The announced to date Tyson vs Jones fight card features seven bouts. The previously revealed co-feature pits YouTuber Jake Paul (1-0, 1 KO) up against NBA vet Nate Robinson in a six-rounder at 188-pound. Paul makes his second appearance inside the squared circle, after stopping AnEsonGib in the first round this past January. Robinson makes his pro-boxing debut.

Also on the main card Badou Jack (22-3-3, 13 KO) faces off Blake McKernan (13-0, 6 KO) in an eight-rounder at 192 lbs. Jack, former WBA ‘regular’ light heavyweight champion and former WBC super-middleweight titleholder is coming off two defeats suffered by decision against Jean Pascal and Marcus Browne. Undefeated McKernan won his previous bout in August 2019 by unanimous decision against German Perez.

In addition, Viddal Riley (4-0, 2 KO) and Rashad Coulter (1-0, 1 KO) do a six-round battle at 210-pound catchweight. Boxer and YouTube Riley was last in action this past February, when he scored a unanimous decision against Muhammad Abdullah. Coulter, who also holds the 9-5 record in MMA, last fought back in June 2015 when he KO’d Armando Herrera Jr. in the first round, and made pro-boxing debut.

The Tyson vs Jones undercard is set to feature a trio of eight-round matchups. Unbeaten Jamaine Ortiz (13-0, 7 KO) takes on Nahir Albright (8-1, 2 KO). Irvin Gonzalez (14-2, 11 KO) faces off a yet to be determined opponent. The kick off is expected to see Joe Cusumano (18-3, 16 KO) up against Nick Jones (9-3, 6 KO) at heavyweight.

Boxing fans can watch Tyson vs Jones live on Triller pay-per-view. The finalized fight card is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
