Mike Tyson appears ready for a return to the ring.

 

The former heavyweight champion of the world is slated to face Roy Jones Jr. in an exhibition match on Sept. 12, according to Yahoo Sports' Kevin Iole. The battle will be held at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, Calif.

 

Tyson and Jones will be wearing headgear during the match as well as oversized gloves, per Iole. 

 

“This isn’t a situation where they’re going out there to try to take each other’s heads off,” California State Athletic Commission director Andy Foster told Iole. “They’re just going to be in there moving around the ring and letting fans see these legends.”

They aren't going after knockouts + the headgear. 

 

How long will Mike uphold the "aren't going to try for KOs"?  I'm guessing until he receives a punch to the face.
