Buster Douglas, who shocked the world against Mike Tyson in 1990, predicts the legendary fight with Roy Jones Jr.

It is still considered the greatest breakthrough in the history of the sport.

Douglas, who lost the title to Evander Holyfield seven months later, is looking forward to his old opponent preparing for a comeback.

Tyson, 54, will face four former weightlifting world champions Jones Jr. on November 28 in the much-anticipated exhibition competition.

Although Douglas Tyson himself was ousted in 1990, he believes the infamous legend will have no problems in five weeks – if there is actually a war.

Speaking DJ VladDouglas revealed that Jones Jr. had agreed to showdown – especially after withdrawing from a match against him in the 90s.

In the failed confrontation, Douglas said: “He backed down and his father told him not to do that.

“Fighting me may not be in his best interest because he bites so much.”

But Tyson continued on to the upcoming president: “Because I ‘you, he’s waiting for a minute for what I do not see or what you know, because even it (all) was surprised to announce that you can beat someone to look forward to fighting them.

“It was really confusing because I know what he and I went through, but he turned around and he was going to fight Mike, so I was like‘ Wow ’. He must see something or know something.

“But he really doubts it now, and I’ll see if he discusses it or not. So I don’t think this is going to happen. ”

While picking a winner from Tyson and Jones Jr., Douglas doesn’t have high hopes for a second.

He added: “(Roy) I think he has a chance, but it’s a small opportunity.

“Slimmer than Buster Douglas.”

Gervonda Davis says Mike Tyson is still developing anger during the Roy Jones junior fight and is looking to avoid it.
