Tonight, on It's Real Talk Radio, we will be reviewing the Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones event that just took place on Saturday, November 28th, 2020. This was our first tine getting to see Iron Mike in the ring since his disappointing defeat against Kevin McBride on June 11, 2005, making this Tyson's first fight in 15 years!
The night started out with 2 very entertaining fights in Badou Jack vs Blake McKernan and Jamaine Ortiz vs Sulaiman Segawa. The third fight would turn out to have the most controversy and stole the show. Nate Robinson vs Jake Paul ended with some unexpected fireworks as Nate Robinson was knocked down 3 times, with the third knockdown putting him to sleep. Nobody saw this comin as the 3 time NBA Slam Dunk Champion and 1 time NBA Finals appearance NBA veteran was knocked unconscious by YouTube star Jake Paul! Of course the commentary from Hip Hop legend Snoop made the knockout that much more explosive.
The night concluded with Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones facing off in an exhibition fight. Most boxing historians were entertained just knowing 2 of the greatest to ever do it stepped into the squared circle but there was also a lot of criticism from customers of the PPV because there was a lot of clinching, usually initiated by Roy Jones, who before the fight, admitted his fear of Iron Mike's power. The fight ended in a draw but most boxing fans feel like Mike Tyson won because he was the aggressor and threw more punches.
We will also be discussing the drama and violence in Hip Hop. Rappers are in all types of drama and beefing and being shot and killed at an alarming rate, and we must ask ourselves “Why is this happening?” Why does the music industry promote genocide in Hip Hop, which mostly affects Black people? From Nipsey Hussle to King Von, the killing of rappers is alarming! Just recently, Boosie Badazz was shot in Dallas, TX! The violence is out of control and this must be addressed!
