For what’s touted be one of the biggest professional fight events in recent history – Mike Tyson’s November 28th comeback bout in Los Angeles against Roy Jones Jr. – multiple high-profile rap artists like Lil Wayne, French Montana, DaBaby, Wiz Khalifa and YG are slated to perform.
“This event is going to go down in history, no doubt,” Lil Wayne said in a statement. “I’m grateful to be a part of it and share the arena with two living legends. I’m stoked to perform and give the fans something they can rock to.” Montana added, “It’s truly a moment. I’m honored and can’t wait to see Tyson and Jones fight.”
Tyson, now 54, hasn’t laced up the gloves for a professional fight since his June 2005 loss to Irishman Kevin McBride. The hyped up eight-round contest between Tyson, the controversial former undisputed world heavyweight champion, and Jones, a former four-division world champion, will headline a four-hour live event. Fans can stream it all on www.TysonOnTriller.com for $49.99.
