As ESPN eloquently put it, "former undisputed heavyweight champion Mike Tyson is making a comeback." Tyson, now age 54, will fight Roy Jones Jr. in an eight-round exhibition on Sept. 12 at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California. Tyson, in an appearance on ESPN's First Take on Thursday, explained his reasoning for a return to the ring. "It's because I can do it.

Not when you feel as beautiful as I do, and I'm sure that other people feel the same way. Last month, Jones, now age 51, expressed interest in a possible bout with Tyson. "I've been trying to enjoy retirement, but people don't seem to want to let me retire," Jones said.
