Roy Jones Jr

Motivated Mike Tyson loses 45kg for comeback fight against Roy Jones Jr

The 54-year-old former heavyweight boxing champion stripped off his shirt on the national TV show Good Morning America to prove his point on Tuesday.

"This is where it’s at, man! This is where it's at. This is where it’s at, brother!" Tyson told host TJ Holmes, as he revealed his chest.

Tyson takes on Jones in an exhibition fight in California on Sunday (NZT) and said he didn't lack motivation to get back into fighting shape with plenty of encouragement from home.

Putin gives Roy Jones Jr. Russian citizenship

A decree published on the Kremlin's website in the Russian president's name said the American, a four-weight champion once regarded by many as the world's best boxer, had been given Russian nationality.

Jones asked Putin for citizenship in August over a cup of tea when they met in Crimea — the territory annexed by Russia last year — saying it would make doing business in Russia easier.
