Mike Tyson has spent months hyping up his return to the boxing ring, and he’s going to get paid extremely well for his efforts.

The 54-year-old boxer will reportedly earn $10 million for his exhibition fight against 51-year-old Roy Jones Jr. on Saturday night, according to Yahoo Sports’ reporter Kevin Iole.

According to boxing insider Dan Rafael, Jones’ guarantee is $1 million to step in the ring with Tyson and could possibly earn more if the PPV sells well.

Not a bad payday for what is going to be an exhibition match where there will be no official winner declared.

Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. will start at 9pm and will be available on TysononTriller.com for $49.99
