SJ - November 27, 2020

Mike Tyson prepared for his exhibition fight on Saturday night against Roy Jones Jr. by celebrating Thanksgiving with two of his kids.  The 54-year-old served up a turkey, which was actually a cake of his 52-year-old opponent's head.

Tyson in true Mike Tyson fashion ate the ear off of the cake.  He jokes in the video that Jones' ear tasted better than Evander Holyfield's ear.

From NY Post:

The former heavyweight champ even slices off and eats the “ear” of the cake, in reference to the 1997 bout in which he chomped the ear of opponent Evander Holyfield.

“Tastes so much better than Evander’s,” the former heavyweight champion says in the YouTube video entitled “Thanksgiving with the Tysons.”

In keeping with the holiday spirit, Tyson also calls Jones “a turkey,” and he later posted a photo on Instagram of the cake leftovers being placed in a dog dish for his dog Mars.

It's all fun and games until these two get in the ring on Saturday night.  I wouldn’t be surprised if we see one of these dudes take a nap.  They both look like much younger men.
