The head of the World of Boxing promotion company Andrei Ryabinsky spoke about his expectations from the upcoming exhibition fight between Roy Jones and Mike Tyson, which will take place on November 28th.
“In my opinion, these are very tough guys, the best boxers in the world who will forever remain not just in the history of boxing, but in the whole history. And they organize this fight for attention and fundraising in order to earn something. But this is not the story of some bloody confrontation, everyone should understand.
I will definitely watch this fight, but we all understand that this is an exhibition fight. For sure there will be an element of charity. But to real battles and sports, when championship claims, ratings are determined … It’s not quite the same. But it’s still interesting, “Ryabinsky said.
