Mike Tyson: “We’re throwing punches at one another . this is often getting to be my definition of fun … broken eye sockets, broken jaw, broken rib. That’s fun to me.”
Roy Jones Jr: “He’s still Tyson , he’s still one among the strongest, most explosive people that ever touched a prize ring . If anything, I made an error getting into with him.
“He’s the larger guy, he’s the explosive guy. He’s getting to have all the first-round fireworks, not me.
“I do have first-round fireworks, but he’s known for more first-round fireworks than anybody to ever touch boxing, aside from maybe George Foreman.”
