Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. Reportedly Draws HUGE PPV Buyrate

Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. has reportedly turned in a massive pay-per-view buyrate.

Tyson and Jones went one-on-one in an exhibition match on November 28. The bout took place inside the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The two went all eight rounds in what was widely considered to be an entertaining affair. No winner was declared.

Dan Rafael took to his Twitter account to report that the Tyson vs. Jones PPV was able to bring in around 1.2 million buys.

“I was told today by sources well over 1 million in the U.S. — probably in the 1.2 neighborhood, which would include traditional linear PPV, the FITE TV digital app, and DirecTV/Dish Network. A shockingly high number that will make the biggest selling #boxing PPV in quite a while.”

Tyson made it clear after the fight that he’s willing to stay active in terms of exhibitions. Jones appeared to only be interested in returning to the ring again if it’s against former UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva.

Tyson already has a couple of willing participants for his next outing. Evander Holyfield and Buster Douglas have stepped up to issue the challenge to Tyson. “Iron” Mike has said that he feels Holyfield’s team has been holding up their potential third clash.
