Tyson Vs. Jones’s predictions
Brian Campbell: Tyson will likely have a punch knockout power until one dies, making the “Iron Mike” still a very dangerous challenge for anyone in the opening round. But Jones, who should be taking advantage of the legal momentum, is the fresher fighter of the two, who remained active as a professional during 2018, after closing his career with a 12-1 run. Jones has also worked in cruiserweight in recent years, which means Tyson doesn’t worry as much about the disadvantages of size against the already small heavyweights. Provided Jones can survive the initial hurricane, expect Tyson to be selected with ease as the fight progresses.
Brent Brookhouse: Predicting a fight like this is a guessing exercise. What does 54-year-old Tyson have at the moment? Jones has the edge of being a “fresher” from his pro career, but his chin has been able to take pure power shots from a hard puncture, and Tyson is still a power puncher if nothing else. But no one seems to fully understand the rules of the fight. The commission says it’s a tough fight and they’ll prevent anything beyond that, but promoters and fighters say it’s 100% a “real fight.” If they can’t really try to hurt each other, as stated by the commission, it will be a fairly easy fight for Jones, as he can use his speed and just pop simple jumps and combinations and fight his speed. Can run. If they can fly their punch at full speed and Jones plays around the rope as is his trend, Tyson catches it clean and finishes it. There are a lot of unfamiliar ways to make meaningful predictions of any kind here, but the edge seems to be going on Saturday with Jones.
