Iron Mike Tyson’s return to the ring will be an event so large that it will feature some hip-hop heavyweights.
"This event is going to go down in history, no doubt,” comments Lil Wayne 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.”
The eight-round contest between Tyson and Jones will headline a four-hour live event.
“The connection between boxing and music is undeniable,” comments Bobby Sarnevesht, executive chairman of viral entertainment platform Triller. “As a global language, music unites cultures, and we knew this historical moment needed to include some of the biggest names in the industry. Unparalleled to any other entertainment platform in the space, Triller is determined to give fans a night they will never forget.”
The WBC will score the exhibition fight, which is sanctioned by the California State Athletic Commission.
