Roy Jones Jr, 51, shows off incredible hand speed and reveals opponent Mike Tyson 'inspires' him ahead of comeback fight

ROY JONES JR showed off his incredible hand speed after revealing Mike Tyson 'inspires' him ahead of their fight.

The American faces his fellow legend in an eight-round exhibition bout next weekend.


Tyson, 54, will fight for the first time in 15 years and has dramatically transformed his body ahead of the remarkable comeback.

Iron Mike's viral training videos on the pads has been fuelling Jones, 51, with motivation ahead of their pay-per-view spectacle.

He said: “I think he looks awesome. He looks very good.

“To see Mike be able to hit the pads and the body bag the way he’s doing it, it’s phenomenal. It’s crazy. But we’re freaks.

"That’s why this is such a big thing. We’re two of the most explosive guys to ever touch a boxing ring.

"At 54, I want to watch him beat the mitts and bag more than any guy right now because it’s so exciting.

"He inspires me by how hard he’s preparing to get back in the ring.”

Jones gave fans a glimpse into his training camp ahead of his return to the ring.

Trainer Tom Yankello uploaded footage on Instagram which showed the former four-division champion firing off quick combinations.

And Jones also made use of his quick feet pivoting in between punches.

He only retired two years ago having won four straight in the US, albeit against unfamiliar opposition.

Tyson, on the other hand, has not laced up the gloves since retiring in 2005 off the back of two dismal defeats.
