MIKE TYSON: Return Bout Will Feature Hip-Hop Lineup

TeeRoy's 2 Cents:

  • $50 for a concert and a Tyson fight isn't a bad deal.
  • The fight is scheduled for eight rounds. But if you've seen the shape that Tyson is in these days, it may not go that long.
  • There had been rumors that Eminem might be a surprise performer, but we'll have to wait and see.

Mike Tyson's anticipated return to the ring later this month will also pack a hip-hop punch.

Iron Mike's November 28th fight against Roy Jones Jr., which will be his first bout in 15 years, will boast a musical lineup featuringLil Wayne,French Montana,DaBaby,Wiz Khalifa andYG. The four-hour event can be streamed live at TysonTriller.com for $49.99.

Lil Wayne said in a statement, "This event is going to go down in history, no doubt. I'm grateful to be a part of it and share the arena with two living legends. I'm stoked to perform and give the fans something they can rock to.” (Billboard)
