But don't expect too much of Tyson's return. Of course, the fight was sanctioned by the California State Athletic Commission, but it is still an exhibition fight and the CSAC executive director said last month that a lot of safety measures would be taken and he said. hints that Tyson and Jones would not be allowed to `` injure themselves significantly. As part of the fight agreement.
Likewise, it was also learned last Friday that under the deal, the fight will not be scored by any of the CSAC judges and the commission will not announce a winner after the "fight". Instead, the WBC will be in charge of scoring the fight. The organization has named former boxing world champions Christy Martin, Vinny Pazienza and Chad Dawson as judges for the Tyson vs Jones fight and the three will score the fight from a distance.
The WBC previously mentioned that each round will be rated and announced to the public, with each scoring criteria being considered. At the end of the bout, the WBC will present a “Frontline Fighting Belt” with a Black Lives Matter inscription and it will be presented to the “winner” after the 8 round bout.
Latest betting odds
Regardless of his worth, Iron Mike is still the betting favorite with less than 10 days to go to this show boxing bout. But after opening at -350 on BetOnline last July, when the betting lines for the fight were first revealed, Tyson's odds of beating Jones are now -200. Meanwhile, Jones' silver over went from the opening odds of +275 to +160 on 11/21/20.
In the other high-profile fight on the fight card, former NBA star Nate Robinson will take on YouTube star Jake Paul. Paul is four inches taller than Robinson but there is no doubt that the latter is the better athlete. Now this one is interesting because sports betting still has Paul as the -180 favorite to beat Robinson who is currently listed at +150. They are not fighters but Nate is a top athlete. Plus, he didn't look too bad in a short fight video posted last July:

Tyson vs Jones is the main draw for this fight card, but when it comes to betting, there might be better value in the Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson fight. Nothing against Jake Paul here but Nate is cut differently from Jake Paul. Don't tell Nate Robinson that size matters. The guy made a career out of playing in the land of giants. Of course, boxing and basketball are two entirely different sports. But the same goes for boxing and vlogging.
Mike Tyson Returns
- Mike Tyson (@MikeTyson) July 23, 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic literally ended sports last March and it was really a problem. But one of the things that set the fire burning, at least in the sport of boxing, was the rumors that Mike Tyson would be returning to the sport. Videos of Tyson's fight spread like wildfire and soon Tyson announced he would be returning to the ring.
At first, Tyson was offered $ 20 million by the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship to join their group, but that didn't materialize. An exhibition boxing fight with Roy Jones Jr. was soon born and the two boxing greats were first penciled to meet in an exhibition boxing fight on September 12. The fight was then postponed because Tyson reportedly wanted to fight in front of a live audience and they wanted to buy more time to get there.
But the pandemic has not slowed down and has increased in several parts of the United States. With precious time, the organizers finally decided to choose the date of November 28 without fans and with pay-per-view as the only revenue generator for the event. Whether it works or not is the promoters' problem. Fighting fans are thrilled to see the meanest man on the planet put on his boxing gloves, real fight or not.
Know the main point of the game. The goal of American football is to score points by carrying the ball from a starting point on a 120-yard long and 53. 3-yard wide field into a specially marked 10-yard-deep area at either end of the field called an end zone. Each team uses the end zone in front of them to score while trying to prevent the opposing team from reaching the end zone behind them.  Each end zone has a Y-shaped structure called the field goal which is positioned on the end line. The field goals are used to score points with special kicks
The end zone that a team is defending is usually referred to as “their” end zone. Thus, a team with yards ( 64. 0 m ) to go before it can score a touchdown is 30 yards ( 27. 4 m ) from its end zone. Teams trade possession of the ball according to strict rules. Whichever team is in possession of the ball is known as the “offense;” the other team is called the “defense. ”
Learn the time divisions. Football is divided into four quarters of 15 minutes each, with a break between the second and third periods called “halftime” that is normally 12 minutes long.  While the clock is réactive, the game is divided into even shorter segments called “plays ' or ' downs. '
A play begins when the ball is moved from the ground into the hands of the players, and ends when either the ball hits the ground, or the person holding the ball is tackled and his knee or elbow notes the ground. When a play is over, an official called a referee, places the ball on the yard marker which corresponds to his or her judgment of the place where the forward progress of the player with the ball was stopped. Each team has 4 downs and within those downs, they have to make ten yards from the line of scrimmage ( the starting point ). If the team fails to do so within the 4 downs, the offensive team has to hand over the ball to the opposing team. If the offense succeeds in taking the ball 10 yards in the 4 downs they get another 4 downs to move the ball 10 yards. The teams have 30 seconds to get into formation and begin the next play.
Play time can stop for a few different reasons : If a player runs out of bounds, a penalty is called, a flag is thrown, or a pass is thrown but not caught by anybody ( an incomplete pass ), the clock will stop while referees sort everything out.
Penalties are indicated by referees, who throw yellow flags onto the field when they see a violation. This lets everyone on the field know that a penalty has been called. Penalties normally result in the offending team losing between 5 - 15 yards of field place.  There are many penalties, but some of the most common are “offside” ( someone was on the wrong side of the line of scrimmage when the ball was snapped ), “holding” ( a player grabbed another player with his hands, and either player doesn’t have the ball, instead of blocking him properly ), ' false start ' ( When a player moves before the ball is snapped ), ' Unsportsmanlike conduct ' ( When a player does something that doesn’t show good sportsmanship, and “clipping” ( someone contacted an opposing player other than the ball carrier from behind and below the waist ).
The opening kickoff - At the very beginning of the game, the head referee flips a coin and the home team captain calls out which side of the coin will be face up. If correct, that captain may choose to kick off or to receive the opening kickoff or allow the visiting team captain to make that choice. Once the kicking and receiving teams are decided, the team captain who lost the coin toss gets to decide which goal his or her team will defend during the first half. This principal play is called the kickoff, and typically involves a long kick down field from one team to the other, with the team that kicked the ball rushing towards the team receiving the ball in order to prevent them from running the ball a long ways back towards the kicking team’s end zone. After halftime, there is a deuxième kickoff by whichever team did not perform the opening kickoff. Throughout the deuxième half, the end zones each team defends is the one opposite the end zone that team defended in the first half
Downs - The word “down” is synonymous with the word “chance” or ' plays ' in American . The offense is allowed four downs to move the ball at least 10 yards ( neuf. 1 m ) towards the end zone. Each play ends in a new down. If the goal of 10 yards ( 9. 1 m ) from the first down is achieved before the fourth down is over, the count resets to the first down, commonly noted as “1st and 10” to indicate that the standard 10 yards ( 9. 1 m ) are once again required to reset to the first down.  Otherwise, the downs count from one to four. If four downs pass without resetting to the first down, control of the ball passes to the other team
This means that a team that moves the ball 10 or more yards on each play will never be on the deuxième down. Every time the ball is moved 10 yards ( 9. 1 m ) or more in the proper direction, the next play is a first down with 10 yards ( 9. 1 m ) to go.
The distance required to reset to the first down is cumulative, so running 4 yards ( 3. 7 m ) on the first down, 3 yards ( 2. 7 m ) on the deuxième, and 3 yards ( 2. sept m ) on the third is enough for the next play to be a first down again.
If a play ends with the ball behind the line of scrimmage, the difference in yards is added to the total number of yards required for a first down. For example, if the quarterback is tackled sept yards ( 6. 4 m ) behind the line with the ball in his hands, the next play will be noted as “2nd and 17, ” meaning that 17 yards ( 15. 5 m ) must be covered in the next three plays to reset to a first down.
Instead of playing the fourth down, the offense can choose to punt the ball, which is a long kick that transfers control of the ball to the other team, but is likely to force them to start farther up the field than they would otherwise have been.
