Former professional boxer Mike Tyson took his upcoming exhibition fight with boxing legend Roy Jones Jr. to a whole new level with a hilarious Thanksgiving jibe alongside his kids.


Despite the ongoing novel coronavirus pandemic, Americans have flooded various social media platforms to celebrate Thanksgiving Day with their family and friends.

And Mike Tyson took his own Thanksgiving celebrations to a whole new level as he enlisted the help of two of his children to take a hilarious swipe at Roy Jones Jr. — who he is going up against this weekend.

On paper, the fight between the two boxing legends is described as an exhibition match. However, both Tyson and Jones Jr. have promised to give viewers their money's worth.

Tyson is already making good on his promise with his hilarious Thanksgiving jibe, where he substitutes the traditional turkey with a cake of Jones' head while dining with his kids. Tyson takes a shot at his opponent as he unveils the cake saying:


"It's a turkey."


The 54-year-old retired boxer later slices off "Jones' ear" and jokes that it tastes much better than Evander Holyfield's ear — bringing to remembrance how he bit the ear of the latter in their 1997 bout.

The short clip ends with Tyson's kids feeding their pet dog what was left of their Thanksgiving "turkey." Tyson was not done, and he continued the trash-talking on Instagram.

Tyson is confident about his chances and got many people believing after releasing his "scary" workout video in June.


Tyson took another swipe at Jones with a picture of his pet dog eating Jones' head from a plate. Interestingly, the image was shared on his dog's Instagram page with a cheeky message in the caption.

In July, Tyson, who was nicknamed the "the baddest man on the planet," announced that he would be making a comeback to the ring in an exhibition match against Jones.


The eight-round exhibition match was billed for September 12 at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California. However, it was pushed back to November 28 to maximize the revenue from the fight.

Tyson was undoubtedly one of the most feared boxers in his prime, with 44 out of his 50 career victories coming by way of knockout. He last fought in 2005 and was defeated by Kevin McBride.


Meanwhile, Jones' last fight was in 2018, and he beat Scott Sigmon. Even though the odds seemed to be stacked against him, Tyson is confident about his chances and got many people believing after releasing his "scary" workout video in June.

However, the former heavyweight champion revealed his kids do not share in his optimism and urged him to scrap his comeback plans.

Tyson waved off his children's concerns, and the hugely-anticipated fight is going on as planned, with many eager to find out if the legendary Mike Tyson has still got it.
