house with a SuperBowl Halftime like concert in between matches, then things will get real fun.
Snoop will single handedly save MNF if given the chance too btw.
