The legend of professional boxing, Mike Tyson, who is actively preparing for his return to the ring, announced that he wants to see his opponent as the best fighter in the world, regardless of weight category.
“UFCs are more popular than boxing, right?” They have a higher rating. But UFC fighters will never earn more than top-notch boxers, ”Iron Mike said in an interview with EssentiallySports. “To earn one hundred million dollars, Conor McGregor had to fight with Floyd Mayweather. John Jones must fight me to get a super-fee ”
The response of the current UFC light heavyweight champion was not long in coming.
“I’m listening, Mike Tyson,” Jones tweeted.
“I will go against you in the ring if you promise me after that to give a real fight in the octagon. And since I respect you very much, I promise you not to break anything, ”he added on Instagram.
Recall that at the end of last month, a public conflict broke out between John Jones and the UFC, which was caused by unsuccessful light heavyweight negotiations about a duel against Francis Ngannu. The UFC president called Jones ’financial demands“ absurd, ”and the UFC champion announced Dan White as a liar and renounced his title.
