Tyson. I think if Tyson catch him, he gonna hurt him. But if Tyson can’t catch him, it’s gonna be a lousy fight.” – Evander Holyfield

“Tyson. I think Roy is going to get seriously hurt. He is a natural middleweight.” – Danny Williams

“Tyson. I think he has a chance but it’s a slim chance. Slimmer than Buster Douglas.” – James ‘Buster’ Douglas

“I don’t know what’s made Mike and Roy fight each other. I mean, they might be friends, I don’t know. But who’s going to win this fight? Roy Jones, in my opinion.” – Amir Khan

“I think Mike knocks Roy Jones out. But I did warn Mike that he has to be careful of Roy’s left to the body. That’s the punch Roy used to knock out Virgil Hill.” – Freddie Roach

“Tyson. I’ve studied them so much. I’ve watched so many films, so many fights with both of them. I think if Mike Tyson touches anybody, they’re going down no matter how old he is. I just don’t see him not touching Roy at some point in the fight.” – Tyron Woodley

“I’m going to have to go with Tyson. But it wouldn’t surprise me if Jones Jr. pulls something off – like he always has in his career.” – Oscar De La Hoya
