Iron Mike and Captain Hook are ready to step into the ring one more time for a special exhibition fight taking place in California tonight. It's set to be the PPV event of the year, so don't miss a second of the action. Read on as we explain how to watch a Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr live stream wherever you are right now - plus tell you essential information about the Tyson vs Jones fight including its time and price.
Back in the day, there wasn't a heavyweight on earth who could go toe-to-toe with Mike Tyson. Known as the 'Baddest Man on the Planet' in the late-80s and early-90s when he was at the peak of his powers, Tyson knocked out 44 of the 58 opponents he faced and was crowned the youngest-ever world heavyweight champion in 1986, aged just 20 - a feat that still hasn't been matched to this day.
The Tyson vs Jones showdown is tonight (Saturday, November 28) at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California. The undercard featuring Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson and others is set to get under way in the US at 9pm ET / 6pm PT and will be shown on FITE (opens in new tab)TV (that's 1am GMT in the UK and 1pm AEDT on Sunday in Australia). Ring walks for the main event expected around 11pm ET / 8pm PT (3am GMT/3pm AEDT). Access the same coverage you would at home from wherever you are with a reliable VPN (opens in new tab) in your corner.
He faces arguably his toughest opponent to date in former four-weight world champ Roy Jones Jr, though, and it'll be interesting to see which version of Iron Mike we see in the ring shortly. Can the 54-year-old Tyson roll back the years and show the same kind of ruthless streak he was once famed for? Or will he more closely resemble the figure who lost his last competitive fight 15 years ago in limp fashion to Irishman Kevin McBride?
Like Tyson, 51-year-old Roy Jones Jr is fighting Father Time as much he is the man opposite him the ring tonight. Yet he's arguably the favorite and is widely regarded as the best all-round boxer of his generation - and maybe of all-time. After Michael Spinks, he's only the second light heavyweight champion to win the heavyweight division proper as part of a dynamic career that saw him win belts at Middleweight, Super Middleweight, and Cruiserweight en route to an impressive 66-9 record.
With a fantastic main card that also features Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson, this looks set to be an exciting night of boxing action and one of the most entertaining sports events of the year.

Tyson vs Jones fight rules: is there a no knockout clause and will there be a winner?
Dubbed 'Frontline Battle', tonight's fight is the first event of a series produced by Mike Tyson's new Legends Only League and will be for the newly created WBC Frontline Battle Belt. Both fighters have agreed to eight 2-minute rounds and no headgear for the exhibition fight.
While sanctioning board the California State Athletic Commission is enforcing a "no knockouts" rule, both fighters have nevertheless indicated it's not a directive they'll be observing once they step into the ring.
However, as Tyson vs Jones is an exhibition fight, it won't be officially scored like a competitive fight, according to a number of insiders.
Instead, the WBC will be having celebrity guest judges score the fight remotely, but the situation appears to be that those scores will be purely for entertainment purposes and that a winner won't be announced.
