Thanksgiving weekend brings a matchup of boxing legends at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, California this Saturday. Former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson will face former pound-for-pound and multi-weight class champion Roy Jones, Jr. in an eight-round exhibition fight for the recently created WBC Frontline belt.

DraftKings is partnering with the event to become the “Official Sports Betting Partner” and regulators have approved them setting odds for the card. Tyson is listed as a -225 favorite while Jones is a +175 underdog at DraftKings Sportsbook. In three-way moneyline odds, Tyson is -200, Jones is +185, and a draw is +800.

DraftKings is also offering a pair of free-to-play pools for the card. They each involve making a series of predictions and the winner claims a portion of $1,000. There will be payouts down to a $1 for those between 3021st and 8520th in the pool.

The first pool is strictly for the main event between Tyson and Jones. The questions include who will win, winning method, if the fight will go the distance, if there will be a knockdown in the first four rounds, who will land the first punch, whether it will go more rounds than Jake Paul vs. Nate Robinson, if we’ll see showboating, and if Tyson will win by stoppage.

The second pool covers the four-fight main card. You are asked to pick winners for Tyson vs. Jones, Robinson vs. Paul, and Badou Jack vs. Blake McKernan. Additionally, you’re asked for winning method on all three fights and total rounds for the first two. Finally, with Lil Wayne performing at the event, you have to predict what song he will perform first.
