Former three-time world champion Jeff Fenech is concerned that Mike Tyson will have too much power for Roy Jones Jr when they clash on September 12 in an eight round exhibition bout.
“Mike looks in good shape, and Roy is in good shape and I think it’s going to be hard for these guys to have an exhibition,” Fenech told Sporting News. “I think if one of them hits the other, it could be a war and we might have something unforeseen happen. I think poor Roy might feel the power of Mike Tyson.
He added, “Danny Green doesn’t punch at all like Mike Tyson. I guarantee that – I trained them both. I’d hate Roy to get hurt, but Mike just looks so powerful. And he looks so great at the moment. He looks as good as he’s ever looked. His chest is pumped, it’s great to see him. It’s great to see Roy train, but I’d hate for anyone to get hurt. I think Mike is a good enough person and he’ll look after Roy.”
