The owner of Triller, the PPV platform the Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr exhibition match will take place on, has issued the following statement regarding the rumors swirling around about the rules regarding the fight:
“Know there have been some false rumors swirling, so to be crystal clear. The WBC is scoring the fight. There could be a knockout and there will be one winner. Anyone who says there is no judging or no winner either does not understand the rules or has their own agenda. Unquestionably, 100 percent. DraftKings is the betting partner and is taking bets on the fight in New Jersey, New Hampshire, and Illinois. The only difference is the fight is the gloves are 12 ounces, there are eight rounds and the rounds are two minutes rather than three. That is it,” Kavanaugh said in the statement.
While the fight will be scored it will not go against either of the fighter's official records.
