At long last, Mike Tyson returned to the boxing ring for a highly anticipated bout against former champ Roy Jones Jr. Though the boxers went the length and fought all eight rounds — a special format crafted specifically for this exhibition bout — when the dust settled, the judges decided to make the match a draw. Neither Tyson, who's reportedly set to win $10 million from the event, nor Jones came out on top.
Suffice to say, the internet quickly lit ablaze as most chose Tyson as the clear winner. Those who didn't choose a winner for their own sake, expressed displeasure shelling out $50 for the pay-per-view without getting a satisfactory result. Others couldn't help but avoid chatting about the main event in the slightest and instead, continued to talk about Jake Paul's knockout of former NBA star Nate Robinson.
