Tyson vs Jones Jr: Kevin McBride on forcing Mike Tyson’s retirement in 2005


0:46 Roy Jones Jr: Mike Tyson still has power

2:53 Looking back at Mike Tyson’s fight in Manchester in 2000, and the chaos that came with it…

Tyson and McBride are forever linked.

“The last time I saw him was at a Hall of Fame induction show,” McBride said. “I walked up to him and said: ‘Do you remember me?’

“Tyson said: ‘Yes Kevin, I remember you’.”

The man who retired Tyson in 2005 will watch his old rival return to the ring and harbours hope they could meet one more time.

“Tyson is in phenomenal shape. He looks like a man who is hungry for the game,” McBride said.

“He’s giving me motivation.

“Tyson will want to take Jones Jr out early. That’s what he likes to do.

“It’s amazing, out of the blue, that after 15 years he is coming back. But I hope nobody gets hurt.

“I’m a tree surgeon now, I’m strong through lifting logs. If the fight with Tyson ever came again I’d need just a few weeks to be ready.

“It’s never over until it’s over.”
