Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. odds have shifted since they first hit the boxing betting board back in July, with Iron Mike now the favorite in the eight-round exhibition match set for November 28.

The bout between former undisputed heavyweight world champion Tyson and former four-division world champ, Roy Jones Jr. will take place at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

Boxing fans will get to see two of the sport's most colorful legends in action once again as the former undisputed heavyweight world champion Mike Tyson takes on former four-division world champ, Roy Jones Jr, widely considered one of the best pound-for-pound boxers of all time.

Here is everything you need to know, including Tyson vs. Jones Jr fight odds, for the upcoming event.

Who is the Favorite to Win Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr.?

Mike Tyson's fight odds opened at -110 with the bout originally a pick'em but Tyson is now the betting favorite at -200 while Jones Jr. comes back at +150. 

The 54-year-old Tyson, once the youngest heavyweight champion of all time, has a career record of 50-6 with 44 knockouts.

Although he successfully defended his titles nine times, Iron Mike's career was derailed by time in prison and multiple controversies - in and out of the ring.  Tyson's last fight came 15 years ago against Kevin McBride when he quit before the seventh round.

Jones (66-9, 47 KOs) previously held titles at middleweight, super middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight. The 51-year-old had a professional fight as recently as February 2018, when he toppled Scott Sigmon via decision.

Since this will be an exhibition bout there are modified rules for the fight. The two power-punchers will not be going for KOs with the referee under specific instructions to stop the match if it goes beyond "the boundaries of a competitive boxing exhibition.". They will also wear larger gloves although head guards will not be necessary.
