The upcoming Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. pay-per-view event is set to feature a little bit of everything, including a pinch of MMA.

Triller, the social media platform that is marketing the upcoming exhibition boxing bout between Tyson and Jones Jr., has announced several new bouts for the event that is now expected to take place on Nov. 28. It was originally scheduled for Sept. 12 at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, Calif., but the date was changed for undisclosed reasons. It is not yet known whether the event will still be held at the originally announced venue.

UFC veteran Rashad Coulter fights England’s Viddal Riley (4-0, 2 KOs) in an eight-round bout scheduled for 210 pounds. Coulter, 38, holds a 9-5 record in MMA including a 1-3 stint with the UFC, where he competed at heavyweight and light heavyweight. He parted ways with the UFC following a unanimous decision win over Yaozong Hu in November 2018.

“Daywalker” has one pro boxing bout on his record, a first-round knockout of Armando Herrera Jr. at a show in Fort Worth, Texas, in June 2015.

In addition to boxing, Riley, 23, is known as a popular internet personality and is currently signed to Mayweather Promotions. In his most recent outing in February, he defeated Muhammad Abdullah by four-round unanimous decision.

Former two-division boxing champion Badou Jack (22-3-3, 13 KOs) has also been announced for the card. He faces Blake McKernan (13-0, 6 KOs) in a 192-pound bout.

Rounding out the main card is a previously announced 188-pound bout between YouTube star Jake Paul and three-time NBA dunk contest champion Nate Robinson. Despite Paul recently making headlines for weapons being seized from his home following an FBI raid, no official word has been given on a possible cancellation.

Tyson-Jones Jr. was originally reported to carry a PPV purchase price of $49.99, but it is not known if that price has changed along with the new date.
