The official poster has been released for the upcoming exhibition bout between boxing legends Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr.

The two former heavyweight champions will meet in an eight-round exhibition bout on Sept. 12 at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, Calif., available exclusively through pay-per-view and the social video platform Triller. The event will reportedly cost $49.99 to purchase.

This bout marks the first in-ring appearance in years for both men. Tyson retired in 2005 following a loss to Kevin McBride, while Jones, a four-division titleholder, fought as recently as February 2018. In his last professional fight, Jones defeated Scott Sigmon by unanimous decision.
