Boxing legends Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr have slugged out a controversial draw that has stunned the boxing world.

Tyson dominated almost every round with veteran TV commentator Bob Sheridan declaring he scored the fight 79-73.

Tyson and Jones Jr fatigued quickly as the fight continued into the later rounds, but when the dust settled on the eight-round fight it was clear that Tyson had dominated.

A beaten up Jones Jr admitted after the fight that he was in terrible pain as a result of Tyson’s barrage of body shots.

However, when the judges’ decision was announced, the scored was ruled a draw.

The fight was sanctioned by the California State Athletic Commission as an exhibition fight that would not involve any official decision.

However, promoters announced before the fight a celebrity judging panel would be scoring the fight in an unofficial capacity.

Despite both fighters saying after the fight they accepted the controversial decision, the boxing world erupted in outrage as the dodgy call.

Music producing artist Murda Beatz summed it up best in a post on Twitter: “Tyson Got Robbed”.
