Mike Tyson, Roy Jones Jr. go through weigh-in, stare down a day before exhibition fight [VIDEO]

Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. will meet on Saturday in a heavyweight exhibition fight. On Friday, they weighed in and we’ve got the results and video.

Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. square off on Saturday in an exhibition fight, and Friday afternoon brought us the official weigh-in. Tyson weighed in at 220 pounds, while Jones weighed in at 210 points.

Tyson is actually relatively close to what he weighed for fights in his prime. He’s obviously built a little differently now than he was in his hey-day, but it’s notable that he is not overweight, relatively speaking.

Jones is heavier than he was during his boxing career. At his peak, he fought in the light heavyweight division and weighed in the 165-178 range. When Jones stepped up to heavyweight to face John Ruiz, he weighed in at 193 pounds. Speed was a key to his game, so it will be interesting to see how the weight gain impacts him.

After the two fighters weighed in, we got the customary stare-down as well. Check out video below of all three events.
