    Former heavyweight boxing world champion Mike Tyson has announced a sensational comeback fight against Roy Jones Jr.

    The 54-year-old has agreed to take on former pound-for-pound great Roy Jones Jr, 51, in Los Angeles on Saturday, September 12.

    Hall of Famer Jones Jr confirmed the bout had been agreed on his Instagram page.He wrote: "I am happy that this fight between me and Mike Tyson will happen! I was always ready and will be ready this time as well. I want all my fans to support me and tune in. Its gonna be epic."



    Jones also posted a video of the pair signing their contracts for the fight on his social media.

    Mike just call it a day brother, Jones is doing it for the cash, which he needs, you don't. One my heroes from the 80's, I don't want something bad to happen.

    What a specimen he was, just loved him in the 80's. We used to wait up to watch his fights. Love the guy.

    The scary part about Mike is that feminine voice you hear before the beat down.
